Robinson (0) the last man out after a series of poor dismissals. Pope (5) bowled round his legs,, Billings chips  to mid on, root (11) bowled by a ball that kept low. Stokes pulls Starc to deep square leg for 5.

Australian captain Pat Cummins said : “ Pretty crazy. These are the series you have in your diary years out. Winning 4-0 is huge. I am really pumped. Not only the 11 guys playing but the 15 players in the series. It feels like we are really building to something big. To have Cameron Green in his second year grow as a batter and bowler and as well as some younger players- Travis Head, Marcus Harris and Jhye Richardson and some of the stalwarts  and old pros is just brilliant .”

England captain Joe Root: “ It’s been frustrating for us. It’s been really tough tour, We’ve played good cricket in parts but not been able to string a game together. It’s something we have to learn from as a group, from these experiences, and now go away and keep learning. It’s obvious – we need to put more runs on the board. Too often we’ve not given our bowlers enough to work with . We’ve been outplayed and credit to Australia. They deserve to win this series. Sometimes you have to hold your hands up and say a team outplayed us”.
