England beats Australia by one wicket

Monday 26th August, 2019

England has defeated Australia by one wicket to win an epic third Test at Headingley on Sunday and keep the Ashes alive.

Unbeaten century-maker Ben Stokes has delivered England an unprecedented and unbelievable victory in the third Ashes Test.

England, bowled out for just 67 in their first innings, needed 73 more runs to reach a victory target of 359 when last man, the bespectacled Jack Leach, came into bat on the fourth day.

Ben Stokes dragged his country from the point of defeat to a narrow victory over Australia with an innings that almost defied belief.

Ben Stokes said “It’s unbelievable I have to take it all in. I’m not sure that will ever happen again.” Stokes hogged strike and went on a six-hitting rampage, only to twice go close to handing Australia a one-run victory in Nathan Lyon’s final over of the drama-laden contest.

But Leach held firm before Stokes, the batting hero of England’s World Cup final triumph, hit the winning runs by flaying paceman Pat Cummins for a four that saw the all-rounder finish on 135 not out.

This was England’s highest successful fourth-innings chase and the tenth highest in Test history.
