Manchester: Steve Smith is chasing the ghost of Sir Donald Bradman after marking his return from concussion with an epic double century to guide Australia from danger and give the visitors the very real chance of retaining the Ashes at Old Trafford.

Ben Stokes' Headingley miracle must feel an eternity ago now for a demoralised England, whose best chance of saving the fourth Test and keeping alive the fight for the urn may lie in Manchester's infamous weather.

Australia have retained the Ashes after England won the fifth Test at the Oval. The star of the series was undoubtedly Steve Smith . Speaking after the final

Tortured, malnourished children and corpses in the tens of thousands have been found in a sophisticated network of Deep Underground Military Bases (DUMBS) that ran beneath the US, Canada, Mexico, Australia, Asia and across Europe.

England had seen Jofra Archer as being super Smith's Kryptonite after the speedster's brutal spell at Lord's, but they are now back to square one after Smith defied Joe Root's men for just over eight and a quarter hours (497 minutes) to make 211. Smith can still say Archer has not got him out.

The knock was the Australian wonderbat's 26th Test century, his third double - and his sixth Ashes hundred in England, more than any Englishman.

Smith is now averaging 141.9 from his past nine Ashes Tests, stretching back to the final match of the 2015 series. At most, he will need 113 more runs to ensure he averages 100 in back-to-back Ashes campaigns, a feat that eluded the greatest player the game has seen in Bradman. If he does not have to bat again here, 13 at The Oval will do the trick.

Smith's classy response to double ton 'Pommy boos'

Smith's classy response to double ton 'Pommy boos' It's hard to believe that there are fans interested in booing Steve Smith, but that's exactly what happened on his way to 211.

The tourists have been busy putting the final touches on their preparation for the first Test in Cardiff.

England have only themselves to blame for their predicament, dropping three catches and giving Smith another life with a wicket from a no-ball.

Smith received little help from the remaining frontline batsmen but former skipper Tim Paine, who made 58 in a welcome return to the runs, and Mitchell Starc, who hit a whirlwind 54, provided enough support to enable Australia to make 8-497, their highest first innings total of the series.

Australia broke England's new opening combination with Pat Cummins removing Joe Denly to a brilliant catch at short leg by Matthew Wade. The home side were 1-23 at stumps on the second day.

Adding to England's woes, Stokes is nursing a shoulder injury, which forced him from the field briefly in the second session and prevented him from returning to the bowling crease.

Rain is forecast for the first session on Friday but the outlook is brighter from then through to the end of the weekend. Should it hold true, Australia would still have the best part of three days to get a result.

Ashes 2019: Root proud of England's character in Old Trafford defeat

Ashes 2019: Root proud of England's character in Old Trafford defeat Joe Root believes England showed great grit and character, despite defeat at Old Trafford spelling the end of their Ashes hopes.

Like many battles in history, it was fought because one person wanted to be king of another place. In this case, William of Normandy in France wanted to be King of England . The Battle of Hastings was extremely important for the history of England as it completely changed who was in charge.

Smith has achieved the improbable of coming back from more than a year out an even better player.

In a series dominated by bowlers, Smith stands head and shoulders above all else. With the exception of Stokes, who is 262 runs behind, he has scored more than double the runs of everyone else.

Not even the sickening blow at Lord's has halted Smith's charge. If anything, the arrival of Archer steeled the world's No.1 Test batsman to find another level. The pace sensation was brought back to earth with a thud, returning 0-97 in his first wicketless Test innings.

Smith must have had a chuckle to himself when Stuart Broad went around the wicket with the second new ball, and again when Joe Root moved a man from second slip to silly mid-off for a Hail Mary.

They tried to bowl short, full and occasionally in the channel outside off stump but could not sustain the pressure.

Jack Leach appeared the man most likely to break through, drawing a slice which fell in between two men.

England thought they had Smith out for 118 when Leach had him caught at slip by Stokes but the batsman was called back to the crease after replays showed the spinner had over-stepped. A matter of inches cost them 93 runs.

Comment: Paine has mandate to lead but Smith should captain Australia again

Comment: Paine has mandate to lead but Smith should captain Australia again I believe Smith will captain Australia again and have no doubt he will be a better leader next time around because of the very harsh lessons he learnt. I’ve seen some of the commentary since the fourth Test, including the opinion of Steve Harmison that Smith can’t be forgiven and will always be remembered for what happened in South Africa. It seems a lot of people passing judgment have forgotten about others who have transgressed with ball tampering in the past or crossed the line various times in the game.

Paine also benefited from England's sloppiness, put down on nine by Jason Roy in the cordon and on 49 by sub fielder Sam Curran, who was on for the injured Stokes.

Had Roy held onto his regulation chance, Australia would have been 6-246 with only the tail to come.

England down Australia to draw Ashes series.
England have won the fifth and final Ashes Test inside four days at The Oval, defeating the visiting side by 135 runs. It wasn't without some push-back from the Australian outfit though, Matthew Wade striking a brilliant 117 to keep the fight alive, until a last session collapse saw the eventual end of what was an unlikely chase. Stuart Broad and Jack Leach were the chief destroyers for the hosts, as Australia's openers failed once again. There are many questions still to be answered in the fall-out of a series that gets nothing more than a solid pass-mark. require(["inlineoutstreamAd", "c.
