Steve Smith has nailed the second last nail in England’s coffin as he had Jack Leach edging to first slip with the last ball of his over. The umpires had decided against the operation of fast bowlers with the light getting dimmer in Sydney, but Australia need not have worried as Steve Smith snared the penultimate wicket to bring about a twist in the tale. It is Test cricket at its bewitching best as Australia find themselves a solitary wicket away from glory. Can Stuart Broad and James Anderson keep the hosts at bay? Two results possible still.
