England’s Ben Stokes, 2nd right, is congratulated by Mark Wood, right, and teammates after catching Australia’s Adam Voges, bowled by England’s Stuart Broad for 1 run during day one of the fourth Ashes Test cricket match, at Trent Bridge, Nottingham, England.
The visitors, who were shot out for an ignominous 60 in the first innings, reached 241 for seven at stumps on Friday, still needing 90 runs to make England bat again when the umpires called off the day’s play due to fading light. It was a huge first-innings lead of 331,...
Broad described his feelings as he came off the pitch barely one and a half hours after starting the fourth test, after going 2-1 up in the series at Edgbaston. It’s not really a straightforward decision, but there is green grass and the overhead conditions.
Nevill’s maiden Test 50, in just his second innings, occupied 126 balls and kept England waiting longest before Australia were bowled out for 265 just before lunch on day three of the third Investec Test.
Nevill should have been out for 53, brilliantly caught down the leg side by Jos Buttler, but England’s lack of remaining reviews cost Stuart Broad what would have been his 300th Test wicket. “It was a tough week after Lord’s”.
