Follow the fifth Test

Steve Smith remained an immovable object after Jofra Archer dented Australia's reply to England's first-innings 294 on day two of the fifth and final Ashes Test at The Oval.

However, the team from Down Under quickly got the breakthrough of Burns (47) as he was dismissed by Josh Hazelwood.All-rounder Ben Stokes (20) was not able to stay at the crease for a long time, as he was sent back by Mitchell Marsh reducing England to 130/3.The Three Lions did not lose any more wicket before the tea break and they went into the interval with the score of 169/3.After the tea break, Cummins rattled the stumps of Root (57) to leave England in a spot of bother.

"I've found batting tough all summer in this series so it was nice in the end to take the shackles off and try to have some fun".

The man Australian cricket fans love to hate, Mitchell Marsh, has made his critics eat their words by turning in an inspired bowling performance to rip through England's batting line-up on a disappointing day for the hosts.

That is as a result of the moon being at apogee - the point in its orbit where it is the farthest from Earth. Making Friday night and Saturday night the flawless opportunity in Perth to witness the smaller moon.

But Paine said his side were "very hungry" to complete the job and win their first Test series in England since 2001. "It could have been better but we'd definitely take eight for 270 on that". Root enjoyed a milestone moment on Thursday when he became the 12th England batsman to register 7,000 Test runs.

Root has reached fifty 61 times in Tests but has gone on to reach three figures on just 16 occasions. However, the 28-year-old required a large degree of luck to reach the landmark figure after being dropped by Australian trio Peter Siddle, Tim Paine and the diving Smith. Then wicketkeeper Paine failed to cling on to a one-handed chance in front of David Warner at first slip.

With Australia trailing by 147 runs with six wickets still in hand It will be a worry for Root that Smith has turned six of those halves into hundreds and two into double hundreds.

Australia has already retained the urn after winning the fourth test at Old Trafford last week to take a 2-1 lead in the series.
