76OUTStokes to S Smith, out Caught by (sub)J Root!! A swift end to the Aussie innings. Third wicket for Stokes in the over and his 6th overall. Smith had no option but to play the big shot, tried to go over mid-on, but hit it straight to the fielder there. Easy catch and Australia end on 326. S Smith c (sub)J Root b Stokes 115(154) [4s-17 6s-1]326/10
75.4DROPPEDStokes to Lyon, no run, dropped by Anderson at 4th slip! Lyon flashing away from the body, gets a healthy edge, just carried to a diving Anderson, who went with his left-hand, it didn't stick. The fielder at third slip, tried to go for the rebound, but the ball had hit the turf by then. Lyon survives325/9
75.2OUTStokes to Siddle, out Caught by Bairstow!! Stokes is on a hat-trick now. Golden duck for Siddle. Maiden 5-fer for Stokes as his chuffed team-mates come in to congratulate him. Regulation length ball in the corridor of uncertainty, Siddle fiddled at it, got a thin edge and held by Bairstow. Just about carried to him. Siddle c Bairstow b Stokes 0(1)325/9
75.1OUTStokes to R Harris, out Caught by J Anderson!! Harris is gone! Drives a length ball uppishly and finds short cover. Anderson catches it and kicks the ball away - letting out all the frustration. 4th wicket for Stokes and Harris' little cameo has come to an end. R Harris c J Anderson b Stokes 22(27) [4s-2 6s-1]325/8
74.3SIXJ Anderson to R Harris, SIX, Harris is entertaining the crowd now! That's a fab pull shot, short and outside off, Harris got into a good position as he went on the back foot and then pulled it over deep midwicket. More worries for the mentally shot England team. Harris certainly liked that as he followed the path of the ball. A good catch in the crowd too - on the rebound as the first man shells it324/7
73FOURJ Anderson to R Harris, FOUR, magnificent shot! He has tried to hit everything hard this over, this one is pure timing. A back foot punch through cover and the timing takes it all the way to the ropes312/7

58.5OUTJohnson to Rankin, out Bowled!! CASTLED! Mitchell Johnson wipes out England. This was speared in very full, Rankin desperately aims to defend, the ball deflects off his pad and cannons on to the middle stump. David Warner wraps Mitch with a hug. That is tea on day 2 at the SCG. Rankin b Johnson 13(22) [4s-2]155/10
58FOURLyon to Broad, FOUR, slower through the air and outside off, Broad swings it with all his might, it does not have the impetus to zoom over long-off though. The ball just about bounced before the fence. Ryan Harris made a gallant attempt to grasp that but his dive ends in vain155/9
57.3FOURLyon to Rankin, FOUR, on a length and on off, Rankin shoves it to the deep mid wicket shot. Powerful strike that150/9
55.2FOURLyon to Broad, FOUR, much better shot from Broad. This was quicker and on middle, Broad bends down and sweeps it to the deep square leg fence139/9
54.2FOURR Harris to Broad, FOUR, length ball on middle, Broad goes on the backfoot, frees his arms and smashes it to the deep mid wicket fence134/9
54FOURLyon to Rankin, FOUR, England avoid the follow-on. Lyon keeps it full on the stumps, Rankin drives it off the front foot to long on. Rankin and Broad punch gloves as well130/9

61.3OUTRankin to Siddle, out Caught by Bairstow!! Short of a length and outside off again, Siddle hooks, feathers it to the keeper. Bairstow jumps up and snaffles it. So, Siddle becomes Rankin's maiden victim in Tests. End of the Aussie innings as well. Siddle c Bairstow b Rankin 4(6)276/9
59OUTBorthwick to R Harris, out Caught by Carberry!! Double strike for England. Tossed up on off, Harris goes hard for a slog sweep, he does not get requisite timing behind it, Carberry at deep mid-wicket snaps it up, coming forward and diving to his left. The Barmy army decked up in pink celebrate. Now why did Cook introduce KP ahead of this Durham guy? R Harris c Carberry b Borthwick 13(10) [4s-1 6s-1]266/8
58.5SIXBorthwick to R Harris, SIX, in the air, the fielder makes good ground at deep mid-wicket and takes it, but he's gone over the ropes. Flighted delivery on the stumps, Harris slogs across the line, he didn't get it from the middle of the bat, Carberry takes it inches ahead of the ropes but with the momentum on the dive, he goes over the fence.266/7
58.4FOURBorthwick to R Harris, FOUR, flighted delivery outside off stump, Harris hangs back and slaps it powerfully in front of square on the off-side. The ball races away through cover-point260/7
57.1FOURRankin to Chris Rogers, FOUR, gentle loose half volley outside off, Rogers leans into the drive and caresses it through the covers, expert placement as well252/7
55.4OUTStokes to Johnson, out Bowled!! Tries to be too cute and is bowled this time. Shuffles across to off - a pre-meditated stroke that - and misses the clip to leg as the ball hits off and middle. Stokes has a few nice words to say to Johnson as he walks off - I'm not sure you'd want to do that, to a man who has been destroyer-in-chief in this series. They check for the no-ball, it's close, but Stokes had some part of his boot behind the line. Johnson b Stokes 4(3) [4s-1]244/7

31.4OUTR Harris to Rankin, out Caught by Clarke!! That's it! Australia win 5-0. Only the third whitewash in Ashes history. Good length delivery outside off stump, Rankin slashes hard, gets a thick edge and Clarke holds on to a very good catch. The ball was travelling mind you, but Clarke did well to lean behind and take it with his fingers pointing up. That's a fifer for Ryano. Rankin c Clarke b R Harris 0(2)166/10
31.2OUTR Harris to Broad, out Bowled!! Broad's fun comes to an end. This was a fuller delivery on the stumps, Broad makes room and looks to go over the off-side but misses it completely and the ball hits the leg-stump. Australia one wicket away from a 5-0 victory. Broad b R Harris 42(36) [4s-3 6s-4]166/9
31.1SIXR Harris to Broad, SIX, Broad is just enjoying here, short delivery on the body, Broad swivels and pulls it over the man at fine leg, he just about clears the ropes166/8
30.4SIXLyon to Broad, SIX, floated around off, Broad gets down on his knees and slog sweeps it powerfully again over deep mid wicket. Lyon has to change his line here157/8
30.2SIXLyon to Broad, SIX, Lyon keeps throwing it up, Broad gets to the pitch of the ball and plays a good pick up shot over the deep mid wicket fence151/8
29.5FOURR Harris to Broad, FOUR, banged in short again around off, Broad rocks back and pulls it nicely to the deep mid wicket fence144/8
