See how play finished up as the Three Lions show some fight at the WACA.
England are far from out of the woods, but their lower-order did show some fight against Australia late on day four of the third Test of the series.
Needing a miracle just to save Ashes and draw the Test. Ben Stokes showed why he is considered an all-rounder of the future, scoring a valuable 72 not out.
