Trott heroics keep England alive

Shane Watson's half-century gave Australia a chance of overhauling England's 299, but his team-mates needed to fire as they reached 4 for 118 after 25 overs

Australia lead the series 3-1. Today's result has been great for the series. Three dead rubbers would have been too many in a series that already has one match too many. Peter English's bulletin has been updated. It definitely wasn't Australia's Day.

The next game is at the Gabba on January 30. Join us then. Cheers!

Tremlett to Lee, FOUR runs, Lee makes room, and flays the ball over extra cover. Four runs but it's all futile now

Tremlett to Smith, 1 run, another one in the blockhole, driven to cover
49.2

Tremlett to Smith, FOUR runs, Tremlett's yorker gets squeezed out by Smith, steering it past Prior for four
