After losing 3 matches of the series, England managed to draw the fourth match of the Ashes Series. When the game started on the last day of the Test match played at the Sydney Cricket Ground, England’s score was 30 runs without any loss. At the start of the day, England needed 357 runs to win while Australia needed 10 wickets. From the start of the day, England was inclined to draw instead of winning the match. This can be estimated from 9 off 58 balls by Haseeb Hameed and 4 off 29 balls by Dawid Malan. England’s wickets kept falling from time to time, on this occasion Zak Crawley 77 and Ben Stokes 60 runs showed some resistance. Johnny Bairstow (41), Jack Leach (26), and skipper Joey Root (24) were the top scorers. At one point, the victory of Australia was just one wicket away while Stuart Broad and James Anderson were on the crease.
England’s last pair defended all the balls of the last overs of the innings and finally saved their country from another humiliating defeat. Usman Khawaja, who scored centuries in both innings, was awarded Man of the Match. It should be noted that in the recent Ashes series, England has shown the worst performance in the history of the country. Australia has won the first 3 matches and won the title against England. After the fourth match was drawn, the threat of a clean sweep of England has been averted.
