    England were bowled out for 197 in their second innings, chasing 383 to win on Day 5 of the fourth Ashes Test against Australia.

    The result gave the Aussies a 2-1 lead in the five-match series, and they will retain the trophy since they cannot lose the series from hereon.

    Steve Smith was named man of the match for his knocks of 211 and 82 as Australia dominated from the first innings, despite a couple of rain delays that threatened a drawn match.

    Pat Cummins took 7 wickets in the match for Australia while Stuart Broad took 5 for England.

    The fifth Ashes Test will begin on Thursday 12th September at the Kia Oval in London.
