London - Australia set England a target of 227 to win the fifth Ashes Test after declaring their second innings on 111 for six at tea on Sunday's final day at The Oval.
Australia, desperate for a first win in nine Tests, left England - who'd already retained the Ashes and won the series at 3-0 up - a minimum of 44 overs in which to score their runs.
Michael Clarke, the Australia captain, called a halt when he was 28 not out and Mitchell Starc 13 not out, both batsmen having scored at a run-a-ball as the tourists altered their order in search of quick runs.
Australia sent Shane Watson, fresh from his Test-best 176 in the first
innings, back up to open alongside left-hander David Warner instead of the more
staid Chris Rogers.
