I'm really not sure this support will help him. "I would not want to be umpire," says Nasser. "Not sure 2011 against India was that much of a collective - even when England scored over 700, two players scored over 50% of the runs, and in the 591 two players scored over 69% of the runs. The length probably wasn't right for the shot. OVER 22: ENG 96/2 (Trott 41* Pietersen 9*) Pietersen clips Faulkner in the air but wide of short midwicket for four. And I very nearly regretted tempting fate thus when he clipped his first ball, from Ryan Harris, this far short of Faulkner at short midwicket. Ballance or Carberry would be added to my squad as an extra bat. Smith screwed the shot and it was an easy catch for Swann. Anyway, I've just been round Felbrigg Hall National Trust and spotted this chap on the wall. So get down to the Oval and start the party England fans... <a href="http://search.twitter.com/search?q=Ashes" target="_blank">#Ashes</a>.</noframe> 1030 What would be your highlight of the series? By Paul Newman for the Daily Mail. He hasn't batted well but he's there to keep wicket, which isn't the most glamorous of jobs, and I have to go a long way back to recall anything as good to watch." I think they need to take an even bigger risk to tempt England: 180 in 60, something like that. OVER 25: ENG 112/2 (Trott 43* Pietersen 23*) Australia offer Pietersen a single on the leg side. He lured Alastair Cook into another prod outside off-stump first time round and stopped KP from winning the match second time round.

Peter Siddle â He demanded respect with a lovely line and length that pulled batsmen forward but was never quite there to drive. That takes the lead to 226, and there are 44 overs remaining. Maybe you just have a pre-series shootout between Bairstow and Taylor, or whoever they pick. <noframe>Twitter: Michael Vaughan - I reckon a 1130 start .. Too fast, too straight, too much. The light is fast becoming an issue, and the possibility of a farcical anti-climax should not be discounted. WICKET! Thanks lads, as a Pom living in Oz, I have come out nine six packs of Coopers Pale Ale to the good! Bell smashed the seventh ball of the over (because of the no-ball) back at Starc, who stopped it with his boot, picked the ball and threw the stumps and Bell dived desperately back towards his ground. He sits alongside Rod Marsh, who was responsible for the demise of 28 Englishmen in 1982-83. ), and poor teams or lacking in confidence teams will find a way to lose. Is something brilliant happening? At the risk of contradicting absolutely everything I've said so far today, this might just be on: Trott flicks a lovely boundary up and over square leg before crunching three more over the two short midwickets. If England win this game, this innings will be a neat little brother to his 158 on this ground in 2005. Rather like fellow newbie Chris Woakes, it's hard to see him as third seamer unless he develops more pace or movement, but he is a useful man to have in a squad and has the heart to build on some already impressive contributions in the one day stuff. And in that series, Bresnan scored 53 not out, 11 and 90." One can't help thinking he's still itching to get the ball through midwicket, but if he can resist, he'll be a real asset to this still fragile batting order. Woakes scampers consecutive twos to keep England ticking along. England need 131 from 132 balls. Mind you, he'd give up all those catches for another 15 runs at Trent Bridge. It was also the day he went from very good to truly great. They have become dependent on one great performance either in an innings (Pietersen at Galle, Headingley and Mumbai) or a series (Cook in India, Bell here). OVER 19: AUS 86-6 (Clarke 15* Starc 1*) Still no sign of Chris Rogers, who has gone the reverse Mark Richardson route in one innings: from opener to No9. This is getting slightly strange; surely Australia don't seriously think they can win this?

Kevin Pietersen â The reticence of his celebration of his first innings 50 (and the contrast with the skunk-haired jubilation of his 150 eight years ago) said much about his opinion of the pitch and his inability to get going. : "Granted Rob that they havenât functioned as a collective for a while, yet the results continue to flow.... and I agree with Tim Holland, and bizarrely, Geoff Boycott (I never thought Iâd see the day!) But it's clever PR nonetheless, especially in view of what has happened over the last few days. 1427 You have to love Michael Clarke. They need 53 from the last eight. Cook times the fourth ball, from Ryan Harris, through midwicket for four and works the final delivery to the same area for another boundary. Are they allowed any flexibility? This time last year the England dressing-room had a complete breakdown in their relationship with Kevin Pietersen. Alastair Cook. (On standby with the Performance Squad, among others: Compton, Woakes, Davies, Rankin, Kerrigan.). That's Haddin's 29th dismissal of the summer, a record for a single Test series. England and Australia wait anxiously for the ultimate cricketing clash of the year. "There's plenty of rattle out there," says Mike Atherton, who has access to the stump cam. Pietersen reinforces that judgement with a spanking drive, again in the air but past the flying Rogers at extra cover. The Ashes Zone - which looked a bit naff on the first day - has been even better than the cricket at times, and the masterclasses have been must-see TV. OVER 118: ENG 251/4 (Bell 29* Woakes 19*) Bell needs 71 runs to become the first man to make four centuries in an Ashes series since Peter Such Sir Donald Bradman in 1930. BAD LIGHT STOPS PLAY. Monday, 6 January 2014. Two balls later he works a nice boundary through midwicket. He thick-edges a good outswinger from Broad all along the floor to gully, and then there's an appeal for caught behind from a very full delivery. We don't have a No6, and the top seven haven't really functioned as a collective since that India series two years ago. It seems Australia will bat to tea - ten more minutes - and then maybe declare. Got one to straighten to nail Trott LBW first time round and was rather gifted another wicket by KP. At this point I think I can answer my own question in over 18. That said, I would love it - love it - if England chased it down as it would put a stop to a campaign against Alastair Cook that is becoming a little unpleasant. The tour leaves in October he has to be shown fit by late September at the latest - with a back stress fracture I have big doubts about this. The law is an ass, not the umpires. That's an interesting move. That was a breezy, enjoyable knock from Prior: 47 from 56, with a nice hint of arrogance. Add 500. England need 61 from 54 balls. Ryan Harris has left the field through injury, with Shane Watson taking over with the ball. Rating: 5. Mitchell Starc is the new batsman. Should Flower go? What do the umpires do?

OVER 119: ENG 256/4 (Bell 29* Woakes 23*) Woakes is struggling against Starc. He bowled all but one of his deliveries to Watson (176) and Steve Smith (138*), so it was a tough baptism. I will head to cloud nine to eat the humblest pie if England do win. OVER 22: AUS 100-6 (Clarke 22* Starc 8*) Starc mows Swann not far short of Pietersen at long off and then blitzes a boundary straight down the ground. Two balls later a vicious delivery from Lyon to Trott hits body and possibly glove before landing safely on the off side. OVER 20: AUS 89-6 (Clarke 17* Starc 2*) Three from Swann's over. I'd argue the batting hasn't been the same since 2011. Because you can't keep a man with his gifts at bay for long, KP's violent assault in the second innings showed what he can do. Anyway, we shall see. In the future, between pangs of conscience over that haircut, those red trousers and those stolen penny sweets, thousands of cricket fans in this country will regret their attitude in the summer of 2013, when England won the Ashes 3-0 and all we did was bitch and moan. He was endearingly proud of his maiden century in his post-play interview â and why not. The chaps on Sky have just informed us that only three sides in Test history have won chasing over 200 at more than five an over - and only one of those three was against the clock, when the fielding side could bowl wide and put as many men as they liked on the boundary. He bowled quickly and used his bouncer well, showing that he'll have plenty of ammunition when the entire nation follows Darren Lehmann's crass rallying call to get after him Down Under. And if, IF they do it, they will travel to Australia to play against a team who have thought they were improving but have been sent to their basket like a whupped dog.". especially if this report about the wonderful Andy Flower stepping down in the winter is true. by Charles Reynolds on Aug 8, 2013 at 9:55 PM.

I'm all for challenging the prevailing wisdom - there's nothing wrong with burying your Coco Pops under curry sauce - but this seems a bit much, no?

They can't make the law up as they go along. Fair? I agree that Stokes is a more realistic option at No6 at Woakes, although I don't think he's ready yet. Alastair Cook is on his way, although this might be a blessing in disguise as it brings Kevin Pietersen to the crease. The pressure may be alleviated for the batsmen as the attack would neuter any opposition run chase...". How good is Ryan Harris? <noframe>Twitter: Tim Bresnan - Can't wait to lift the little urn later. Against that, I suppose the last decade has told us that far more is possible with the bat in Test cricket than we previously thought, so maybe this is winnable. Cook decides not to review; replays show he was right. We think that's the end of the match. Pietersen drives the new bowler Faulkner to reach a stunning half-century from 36 balls, the fastest ever by an England batsman in an Ashes Test. Oh my goodness. Looked much more fluent in the second innings, two decent knocks. OVER 13: ENG 56/1 (Cook 21* Trott 23*) Three from Lyon's over. Shane Watson â He modified his technique by standing a little further towards the offside and presenting the front pad more alongside the line of the ball (rather than on it), allowing him to use his power to swing through the line and not across it.

Australia are brazenly wasting time now. Brad Haddin â He came in and got on with it, timing the ball as well as any on the slowish pitch. It was a bit like, that famous Alec Stewart catch to dismiss Brian Lara in 1995. : Haddin didn't have to dive quite as far, but then unlike Stewart he was going the wrong way. It's been a strange series, hasn't it? England are having some fun with the bat.

OVER 3: AUS 4/0 (Warner 4* Watson 0*) Australia have half their team padded up, including Smith, Faulkner and Haddin.
