The third Ashes Test match between England and Australia at Old Trafford, Manchester ended in a draw on Monday.

The tourists had to win at Old Trafford to regain the urn and were in a commanding position as England collapsed to 37 for three on Monday's final day after Michael Clarke's declaration left them needing 332 to win.

But then rain prevented any further play and the match was abandoned as a draw with England, now 2-0 up with just two to play in the five-match series, assured of retaining the Ashes after wins by 14 runs and a mammoth 347 runs in the first two Tests at Trent Bridge and Lord's respectively.
