England scrapes a draw by 1 wkt, some good resistance and fight from a few of the team.
I reckon the Aussies batted to long in their second dig. Had they declared much earlier, they may well have been travelling to Hobart looking for a whitewash !!

Some real positives to be taken from this match in the end. Bairstow, Stokes, Crawley and Leach found some form to different degrees, Broad back to his best and there was an obvious step up in desire. A shame about the injuries but a chance for the squad players to step up perhaps.

5th Test in Hobart. very green pitch and overcast. England win the toss and elected to bowl.

First drinks break, Australia 29 for 3. Warner and Smith both out for ducks! super start.
Huge chance for England to win a Test.

Makes a change for the bowlers to let the side down. If Crawley hadn't dropped Labaschagne the first session would have been near perfect.
