End of Day 4 play at the England vs Australia first Ashes Test, Trent Bridge! Again, it has been a remarkable one. Australia 174/6, still need 137 to win. England will be the favourites. Obviously, Ian Bell's hundred started it off brilliantly for the hosts but Australia fought back to remove the last four wickets for 19 runs. The visitors then had a great start with Shane Watson and Chris Rogers, who added 84 before former fell lbw to Broad. That opened up the gates and Graeme Swann then picked up Steve Smith and Phil Hughes with some fine display of spin bowling. Joe Root too came into action with Ed Cowan's wicket, whose Test future seems in doldrums as of now. Eventually England ended on top and will fancy their chances going into Day 5. (Day in pics)
