England crushed Australia by 135 runs in the fifth and final Ashes Test on Sunday to level the series at 2-2, ending their historic World Cup-winning season on a high. Ever since the start of this century, both England and Australia have managed to win the urn five times each.

Australia retained the urn as holder, however they missed an opportunity to have first outright series win in England in 18 years after being dismissed for 263 in its second innings in the evening session at Day 4 on Sunday.

Australia had won the fourth test at Old Trafford by 185 runs. Steve Smith and Jack Leach down played the spectacle controversy after the final match at the Oval in London.

Smith, who scored an astonishing 774 runs in just seven innings, was out for a score of less than fifty for the first time in the series.

Four months on from his worldwide debut, Archer has already played a starring role in England's historic World Cup win, leading the team's wicket charts and bowling the decisive super over in the Lord's final, and excelled in the pressure cooker of the Ashes.

They were helped by Australia's decision to field first, odd team selection and dropped catches, but also earned this win through the batting of Joe Denly and Jos Buttler, and a collectively incisive bowling attack.

"Every game means something regardless", he said. Also, this is the first time men's Ashes series ended in a draw since 1972.

His run haul put him fifth on the list of highest tallies in an Ashes series behind Don Bradman's two entries, England's Wally Hammond and former Australia skipper Mark Taylor.

He had already removed Marcus Harris' off stump with a wonderful delivery before he turned his attention to Warner, the man he has tortured all summer. The incident took place on the third day of the final Test match.

The crucial moment, though, was the removal of Smith. England's 294 was traded off by a measly 225 by Australia in the first innings.

"It hasn't all been plain sailing because we had to dig ourselves out of a hole in the World Cup and then we had to scrap until the very last to get that trophy, but we got it".

Even as he was approaching the century, Wade was discomforted in a thrilling spell where Archer touched 95mph and, after he passed three figures, the left-hander threw caution to the wind.

It does not take much for Root to reveal his primary ambition, though, to finally lead his country to victory against their biggest rivals.

In the next over, Nathan Lyon turned Leach to square leg and, from the next ball, Root's catch at mid-wicket gave Leach 4-49 to go with Broad's 4-62.

"To be captain of a team that's come here and retained the Ashes is something that I'm sure I'll never forget".

"We came to win the Ashes and unfortunately.it is not the fairytale finish we were after".

"With the ball in particular they have been exceptional".

But, most of all, he said that the Oval win was a fitting send-off for England's coach, Trevor Bayliss, who is leaving the role that he took over in the summer of 2015, with the express aim of lifting that elusive World Cup. It is a step in the right direction.

"He'll probably be very relieved (when) he gets on the Qantas flight knowing he doesn't have to face Stuart Broad for a while, I reckon".

England's Ben Stokes, Jonny Bairstow and Joe Root look on during the end of series presentation. "He's still learning and I'm still learning how to get the best out of him as a captain". "I am glad we were able to draw the series". It's mission accomplished, which is fantastic. "We were outplayed and dropped catches".
