On breaking the 150 km/h speed barrier Wood added: I don’t know if it’s the fastest, coming down the hill, I thought of Bob Willis. Stocksey was very clear on my role: to play short, sharp throws and give it everything I could. There’s still work to be done.
After England’s win, the score in the five-test series became 2-1, and the caravan will move on to Manchester. Both sides have been going hard at the tail end, and that’s something we’ll have to contend with. I hope so, we’ll see how I feel, but I’ll do my best to be ready, Wood said.
Earlier, Australia managed to break England’s top order, defending 251 points. Mitchell Stark scored five wickets in the second innings, but Harry Brook’s fifty and contributions from Chris Woakes and Mark Wood of the bottom order helped the hosts to a three-wicket victory.
