Play report

Earlier, England who conceded 26 runs lead in the first innings ended their second innings with only 195 runs on the board.

All the English batsmen except skipper Joe Root (51) failed to combat the Aussie bowling attack. Moeen Ali (40) and Johnny Bairstow (42) too gave valuable contributions to the visitors. Star batsman Alastair Cook (7), James Vince (2), and Dawid Malan (4) failed to contribute well for the English side.

It was the Aussie pace bowlers who shattered the English batting side in the second innings. Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood, and Nathan Lyon picked three wickets each, while Pat Cummins grabbed the tail-end wicket of Jake Ball.

Mitchell Starc had picked three wickets in the first innings too, making his overall haul five.

What to expect from the fifth day?

If a miracle does not happen, Australia will easily win the match before the morning tea session. For the Aussies, David Warner is batting as if its a T20 match. If the left-handed batsman maintains the same rhythm day five, then the match will be over within the first ten overs.

England is not expecting any miracles on Monday, as they have already lost control over this match. Joe Root and his boys will be now looking forward to seeking vengeance as they play the second game in Adelaide next week.
