He was out for 24, and Emburey had made an excellent 36 not out, England finishing on 359 all out. Botham and then Hemmings were brought in to bowl, but were equally ineffective.

The morning session was all Australia's, who soon went past England's total in a very one-sided session.

The innings was to remain his all-time test best. He and Taylor breezed the Australian total past 350, Taylor bringing up his 150 in the process.

Captain Allan Border may have fancied his chances of dismissing England cheaply twice, but the remaining time made the prospect seem unlikely. Man of the match: Dean Jones, IT Botham 46 Allan Border would have still held out a faint hope of victory on the morning of day five, but it seemed unlikely. Dean Jones resumed not out on 101 and, although the Australians lost Merv Hughes cheaply, Jones and Trevor Hohns (40) put on 92 for the seventh wicket. Hemmings likewise provided good support for Smith, chiming in with a useful 38, and helping Smith take the England total past 200 before he was spectacularly clean-bowled by Alderman. Alderman finished the English first innings with 5 for 69. in March 2014. He and wicket-keeper Jack Russell put on 96 for the sixth wicket to stabalise England's innings.

Terry Alderman was once again the pick of Australia's bowlers with 6 for 128, his career best innings figures and taking his tally for series so far to 19 in the first two tests, a remarkable 9 of which were LBW dismissals. Openers Marsh and Taylor again got the tourists off to a solid start, but their heroics of the fifth test were not to be repeated, as Marsh was caught by debutant Igglesden off Galdstone Small for 17, the opening stand worth 48. Boon ended on 58 not out, and Waugh, 21 not out, was yet to be dismissed in the series. Curtis added 6 and there was to be no heroics from Smith in the second innings, out for 26 to leave England at 67 for 3. Australia then wobbled, Allan Border out for 1, and Dean Jones out for a fourth ball duck, before ever reliable Steve Waugh joined David Boon, and the pair added the remaining 50 runs required for victory, the winning runs brought up by David Boon, who memorably swept Paul Jarvis to the square leg boundary for four to win. Kim Barnett was on the receiving end of some intimidating bowling from Merv Hughes, and the tactic paid off when Boon caught him at bat pad trying to fend a short ball away. RA Smith 143 Rain again intervened, but despite the interruptions the Australian bowlers made every effort to squeeze victory out of the shortened match, reducing England to 143 for 5, despite a well made 77 to Robin Smith, when play was eventually abandoned and the match ended in a draw.

His replacement Neil Foster batted for over half an hour in making 6, a clear sign England's hopes lay in batting out the day. Alderman finally trapped Jarivs LBW with what was fast becoming his trademark of the series, the inswinging yorker, but England had struggled to 242, which although a disappointing score, had dragged out their innings long enough to avoid the follow-on and not leave the Australians with enough time for victory. Merv Hughes had claimed 4 for 71, and Terry Alderman took 3 for 60. Australia's unchanged opening pair Mark Taylor and Geoff Marsh emerged looking typically aggressive and soon were also looking untroubled by England's blunt bowling attack. In contrast, the one-sided nature of the series led to David Gower standing down as captain, and saw him replaced with Graham Gooch prior to the next series against the West Indies in the Caribbean. Gatting went during the morning session for 22, but then Gower and new partner Robin Smith put on 139 for the fifth wicket to rescue England's innings.

As was so often the case during 1989, when the Australians batted, the clouds disappeared and the pitches were largely good. England made two more changes, the introduction of debutants Alan Igglesden and John Stephenson, but the picks seemed more likely to have come from the chance to expose them to the top level rather than hope that they might prove competitive against a clearly superior Australian side.

England began day two in the hope that Robin Smith could go on to a big score, and the tail would be there to provide support. Rain had again seemingly denied Australia victory in a match they thoroughly dominated.
