Australia has gained an unassailable lead and will now look to finish off the series on a high note with another victory. They have been magnificent throughout the series so far, with both bat and ball.
England, on the other hand, managed to avoid a defeat at the SCG by one of the narrowest margins of a wicket. However, England has already lost the series but will not let Australia take another victory. England will look to win at least one match of the series after a horrific performance and give the English fans a little hope for the future.
