England beat Australia by 135 runs to level series 2-2, 1st drawn Ashes series in 47 years
In the 5th and final Ashes Test, England beat Australia by 135 runs to level the series 2-2. This is the first drawn Ashes series since 1972. Although Australia will retain the urn. Australia was chasing 399 to win and their trouble increases after Steve Smith got out cheaply at 23, which is his first below 50 score in this series. With this defeat Australia's hope to seal first Ashes series win in England since 2001 also faded.
