The third Ashes test won by England and level the five-match test series by 1-1 with the two matches spare. But the matches will remember forever to cricket fans. Ben Stokes plays one of the great innings of his Test career to wins the test match for England. After getting all-out on 67 runs in the first inning and chased down the target of 359 runs, it was a remarkable chase from England.
Australia lost the match because they have not captured the key moment. Australian player Nathan Lyon missed an easy run-out chance when England needed just two runs to win. Nathan Lyon never forgets the run-out in his life.

After losing the test match from the winning situation, Australian captain Tim Paine said, “Yeah, it’s hard to take, losing from that position, got to tip your hat sometimes. Played an unbelievable inning and took it away from us. Probably the best Test innings I’ve seen, so well played to Ben. It was, we thought we had enough, bowlers had got us in a position, we’d create enough chances to win the game, but Ben played unbelievably. Joe and Denly kept them in the hunt; overall, it was a terrific Test match.”
“You’re always a bit worried with Ben, he bats with the tail very well, things you can do differently, cricket is a game of inches, and we had a few opportunities. Not the end of the world, one game of cricket and we’ve still got some opportunity to come back in the series. [Defeat affects the team?] If you let it, it can, but you’ve got to play with skill, no emotion. We’ve created enough chances to win two Test matches. We think we’ll be right in the mix for the next two.”
