The Ashes: Broad & Leach Secure Series-Levelling Win Despite Defiant Wade

England 294 (Buttler 70, Root 57, Marsh 5-46) and 329 (Denly 94, Stokes 67, Lyon 4-69) beat Australia 225 (Smith 80, Archer 6-62) and 263 (Wade 117, Leach 4-49, Broad 4-62) by 135 runs

Matthew Wade attempted to do to England what Ben Stokes had done to Australia a couple of Tests back.

It was a fightback that kept Australia hoping after England finally managed to find an early solution to their long-lasting Steve Smith problem.

But Wade's 117 eventually went in vain as Stuart Broad and Jack Leach's combined tally of eight wickets helped England to a 135-run win as the Ashes ended in a draw for the first time since 1972.
