OUT! Caught. Jack Leach to Josh Hazlewood. Stock ball half volley, outside off stump on the front foot flick, in the air uncontrolled to short mid wicket, by Root. England have won! Two in two for Leach and two catches in two for Root, in the end a convincing win for the home side a win of 135 runs, Wade the pick of the batters for Australia, Leach and Broad the pick of the bowlers for England, five wickets in the last session of the day gives England the win. A 2-2 draw for The Ashes series of 2019, a great contest between two great bowling attacks, Smith the pick of the players, scoring a ridiculous amount of runs in the 7 innings' he played, lots of good bowling from both teams and I think Australia showed why they have one of the best bowling attacks in the world.
76.5

OUT! Caught. Jack Leach to Nathan Lyon. Stock length ball, middle stump on the front foot sweeping, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to mid wicket, by Root.
