England had resisted yesterday through Joe Root and Dawid Malan's century stand. The pair cut Australia's lead down to 58 thanks to a rock-solid alliance built on patience. But all the hard work was undone on the fourth day's morning as England tumbled rather dramatically to lose 8 for 77 over the first session. Asked to chase down a puny 20, Australia lost Alex Carey, filling in as opener for David Warner who is suffering from a bruised rib, but ticked off the 20-run target to pocket the 1-0 series lead.
