Dhoni praises England’s performance, says they are the best team in the world
Dwayne Bravo and David Warner bowled out for the fifth wicket, with Angelo Mathews batting the fourth.
The third wicket was not as easy for England as the first, as England were bowled for an unbeaten 6 for 42.
The second wicket went for the fourth wicket and it was England’s best bowling display since the series opener against Pakistan in June.
England had won the first two Tests of the series by the final over, but the final four wickets went for just three runs each, and they bowled six straight overs without scoring a wicket.
Their bowling had improved in the second innings, as they bowlled for just two runs each in their first innings, and that had been enough to take the series.
“It was a great day.
We played some good cricket,” said England captain, Joe Root.
“It was good to see the batsmen do their job and they’ve done it with the ball.”
The visitors had been chasing a century and a Test lead, but were bowling out for just eight runs in their third innings.
After a quick start, England were unable to find a rhythm and eventually collapsed for the first time in four Tests.
They finished with five wickets, but could not get it out.
Australia had been beaten by England in the last Test at Lord’s, but lost by just four runs.
A three-run partnership between Matt Prior and Josh Hazlewood led England to a two-wicket victory, and was the best partnership England have had against Australia in three Test series.
