Australia completed a historic 5-0 whitewash over England as they won the fifth Ashes 2013-14 Test by 281 runs at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG) on January 5, 2014. England were bowled out for 166 chasing a monumental 448-run target on Day Three.

 

Ryan Harris finished with five wickets in the innings and Mitchell Johnson took three. Ben Stokes (32) and Stuart Broad (42) showed some lower-order resistance but they only delayed the inevitable as Australia wrapped up the match much before the scheduled end of play on Day Three.

 

The post-tea session began with England at 87 for three. But England lost four wickets in the first two overs after the break. Michael Carberry (43) and Gary Ballance (7) were dismissed by Mitchell Johnson. Then Jonny Bairstow (0) and Scott Borthwick (4) fell to Nathan Lyon.

 

Stokes and Broad added 44 runs for the eighth wicket. Stokes smashed two fours and two sixes in one over off Lyon. But he then dragged one onto the stumps off Harris’s bowling.

 

Broad then took the charge and hit fours sixes in total. But he too was bowled by Harris. Then two deliveries later Boyd Rankin edged on to Michael Clarke at second slip. That was the end of the match and the series.

 

Brief scores:

 

Australia 326 (Shane Watson 43, Steven Smith 115, Brad Haddin 75; Ben Stokes 6 for 99) and 276 (Chris Rogers 119, George Bailey 46; Scott Borthwick 3 for 33, James Anderson 2 for 46) beat England 155 (Ben Stokes 47, Stuart Broad 30*; Peter Siddle 3 for 23, Mitchell Johnson 3 for 33, Ryan Harris 3 for 36) and 166 (Michael Carberry 43, Stuart Broad 42; Ryan Harris 5 for 25) by 281 runs.
