W
OUT! L.B.W. Josh Hazlewood to Craig Overton. Seaming in length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, hit pad to. Australia retain The Ashes! Overton is finally dismissed with a seaming in ball by Hazlewood which beats him, he immediately reviews the decision, but he is plum. Australia played really well this test match with bat and ball, Smith with the bat and a great four-man attack with the ball. At the end of the day Australia were under a lot of pressure, failing to get Leach and Overton out, but it was the part-timer to take the crucial wicket of Leach which gave Australia the chance they needed to get the final wicket.

Jack Leach to Tim Paine. Stock ball half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to extra cover for no runs, run save by Roy. Lunch at Old Trafford and Australia have added 75 to their total from the close of play last night, a decent session for both teams this morning with England getting two wickets but with Smith still in runs are not hard to come by. Archer was a lot more hostile today bowling shorter to the Aussies and getting his pace up from yesterday and Leach has looked consistent today which is what England need.

FOUR! Jack Leach to Tim Paine. Stock ball half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past deep extra cover for 4 runs. Paine squeezes the drive through cover for four, he just finds the gap and that's Paine's first boundary of the innings, he needs to keep Smith company and get Australia to a decent score, if he gets out early on, England will feel they can skittle the rest pretty quickly.

Good morning and welcome to day two of the fourth test in the 2019 Ashes Test Series. Day one of the test at Old Trafford saw just below half of the scheduled overs bowled as rain halted play for an extended amount of time. The visitors ended the day on 170 for 3 after a big third wicket partnership between Labuschagne and Smith, Labuschagne was dismissed by a jaffa from Overton, as for Smith, he remains in great nick making 60 before play was halted for the day thanks to rain. England will be looking to target Head in the early stages of today, he hasn't been in great form this series and is their best chance of getting an early breakthrough. Blue skies surround Old Trafford which means we could be in for a full day of play, fingers crossed.
Over 44. 5 runs. Bowler: Craig Overton. Australia: 3-170(rr 3.86)

.
Craig Overton to Travis Head. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot shoulders arms, shoulders arms to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Bairstow. And that ball signals the start of tea, England got a key wicket with Labuschagne getting bowled by a beauty from Overton, but Smith is still there as usual asserting his dominance, if they get him out they will feel they can get the rest out easily as they have done in previous innings, but they don't look like taking his wicket any time soon. We were due to start at 5:50pm local time but when tea was called the rain came, now the rain looks to have stopped 10 minutes after we were due to restart, so hopefully some more overs can be bowled at the end of the day. The umpires have decided to call it a day here in Manchester, play will resume tomorrow after only 44 overs have been bowled. The rain has dominated the day and Australia have fared well with the pitch conditions, Smith and Labuschagne have been instrumental in getting Australia up to a good score so far.

Craig Overton to Marnus Labuschagne. Length ball, middle stump on the back foot glancing, Play and Miss (Leg Side) to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Bairstow. And the end of that over signals lunch, a session with two half's to it as England got two early wickets, Warner and Harris, but after Labuschagne and Smith came in Australia started to get going, the two adding 70 to the total for Australia which puts them in the driving seat in this game. The pitch seems to not be doing as much as in Leeds, which you would think is a blessing for England when they bat, but right now it's Australia that look to be setting England a big total. The covers and coming onto the wicket and outfield as the rain looks to be closing in to Manchester at around 13:25 local time we might see a delay to the start of the next session. And like we predicted, the start of the second session is delayed due to rain, it started at 13:25 local time and hasn't stopped since then, the surrounding area cloud cover looks bleak too. The rain looks to have stopped (14:00 local time) and the umpires are out in the middle inspecting the pitch. 10 minutes later the rain has come back, this time the clouds look darker and the rain more potent, we could be off for a while here. The covers are coming off 40 minutes after the scheduled start to the second session, hopefully the rain stays away for the remainder of the session. The rain had properly started again now (14:30 local time) with heavy winds adding to the poor weather, all the brollies are out in the stands and play looks unlikely to continue until later on. After a really long extended break the covers are finally coming off and the match is scheduled to restart at 4pm local time, tea is now scheduled for 5:30pm.

Another drive from Labuschagne to keep the scoreboard ticking, he is on 49 now, closing in on another half century. Overton should be hitting the deck a bit harder, this ball was too full, from him and Labuschagne in-form won't miss out on this one.

Start of Australia Innings. Welcome to the fourth match in The Ashes test series where things are evenly poised between England and Australia, the series so far is 1-1 with England picking up the historic victory at Headingley last Sunday thanks to the brilliance of Ben Stokes. If Australia would have won that game they would have retained The Ashes so it will be interesting to see how they come back from that agonising defeat, one thing that will boost their morale ahead of this test is the return of Steve Smith, the number one ranked test batsman. As for England, a re-gigged order opening with Denly could be key to their success in this test with him doing well to see off the new ball in the last innings at Headingley. Rain has been in and around the Manchester area today so we might see it play a big role in how this one pans out today but the equation for Australia is simple, win this test, and they retain the Urn.

Buttler gone, the last wicket goes for England as Buttler goes for a wayward drive and gets bowled, this one seamed in a bit which made Buttler miss by a mile, Australia lead by 196 now, you would think another 200 and they will declare and put England under pressure in the last day. You would also expect Warner to go out and bat in one day mode and try get these runs quickly as time is of the essence.

Welcome to the fourth day of the fourth Ashes Test taking place at Old Trafford. The home team are hanging in there after a late surge from Australia with the wickets of Burns, Root and Roy. Now Stokes and Bairstow are at the crease and need 98 runs to avoid the follow-on, that will be the target for England in the next two sessions. With the new ball coming in six overs time you would think Australia will fancy their chances of bowling England out cheaply but these two proved in the last test that they can grind out pressure as look to score runs, hopefully for England they can do that and get to a target where Australia need to bat for a while to set an unrealistic target for England to attain.

Bad light has stopped play just as Australia look to have their tail up with three quick wickets. It's been a mixed day so far for England after getting that hundred partnership they have looked very shaky with Roy going after Burns and Root were dismissed. Some top bowling from Hazlewood and Cummins has really helped Australia maintain control in this game.

Welcome to day three of the fourth Ashes test at Old Trafford where Australia declared at just under 500 and now it's time to see how long England can bat to avoid Australia retaining The Ashes. England are currently 23 for 1 after Denly got caught at short leg, the most realistic result for England is that they get the draw here as Australia have got to a total that hasn't been attained by England all series. The main target today for both sides will be the follow-on. For Australia to make England follow on and for England, to go past that target by some distance. There is expected to be some rain today which should play into England's hands more being the team that want to eat up as much time as possible. It doesn't look good in Manchester right now, the forecast is looking more promising as the day goes on but right now Old Trafford is surrounded by bleak, grey skies. An inspection is going to take place at 1pm local time, at the moment the outfield covers have come off and the ground staff are doing all they can to mop up the rain that has fallen over the past few hours.

Josh Hazlewood to Craig Overton. Short, outside off stump ducked Leave, Left to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Paine. Stumps at Old Trafford on a day that was dominated by Australia and Steve Smith. England finish on 23 for 1 with the wicket of Denly coming from a superb catch by Wade. Overton as the night watchman looked comfortable at the crease Burns going well as well at the other end. Tomorrow we should see more of Hazlewood as he looked good moving the ball off the pitch and finding the right length to make the batters play, England have a lot of work to do to be able to keep tabs on that Aussie score, but with the surface looking decent that shouldn't be the hardest of challenges.

Craig Overton to Mitchell Starc. In-swinging length ball, outside off stump on the front foot Slog, hit pad to leg gully for 1 run, fielded by Bairstow. Australia declare with a lead of 382, England have a day and 30 minutes to knock the total off, with the way this game has gone it looks very unlikely, the most realistic option for England to salvage something would be a draw but even that is unlikely. A good knock from Smith gave Australia some rest bite after a tough start where they were 44 for 4 at one point, England have a big task to stop Australia retaining the Ashes.
