Australia were all out for 253 in their second innnings, with England needing just 62 balls to take the last three wickets. Only Adam Voges, 51, not out, offering any resistance after Starc and Hazelwood both out for ducks before Lyon was the last wicket to fall, bowled for 4 by Mark Wood.

Australia started day three on 7 for 241. The test was over in less that 60 minutes on Saturday morning.
