Day Five At Adelaide

Background: England needed to take six wickets to win. Australia needed it to rain

How did it start: With KP having a bowl to Huss and Snorks

Where did it all go wrong for Australia?: The first four days

Where did it all go right for Australia?: The torment ended.

Where did it all go wrong for England?: No Broad - flying home with an Ashes-ending stomach injury

Where did it all go right for England?: They finished off the work of the previous few days and go 1-0 up!

Who won each session?: Morning - England. That was all that was needed.

Who won the day?: England

Crumb of comfort?: There's still three games left for Australia to try and save face

Shot of the day: Doug Bollinger blocking Swann. Harder than it looks. Just ask North.

Ball of the day: Anderson's to Harris. Unplayable.

Man of the day: Swann. Swann tore them apart, again.

And finally... Ashes Oddity: The bloke in the Barmy Army with the inflatable pink flamingo. Sir, I salute you.
