They came into Day Four of the Second Ashes Test match hoping to take some quick Australian wickets to keep themselves in the game and that’s exactly what they did.

Resuming on 52/4, Australia lost their final six wickets for just 86 runs, meaning they were all out for 138, a lead of 353.

In response, England ended the day on 176/4, needing 178 more runs to pull of what would be one of the biggest victories in Ashes cricket history.

Whilst the odds are still in Australia’s favour, England have given themselves a sniff of victory and have battled so hard.

Here’s how the players performed on an exciting Day Four:
