Ashes 4th Test Match ENG vs AUS Day 5 Highlights
In Manchester, the 4th Test match between England and Australia ended in a draw due to rain, leading to shattered hopes for the English team. Despite being the favorites on the fourth day, the weather conditions limited play. However, when the game did resume, Australia managed to regain the advantage over England, thanks to Marnus Labuschagne's resilient century and support from Mitch Marsh. As the match reached its conclusion, Australia was trailing by only 61 runs with Cam Green and Marsh still at the crease. Unfortunately, the match was disrupted by rain on the fifth day. Consequently, the 4th Test ended in a draw, resulting in the Australian team, led by Pat Cummins, retaining the Ashes.
