In the first innings, Australia were dominant! They reached 527-7 and then declared, and England struggled getting only 368 all out!

So, with a lead of 159, Australia entered a rain-disrupted 4th day and got 172-7. At the start of the 5th day the Aussies declared.

England’s second innings started with them scoring 35-3 before lunch. Then, they scored another 2 runs before rain stopped play. Slightly before 5 o’clock the captains shook hands on a draw, which means that, thanks to the rain, England have retained the Ashes!
