68.3
Catch
OUT! Caught. Broad to Siddle. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to mid off, fielded by Anderson. England have won this match by 74 runs and in doing so, they have also won this Ashes series. The action witnessed today was quite magnificent with the momentum switching umpteen times between the two sides. Stuart Broad will steal the headlines with his six wicket haul and he deserves everything he gets, outstanding performance. Harris with the ball and Warner with the bat, were the lone stand out performances for Australia. The tourists seemed to be heading for a clear victory but the Warner dismissal changed everything. England have now won three Ashes series in a row.
