The Ashes 2017 - 2018

Post by Username Taken » Sun Nov 26, 2017 2:34 pm

After a good start by England it's looking like a win coming up for the Aussies on Day 4 of the 1st Test at the Gabba.

About 30 minutes of play remaining for today.

The English choked and I’m a kiwi I know all about choking. There is no way they should have let Aussie away with this after the first innings.

Years ago they would show the whole test on TV, I remember watching the 5 day between India and Pakistan maybe 13 years ago?

Same with the rugby.

Both gone now, sadly.

First Ashes Test, Gabba, Brisbane (day four of five)
England 302 & 195: Root 51, Hazlewood 3-46, Starc 3-51, Lyon 3-67
Australia 328 & 114-0: Warner 60, Bancroft 51
Australia trail by 55 runs
Scorecard
England are on the verge of losing the first Ashes Test after Australia dominated the fourth day in Brisbane.
Needing 170 to win, the home side require only 56 more on Monday, reaching the close on 114-0, with David Warner 60 not out and Cameron Bancroft unbeaten on 51.
Such a modest target was the result of the good work of their bowlers, who dismissed England for 195.

The tourists had opportunities to set Australia a more challenging chase, but Joe Root (51), Jonny Bairstow (42) and Moeen Ali (40) failed to make telling contributions following good starts.

After Moeen was controversially stumped off the bowling of Nathan Lyon, England's tail was blown away by vicious fast bowling from Mitchell Starc and Pat Cummins.

Then, any hope that the visitors could make Australia uncomfortable was withdrawn by Warner and Bancroft, who blunted the new ball and punished the bowling later in their innings to raise the chances of a four-day finish.

They ran out of time, but on Monday Australia will go 1-0 up in their quest to regain the Ashes and preserve an unbeaten record at the Gabba that stretches back to 1988.

0/173 the highest opening stand in an Ashes Test for Australia since Justin Langer and Matthew Hayden combined for 185 at The Oval in 2005.
