SHOWS: MANCHESTER, ENGLAND, UK (SEPTEMBER 8, 2019) (PA NEWS - ACCESS ALL) 1.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) AUSTRALIA CAPTAIN, TIM PAINE.

SAYING: "Yeah it's exciting, no doubt.

You're gonna see emotion when you get a group of people together that have a common goal and have worked so hard for it for a long time, this has been two years in the planning, maybe more for some people, so to be able to carry it out, over here, under pressure with the crowds and everything that's been coming at us, it's a nice place to come and play cricket but it's bloody difficult, in England, if you're honest, and yeah, again, couldn't be more proud of the way our group have handled everything that's been thrown at them and yeah, I think at the end it's just a bit of raw emotion when you have a little bit of success and particularly on the back end of last week and the last 18 months, we haven't had a lot of success, we haven't had a lot of really happy times and we're starting to get them which is awesome and I think this group really deserves it." 2.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) ENGLAND SKIPPER, JOE ROOT.

SAYING: "Yeah, everyone's hugely disappointed but you find yourself in a situation like today and you learn a lot about your team and a lot about the guys that are around you and I thought everyone showed a lot of courage, a lot of resilience, a lot of character, and everyone should be really proud of how we approached today, I think we'll look back at other points in the game and think maybe we could've been better and most importantly we gotta look forward at the next test match, want to make sure we get something out of this series, I know the Ashes aren't coming home but in terms of the test championship in two, at the end of the cycle, those points could be crucial and, you know, you never want to lose an Ashes series, every game against Australia really matters so picking ourselves up and turning up at the The Oval and putting in a really strong performance to win a game is crucial for this group." STORY: Australia retained the Ashes after beating England by 185 runs at Old Trafford on Sunday (September 8) to take a 2-1 lead in the series with just one test remaining.

England, who resumed the day on 18-2, were bowled out for 197 on the final day with Australia seamer Pat Cummins taking four for 43.

Australia's victory, with 81 balls remaining, was a convincing one but England's spirit cannot be criticised as they fought until the final hour in their attempt to save the test and keep the series alive.

The tourists lead 2-1 going into next week's final test at The Oval where they hope to become the first Australian team to win an Ashes series in England since 2001.

The main early resistance from England came from Joe Denly who made 53 from 123 balls and Jos Buttler, who lasted 111 balls for his 34.

England's hopes of an unlikely escape-act rose when Jack Leach and Craig Overton batted for over an hour giving the crowd belief over a second 'miracle' after the comeback win at Headingley.

But part-time leg spinner Marnus Labuschagne finally removed Leach, with a ball that turned sharply in the rough and was gloved to Matthew Wade at short leg.

Overton batted with sense, stoicism and a strong technique, but he was trapped lbw by Josh Hazlewood to set off the Australian celebrations.
