The team from Down Under will next face Sri Lanka in a three-match T20I series whereas England will take on New Zealand in a five-match T20I series and two-match Test series.

Nathan Lyon and Peter Siddle added some runs late in the day, ensuring the team from Down Under goes past the 220-run mark. Both Lyon (25) and Siddle (18) were sent back to the pavilion by Archer. This enabled the pacer to take his wicket tally to six and bundle Australia out for 225.

Australia declared their innings at 494/8 and they were able to scalp one wicket of England before the close of play on day two.Joe Denly was sent back to the pavilion by Pat Cummins restricting England to 23/1 at stumps on day two.

Smith scored centuries in both the innings of the first Test in Ashes and he managed to score 92 in the second Test. He now averages 63.2 in Test cricket.

The 30-year-old Smith has so far scored 378 runs in the ongoing Ashes series between England and Australia. But Kohli will get a chance to better his lead as India gear up to face West Indies in the two-match series.

Smith became the second-fastest to register 24 centuries in the Test format. He had achieved the feat during the first innings of the first Ashes Test. Smith recorded his 24th century in 118th innings, going past Kohli who had achieved the feat in 123 innings.

Along with Nathan Lyon, Smith stitched a 74-run stand, which saw the right-handed Smith bringing up his century. Stuart Broad finally dismissed Smith, giving him a five-wicket haul and ending Australia's innings at 284

He's a proven world-class performer, a fantastic player. It will be interesting to see how it unfolds throughout the series. Last time they came (to the UK in 2015), when the wickets were very good and flat he made it really count and made two very big hundreds (at Lord's and The Oval)

Stokes is also likely to receive knighthood after showcasing a match-winning performance in the final as both candidates for the next UK Prime Minister, Boris Johnson and Jeremy Hunt had expressed their desire to give the player 'knighthood'.

India officially qualifies for the semi-finals by defeating bangladesh by 28 runs. After 40 matches here is the list of top run getters.
