Stuart Broad gets David Warner for seventh time in Ashes series as Australia stutter in 399 chase

Stuart Broad discounted David??Warner for the seventh time at the show as England decreased Australia at dinner in their bid to get a series-tying draw on day four of the fifth Ashes Test at The Oval.
SCORECARD | AS IT HAPPENED
Warner (11) edged Broad into Rory Burns at slide to end a dreadful show with 95 runs in 10 innings in an average of 9.50 – that the left-hander’s final knock only the next time he reached double figures.
Warner along with Marcus Harris (9) had completed Australia’s greatest opening stand that this summer – a paltry 18 – until Broad sent Harris‘ off stump cartwheeling from round the wicket.
Australia, chasing 399 for success after dismissing England for 329, were then steadied by the usual suspects Steve Smith (18no) and also Marnus Labuschagne (14) – just for Jack Leach to develop into a rescue beyond the latter outside border and have him stumped by Jonny Bairstow.
Leach (9) and Jofra Archer (3) fell inside 20 minutes later England had resumed 313-8 – Archer out caught behind on review after he was shown to get gloved Pat Cummins down the leg-side, and Leach captured off Nathan Lyon (4-69) at mid-on after top-edging a sweep.
Broad swelled England’s total by hammering two sixes away Cummins, prior to his two wickets and one for Leach boosted their hopes of a 2-2 draw.
Smith – that currently has Matthew Wade (10no) for business – stands in their own way, however.
