Root's exit saw Haddin complete his 29th dismissal of the five-match series, surpassing the mark of 28 set by Australia wicketkeeping great Rodney Marsh, now a selector, against England during the 1982/83 Ashes in Australia. In both cases, all the dismissals were caught.

England and Australia drew the fifth Test as the Ashes series ended in a dramatic draw on the final day at The Oval on Sunday.

England, set a target of 227 to win after Australia captain Michael Clarke's bold declaration, needed 21 more to win off 24 balls with five wickets left when the umpires decided the light, even with the floodlights on, was too dark to continue and ended the match at 7.35pm local time.
The draw meant England, who'd already retained the Ashes, finished the five-match contest as 3-0 winners having triumphed in three successive Test series against Australia for the first time since the 1950s.
