Cummins to Woakes, OUT, short but with pace off, and Woakes can only steer it limply to slip! Done by the slower bouncer, contorting into all sorts of positions but in the end popping a simple catch up off the splice... All of which means, Australia win by 251 runs, exorcising their Birmingham hoodoo in style!

CR Woakes c Smith b Cummins 37 (67m 54b 7x4 0x6) SR: 68.51

Lyon to Broad, OUT, gone, first-baller for Broad! Six for Garry! Flighted, turning on the stumps, Broad lunges at it and a fat edge plops into the hands of slip

SCJ Broad c Smith b Lyon 0 (2m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Lyon to Ali, OUT, gottim, Lyon gobbles up mo mo Mo! Ninth time in Tests, so bunny it's not funny. Lyon bags his fifth and Australia are just a quick two-step away. Big spin from middle and leg, thick-edged propping forwards and snaffled at gully

MM Ali c Warner b Lyon 4 (46m 28b 0x4 0x6) SR: 14.28

Lyon to Stokes, OUT, edged, gone, England are a rabble! Sizzling spin and bounce, dipping on off stump, biting the pitch, snicking the edge, a gleeful grab from Paine, and one ball after Cummins reached his 100th Test wicket, Lyon trumps him with his 350th!

BA Stokes c †Paine b Lyon 6 (36m 28b 1x4 0x6) SR: 21.42

Cummins to Bairstow, OUT, short again, and that's been given in the slips! Surely another shocker, that must have come off Bairstow's body?... but... hang on, has it flicked the webbing of the glove? Joel Wilson has been vindicated! Bairstow reviewed, thinking that had come off his wrist onto midriff, and away to third slip ... but a ripple of fabric proves otherwise!

JM Bairstow c Bancroft b Cummins 6 (20m 8b 1x4 0x6) SR: 75.00

W
Cummins to Buttler, OUT, bowled him! Oh wow, that's the line, but this time just a fraction shorter, Buttler caught in no-man's land when he should have been on the front foot again, and the off stump has been splattered! A huge, huge blow straight after lunch... who's going to hang around now?

JC Buttler b Cummins 1 (32m 25b 0x4 0x6) SR: 4.00

W
Lyon to Root, OUT, jammed off the inside edge, snagged by Bancroft under the helmet! No need to review those! Root punches his bat in anguish, as Australia's players engage in a victory waltz behind him! What a huge wicket that is... Ball turning in as Root pushed in front of his pad, squirted off the bat, right into the waiting paws!

JE Root c Bancroft b Lyon 28 (97m 57b 3x4 0x6) SR: 49.12

W
Lyon to Denly, OUT, spinning, loops up of the front pad, taken at short leg! Aleem Dar gives it but Denly decides to review after consultation with his partner. He seemed to be saying he didn't feel any contact, but UltraEdge offers a different view! Clear ripple on the snickometer as the ball passed the inside shoulder of the bat. Lyon sinks his teeth into England again!

JL Denly c Bancroft b Lyon 11 (19m 16b 2x4 0x6) SR: 68.75

21.2
W
Lyon to Roy, OUT, oh my word... Bowled on the charge! Lyon has his first and Roy is sent packing after making a complete misjudgment of which ball to attack! Maybe the ODI mindset was the problem... Gallumphed down and aimed a mighty heave over the leg side but he was nowhere near the pitch, left a massive gap for the ball to turn through; and then turned on his heel abruptly to leave the field, as if realising his mistake

JJ Roy b Lyon 28 (105m 58b 4x4 0x6) SR: 48.27

W
Cummins to Burns, OUT, pops off the glove, loops to gully! Indecision on the back foot, or halfway back, as his first movement was onto the front foot, Cummins finds some extra zip off the deck, slams the gloves, and Australia have their opening, a simple take with fingers cupped to the sky!

RJ Burns c Lyon b Cummins 11 (43m 33b 1x4 0x6) SR: 33.33
