The Ashes - 4th Test

Australia v England

England won by an innings and 157 runs

Overs 0-50


Tremlett to Hughes, FOUR, shot! Good stuff from Hughes, I think this is how he has to play, gets a fraction of width and smashes past point for four

Australia 4/0   PJ Hughes 4* (2b 1x4)   CT Tremlett 0.2-0-4-0


Tremlett to Hughes, FOUR, four more! What a start this is. Tremlett floats up a fuller ball and Hughes climbs all over it, thrashing through the covers for another boundary

Australia 10/0   PJ Hughes 10* (4b 2x4)   CT Tremlett 0.4-0-10-0


Anderson to Ponting, FOUR, that's an even better sign! Really good shot this, Anderson was only a fraction short and Ponting eased into a classic Ponting pull shot, in front of square for four

Australia 33/1   RT Ponting 6* (34b 1x4)   JM Anderson 6.4-2-15-0


Anderson to Ponting, FOUR, short again, pulled again, four again! Fantastic stuff from Ponting, he's earned a big cheer from the crowd and rightly so, Anderson only a touch short and Ponting was all over him

Australia 37/1   RT Ponting 10* (36b 2x4)   JM Anderson 7-2-19-0


Tremlett to Hussey, FOUR, it appears not! Tremlett dishes up a gift on off stump, and Hussey drives a long half-volley to the extra cover boundary. He looks in good touch

Australia 43/3   MEK Hussey 5* (12b 1x4)   CT Tremlett 6.5-3-21-2


Bresnan to Clarke, FOUR, in the air, but in the gap between slip and gully! That flew off the bat as he threw himself into a cut, and went fast and possibly too high to be caught anyway. Either way, it brings up Australia's 50

Australia 53/3   MJ Clarke 8* (18b 1x4)   TT Bresnan 5-2-9-1


Bresnan to Clarke, FOUR, shot! Full on middle and off, and Clarke leans into a cracking straight drive

Australia 57/3   MJ Clarke 12* (19b 2x4)   TT Bresnan 5.1-2-13-1


Anderson to Haddin, FOUR, edged straight away, but Haddin gets four, big gap between second slip and gully and this runs along the ground straight through it to the third man rope

Australia 70/5   BJ Haddin 4* (1b 1x4)   JM Anderson 9.4-3-28-2


Bresnan to Siddle, FOUR, rare bad ball from Bresnan and Siddle takes full toll, nothing expansive, just a leg-stump line tickled down to fine leg for four

Australia 82/8   PM Siddle 5* (4b 1x4)   TT Bresnan 12.2-6-25-2


Anderson to Harris, FOUR, four for Harris, I'm not sure he knew much about it, just swished across the line, got a top edge that sailed over the slips down to the third man rope

Australia 86/8   RJ Harris 4* (4b 1x4)   JM Anderson 13.1-4-35-4


Anderson to Harris, FOUR, good shot there, the ball was there to be hit - short and wide - but Harris didn't try to make too much of hit, just getting himself into a good, balanced position on the back foot and scything a cut through gully

Australia 96/9   RJ Harris 8* (19b 2x4)   JM Anderson 15.2-4-42-4
Overs 0-50
