233 & 227



This is it people, the day of days for England, The Ashes are theoretically on the line and what a day of Test cricket we have for you

I'm Chris Rolfe and I'll be with you for the first session, Joe Root has a chance to write himself into English folklore and become the biggest hero since Freddie in 2005

The momentum has been totally with England since the night session on day 3 when Jimmy Anderson and Chris Woakes started working their magic with the swinging ball, at a time when victory seemed like a distance dream for all Englishmen

Now "just" 178 runs are required with 6 wickets in hand, skipper Root and Chris Woakes at the crease looking to keep the momentum firmly with England, Moeen, Bairstow and Overton still to bat, It's more than doable

16 minutes until start of play and I'll be back for the first ball

Here come Root and Woakes, Woakes to face the first ball from Josh Hazlewood, here we go people

Solid defensive from Woakes to get us going, Hazlewood with a little bit of swing

WICKET!!!!! Woakes is gone, caught behind, he's reviewed it though


Nothing on hot spot, didn't look like any contact on the slow mo replay
