Steve Smith is possibly bent upon emulating the Don in the 1930 Ashes. Since he’s on the mark, he’s entitled to a bit of fun. After the Old Trafford win, he donned glasses and let out a roar. Irate English fans read it as a slur on Jack Leach, who stuck it out with Stokes at Head­­ingley. Scream on, Smith doesn’t care.

After the clocked ticked into the final hour with 13.3 overs remaining, Hazlewood ended Overton's defiant knock of 21 off 105 deliveries to dismiss England for 197, sparking wild Australia celebrations as they avoided more final-day agony and took a 2-1 lead.

The outstanding Pat Cummins (4-43) removed Jason Roy and Headingley hero Ben Stokes before lunch, but England had hope of saving the match when they were six wickets down at tea, with Joe Denly (53) one of only two men to depart in the afternoon session.

England resumed on Sunday in deep trouble on 18-2 and needing a highly improbable 383 to win, but more realistically to bat out for a draw which would give them the chance of a series victory with one match remaining at The Oval next week.
