Cook confirmed that Durham’s Mark Wood, who took four wickets on his Ashes debut as England won the first Test in Cardiff, was likely to be tasked with filling the chasm, having recovered from an ankle problem.
Stuart Broad took two wickets in a sensational first over of the fourth Ashes Test at Trent Bridge to spark an Australia collapse to 21 for five on Thursday.
Middlesex’s Fran Wilson has been added to the England women squad for next week’s Kia Ashes Test at Canterbury.
England is 2-1 ahead in the series and will regain the urn with a victory in Nottingham.
30-year-old Cook said that the way series is poised, anyone scoring big, would get his name etched in history forever.
It is the first time in Rogers’ 24-Test career he has been dismissed for a duck. “He’ll have a last check in the morning but, yes, we’ve got everyone to select from”.
Meanwhile Clarke, who has managed just 94 runs in six innings so far this series, was well aware of what was at stake for him and some of his team-mates as well.
“I’ve had this a number of times throughout my career”.
To question me on my hunger kills me, it absolutely kills me, because I pride myself on trying to get better every single day. “Chris Rogers waited until 35 years of age to play his second Test. I’m 34 not 37 and I want to keep playing for Australia beyond this series, however I will be judged on performance like everyone else”.
“At Trent Bridge, it’s also a lot about the overhead conditions – because, unless the whole game is played under blue sky, I expect that the ball will swing”.
