England huffed and puffed to 228, a total achieved only after their lower order rallied and scored useful runs late in the innings. All of Australia's bowlers took wickets.

Australia, on the other hand, were slow at the start but they didn't lose wickets and moved steadily towards their goal. White's century was supremely compiled and Clarke made a valuable half-century. It was the first successful chase of the series. Australia lead 3-0 with four matches to play. The next game is at Lord's on September 12.

I hope you've enjoyed our coverage today, on behalf of Will Luke, this is George Binoy signing off. That's all folks.

Anderson to Hussey, FOUR runs, that's it, it's all over, Hussey plays a half-pull, half-hook to the boundary ... Australia take a 3-0 lead and they won this game at a canter

Anderson to Hussey, 4 runs, Hussey jumps down the track and chips the ball high in the air over wide mid-on, there's no one there and the ball bounces and rolls slowly towards the boundary, it doesn't get there but the batsmen run four!
48.1

Anderson to Ferguson, 1 run, Ferguson jumps down the track and dabs to the off side, the batsmen hesitate but then decide to take on the fielder, Bopara misses at the bowler's end with Ferguson at least a foot short

Australia need 8 off the last two overs, Anderson will bowl the penultimate one.

END OF OVER:
48 | 1 Run 1 Wkt | AUS: 221/4 (8 runs required from 12 balls, RR: 4.60, RRR: 4.00)

Wright to Ferguson, 1 leg bye, massive appeal for lbw after Wright cuts the ball back into Ferguson and hits the pad, that was a touch too high
  • Australia eye 7-0 whitewash over sleepy England

    This was just another day, just another defeat, for a team of cricketers going through the motions as the summer winds to a close. But Australia are eyeing an unthinkable 7-0 whitewash
