Australia's win at Old Trafford in the fourth Test match saw them retain the Ashes and go 2-1 up in the series ahead of this final Test. That means either misery or joy, depending on which side of the globe you're on. There's still plenty for England to play for, however, as they can draw the series and also clock up vital points in the inaugural Test Championship. Read on to find out the best ways to get an England vs Australia 5th Test live stream.
While the main part of the job is done for Aussies, there's the not insignificant reward of winning full bragging rights over their great rival at stake in London.
The tourists have been the better side throughout the 2019 Ashes and they will be out to ensure they clinch a series that has provided some of the most memorable cricket action of all time. Steve Smith will want to punish England further after his remarkable series to date, while expect no less grit from their formidable seam attack.
England's hopes of salvaging the series aren't helped by fitness doubts over talismanic batsman Ben Stokes who is nursing a shoulder problem.
An even bigger concern will be how they nullify a rampant Smith, who will go down as the series' key player, despite Stokes' heroics in the third Test. Sam Curran and Chris Woakes are brought back into the attack, while Jason Roy makes way after a run of bad scores.
So will it be the men of Joe Root or Tim Paine that take victory at the Oval. You can watch all the action from pretty much anywhere on Earth by following our Ashes 5th Test cricket live stream guide below.
