Australia has retained the Ashes, after defeating England by 185 runs in the fourth Test at Old Trafford to take a 2-1 lead in the five-match series. England managed to hold out until 6.15pm on the last day, before Josh Hazelwood trapped Craig Overton LBW to win the game. Steve Smith and Pat Cummins played the major part in both the victory at Old Trafford and Australia’s retention of the Ashes, but captain Tim Paine should also take some of the credit. For its part, England seem to becoming overly reliant on miracles.
