Australian players acknowledge their supporters gathered in the stands at Edgbaston. David Warner, Steve Smith and Cameron Bancroft, who returned to Test cricket after their bans for their roles in the Cape Town ball-tampering scandal, were jeered by the home crowd for a majority of the Test. Smith made centuries in both the innings of a Test for the first time, while Bancroft and Warner failed in both the innings. Photo: Getty Images

Nathan Lyon's dismissal of Joe Root was a crucial point in the Test. The England captain had made a half-century in the first innings and had been comfortable playing Lyon's off-spin on a turning fifth-day pitch before he was caught at forward short leg defending off the frontfoot.

Steve Smith's second-innings century, to go with his hundred in the first, helped Australia fight back from difficult positions in the Test. Smith's 100-run partnerships with Travis Head and Matthew Wade and day four were integral to Australia building a 397-run lead. Smith made 144 in the first innings, helping his team recover from a precarious 122 for eight to 284. Photo: Getty Images

Stuart Broad took five for 86 in the first innings, thereby completing 100 Ashes wickets. He got the wicket of centurion Steve Smith, in addition to dismissing Cameron Bancroft, David Warner, James Pattinson and Tim Paine. Broad, however, took only one wicket in the second innings and England also felt the absence of James Anderson after he pulled his calf on the first morning. Photo: Getty Images
