49.6 Chris Woakes to Cameron Bancroft

FOUR! Chris Woakes to Cameron Bancroft. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed in the air under control past long off for 4 runs. Drilled back down the ground and a pump of the fists from Bancroft after he hits the winning runs in his first Ashes Test. This pair have broken the record for the highest unbeaten opening stand in a successful Test chase. Australia come out as victors by ten wickets after four and a bit hard-fought days in which nobody really knew who was going to win until the very end.England have a few issues to look at, their lack of potency with the ball on a flat wicket and the batsmen's struggles with the short ball. As well as the way the tail are being blown away so comfortably. The hosts though also have a couple of issues going into the second Test with their number three a problem and the reliance on Steve Smith who was superb once again in this match.All eyes now move to the next Test which is a day/night affair at Adelaide, England will be looking forward to the prospect of the pink ball and the movement which should come with it. See you then.
