Ian Bell delighted a capacity crowd at his Edgbaston home ground with a sparkling unbeaten fifty as England defeated Australia by eight wickets to win the third Test and go 2-1 up in the five-match series.
England, chasing 121 to win, finished on 124-2 in the middle session of the third day, propelled by Ian Bell's second half-century of the Test.
Bell, promoted to number three after his place was called into question following a run of low scores, was 65 not out.
Earlier, Australia was all out for 265 in their second innings just before lunch, with fast bowler Steven Finn taking 6 for 79 and the man of the match award in his first Test in more than two years.
Peter Nevill and Mitchell Starc led Australia's late-order resistance on 59 and 58 respectively as England began to worry.
England's win in front of a raucous, national anthem-singing crowd of around 25,000 continued an unpredictable series. England won the first Test in Cardiff in four days, lost the second at Lord's also in four days, followed by this even quicker three-day victory.
As holders, Australia keep the Ashes in the event of a series draw but Clarke said he still wanted to win the series.
