bowled him with a jaffa! Cut back sharply and Onions didn't have an answer. Australia level the series 1-1 and Johnson has five
Australia level with crushing win
Marcus North wins the Man-of-the-Match award, and that just about wraps up our coverage of this enthralling match. It goes without saying that you are cordially invited, nay required, to join us - Will Luke and Brydon Coverdale - for the fifth Test a week on Thursday, and do have a read of the bulletin and check the video highlights. Until that fateful day in south London, it's goodbye, and thanks for your company.
More disgraceful booing as Ponting comes for a chat.. This is just not on, I'm afraid. Does he have a message for his booing fans? "Not really. Nope." Good on you, Ponting. "There was a little bit of cloud around and if we bowled well enough, we'd create chances, and we did. Clark was spot on - spinners have found it tricky at Headingley and the four quicks paid dividends for us." Coming together at the right time? "Couldn't have asked more for this game. We've dominated the game from the first ball and won it in two-and-a-half days and some of our guys are getting better and better [in the series]."
Right, here's Strauss: "It's pretty hard to take. We didn't really turn up at this game and we've got to take it on the chin. It's 1-1 in the series and we've got to lift ourselves [for The Oval]. Once you're bowled out for a hundred, it's pretty hard to come back." Any regrets about team selection? "We probably could've done with an extra batter, but we felt taking 20 wickets would be pretty forward." Changes for The Oval? "Depends on Freddie. We'll sit down and not get too emotional about things."
Full refunds for tomorrow, details on Yorkshire's club website and on the reverse of each ticket. "Day five tickets were non-refundable, but holders will be invited to any future Yorkshire game in 2009, which is nice," Andrew offers.
The umpires all go and collect their medals. A smiling nPower girl flashes a smile. Superb action.

End of match
What a comeback by Australia this has been - by Johnson, too. They looked a team lacking direction after Lord's, but two Tests later they've utterly outplayed England from the start, who have been beaten by an innings and 80 runs. That's an emphatic slapping if ever there was one. Crucially, the onus is now on England to win if they're to regain the Ashes. It's beautifully set up - 1-1 with one to play. Ponting waves to the crowd - still a few boos from the crowd, which is now no longer even vaguely amusing, and it's handshakes all round for Australia's players who make their way off the pitch.
slower ball but way, way too wide
fast, angled across him. Onions swishes and misses
and he leaves this alone outside off
full but wide and driven to cover
Poor old Stu Clark's chuntering away. He's not used to conceding so many...
prods and misses outside off
oh what a shot that is! A delicious clip off his legs through midwicket. Beautiful! Hold the pose, Harmy
defended to the off side
fantastic tail-end muppetry here, Harmison chipping him with a bat that sounded as though it was made of plywood, and the ball somehow fell short of mid-on. Outstanding
defended out to the off side
and again, he plays and misses outside off. Onions hasn't much of a clue here
huge appeal from Haddin and the slips, but not Johnson, as Onions plays and misses outside off. Yes, misses. Nowhere near it. No way was he near that.
Short leg's in
nearly bowled him! Horrid short ball hits him hard and nastily on the glove, and then very nearly dribbles onto his stumps
Australia on the verge of levelling the series. Just one to go: Mr Onions
got him! Has he? Yes! The thinnest of edges on that as Swann drives outside off. Swann's utterly unconvinced but up goes the finger and that ends a fine, entertaining knock
well wide of the off stump, Swann swings and misses
Clark puts his cap back on and drops three almighty f-bombs in a row. He is chuntering some now! Not a happy chap at the moment.
cuts wider of the off stump, Harmison leaves it well alone
flicked finer for four more! Oh this'll upset Ponting no end.
shot! Attempted yorker on leg stump and Harmison unveils an Atherton-esque flick off his toes through midwicket for four. Beautiful
leaves it alone outside off, and Clark's no-balled. They've not been very good today, Australia's bowlers. Plenty of no-balls, Hilfenhaus in particular. Schrecklich von Hilfenhaus, genau
shuffles across his stumps but it's wanged down the leg-side
