Do you want the extended or abbreviated explanation?

Short version: Australia wins

Longer version: Each team gets two chances to bat and make as many runs as they can, the team with the highest total wins. If a team thinks they have a high enough total they can 'declare' before getting all bowled out and send the other side in to bat. If the following team scores more than 200 runs less than the first batting side, the first side can opt to send them back in again ie 'follow on'. If five days pass before a result then it is a draw. Keep in mind that the pitch tends to deteriorate over the 5 days and get harder to bat on. This means you may want to declare so that you don't run out of time, but you don't want to require too many runs on the last day.
