Australia beat England by 185 runs to retain Ashes
Manchester: Australia has retained the Ashes as they beat England by 185 runs at Old Trafford in another thriller.

With fourth Test match coming to an end, it is Australia who are 2-1 up.

Pat Cummins led the way before Josh Hazlewood struck as Australia retained the Ashes with a 185-run win over England in the fourth Test at Old Trafford on Sunday.

England, set a huge target of 383 to win, was bowled out for 197 following some spirited lower-order defiance.

Cummins, the world's top-ranked Test bowler, took 4-43 in 24 overs.

The match ended when Craig Overton, who faced 105 balls, was lbw to Hazlewood for 21 after the tailender's review failed to overturn umpire Kumar Dharmasena's decision. Victory ensured Australia kept hold of the Ashes at 2-1 up with one to play in the five-Test campaign.

If Australia avoids defeat at the Oval next week they will won their first Test series in England for 18 years.
