England has retained the Ashes in emphatic fashion by completing an innings and 157-run win over Australia on Wednesday's fourth day of the fourth test.
England retained the Ashes for the first time on Australian soil since 1986-87. It travels to the final test in Sydney starting Sunday with a 2-1 series lead, but as the Ashes-holder, England needs only to draw the series to keep the urn.
Tim Bresnan claimed the final wicket and his fourth of the innings when Ben Hilfenhaus was caught behind for a duck to dismiss Australia for 258. Last batsman Ryan Harris could not bat due to a foot injury.
Brad Haddin and Peter Siddle shared an 86-run eighth-inning partnership, but that only delayed the inevitable. Haddin ended the match on an unbeaten 55.
