Ashes 2019: England beat Australia in the Oval Test to level the series 2-2, Twitter reacts

Posted On / /

England beat Australia by 135 runs in the fifth and final Ashes Test at The Oval on Sunday to level the series 2-2.

It’s the first time an Ashes series has ended in a draw since 1972.

Australia have already retained the Ashes Urn but their goal of a first outright series win on England soil in 18 years failed as they got out for 263 in their second innings on Day 4.

Matthew Wade was Australia’s top scorer with 117 after beginning to worry England as the visitors chased an unlikely winning target of 399. Wade was stumped by Jonny Bairstow off a delivery from England captain Joe Root.

Earlier, England resumed their second innings on 313-8 and was all out for 329.

Australia won the first Test at Edgbaston by 251 runs, the next Test at Lord’s was drawn before England drew level with a one-wicket win in a thrilling third Test at Headingley. Australia won the fourth test at Old Trafford by 185 runs.
