England has won the fifth Ashes test at The Oval by 135 runs, after bowling Australia out for 263. The win meant that it was the first time since 1972 that an Ashes series had ended in a draw, with Australia having already retained the Ashes. Matt Wade scored a defiant 117, while Steve Smith was an obvious choice for the Compton/Miller award for the man of the series, having scored 774 runs. Opener David Warner scored just 95 runs for the series, with Stuart Board dismissing him in seven of Warner’s 10 innings.
