That's all for this live text on the Boxing Day Test.
A real shame how it ended. It was nicely poised after three engrossing days but the rain yesterday and the lifelessness of the pitch today somewhat spoiled it.
All credit to Steve Smith for another masterful knock, of course, and a big hand to Alastair Cook for his sublime 244 not out in England's innings.
On we go to Sydney, which will start in the evening of 3 January UK time.
Catch you all then and thanks for reading.
