England fell to a 185-run defeat at Old Trafford as Australia retained the urn and head to their last worldwide red-ball match trailing the five-match series 2-1.

Dominic Sibley of Warwickshire and Kent's Zak Crawley have reportedly impressed England's selectors with their batting for their counties and it had been thought they could come in to shake up the batting - a repeated problem for England throughout the series.

England have named an unchanged squad for the fifth and final Ashes Test at the Oval as Joe Root looks to salvage a consolation win after Sunday's disappointment of failing to regain the Ashes. Australia retains the Ashes, baby.

But the 30-year-old's first Test innings since suspension saw him score 144 at Edgbaston, a hundred that helped Australia recover from 122-8 - and he followed that up with 142 in the second innings of a match his side eventually won by 251 runs. "His last three dismissals have all been exactly the same".

Each Curran and Woakes missed out at Previous Trafford.

The all-rounder bowled just 10.5 overs in Australia's first innings at Old Trafford before being forced off the field with right shoulder soreness and did not bowl for the remainder of the Test. "I expect Woakes to come back at the Oval".
