England’s Stuart Broad Dismisses Alex Carey with last ball Of Test career
England pacer Stuart Broad took the wicket of Alex Carey on the final delivery of his international career to help the home team beat Australia.
At The Oval on Monday, England defeated Australia by 49 runs to win the fifth Test, tying the Ashes series at 2-2. Australia, needing to win by 384 runs, went from 264-3 to 334 all out, with Stuart Broad getting the final two wickets of Todd Murphy and Alex Carey.
The 37-year-old Broad had made his Test debut in 2007. On Saturday, he made a shock announcement he would retire after the match. He took up the attack as he sought to dismiss Warner for the 18th time in Tests.
Australia’s batting line was completely destroyed by England’s Moeen Ali and Chris Woakes at The Oval, resulting in a spectacular collapse that saw them drop to 294-8 at the end of the last session. The players were forced to leave the field due to rain for approximately two hours before returning on 238-3 with Australia, who as the holders had already retained the Ashes at a 2-1 lead.
