OVER 11: AUS 44/1 (Watson 26* Faulkner 4*) Watson, who can go from 0-1mph in 60 seconds, lumbers through for a quick single and survives only because the throw misses the stumps. WIth Broad and Swann, you would pretty much bat to nine even if you play Tremlett.". In other news, the little genius Sarah Taylor has taken an outrageous catch in the Ashes match at Hove, anticipating a reverse sweep and then diving a long way to her right to take it one-handed. That sounsd a bit patronising, doesn't it? He was endearingly proud of his maiden century in his post-play interview – and why not. At 24, he showed the potential to play the role of fourth seamer, but how often will England want that balance to their side? He ended the series having biffed 126 handy runs at almost a run a ball; those runs may be more crucial in the return series. They currently lead by 164, with 53 overs remaining. England need 115 from 114 balls. The Very Last Word. You can't summon goodwill at, er, will. "Favourite Ashes moment is a no-brainer - Stubro's amazing bowling at Durham.

"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. It's one of the worst reviews in history, because Trott missed the ball by a mile. Match has reached at a very interesting stage. 25th August, 2013. Shane Warne's breakthrough game at Colombo in 1992 is the closest I can think of off the top of my fuzzy head. Rating: 5. OVER 10: ENG 43/1 (Cook 16* Trott 15*) Trott hooks Siddle in the air but well wide of leg gully for four. A high full toss from Starc - a no-ball - is sliced for four by Woakes. That was a breezy, enjoyable knock from Prior: 47 from 56, with a nice hint of arrogance. OVER 121: ENG 267/4 (Bell 40* Woakes 23*) In reference to Adam Ford's email below, can you think of any Test matches in which an entire XI has fired? The one constant was that at least three England players had great matches every time. OVER 12: ENG 53/1 (Cook 20* Trott 21*) That's a nice stroke from Trott, a crisp clip for four off Siddle. That's a surprise: you thought they might promote Prior or even Swann. Smith screwed the shot and it was an easy catch for Swann. Add 500. <noframe>Twitter: Jonathan Agnew - If the ICC still fail to see what a stupid bad light rule they have introduced, they never will. Day 5 - Sunshine After The Rain. I genuinely don't know what's going off out there. Pietersen's storming innings comes to an end. OVER 139: ENG 363/8 (Swann 25* Anderson 0*) That was the last ball of the over. A leg-bye from the over continues Australia's flying start. "227 isn't a bad score in an ODI, but on a fifth-day wicket, with no fielding and bowling restrictions?

With the help of Numerology, we are predicting the fifth match of the Ashes 2013. Passed fifty for the first time since Lord's in the first innings. Jimmy Anderson: "I don't think we'll be leaving the dressing-room for quite some time. Three from the over. He will be the key man for Australia if this goes to the wire. There is a reason so many England fans have felt unsettled and confused for much of this series, and why today, the day England lift the urn, will be relatively underwhelming. Live commentary of the fifth 2013 Investec Ashes Test between England and Australia at The Oval. It hit him in line and would have hit leg stump. This is outrageous stuff from Pietersen. 1001 The weather. The match has converted from a Test to a limited over format. Jonathan Trott – Like Alastair Cook, he's enduring a curious summer. It was a routine wicket, with Anderson edging a big drive at Faulkner. If Australia do want to win they have to declare very soon. Stuart Broad – As so often this series, his first innings figures belied his hostility and craft with the ball, offset a little by cheap second-innings scalps. FOW 206/5. There have also been very few times in the Flower era when England have missed having a fifth bowler. 23rd Aug 2013 4:25pm | By Editor. OVER 120: ENG 263/4 (Bell 36* Woakes 23*) Bell drives Harris sweetly through mid-off for his first boundary of the day. Haddin goes for a golden duck. At the moment I'd say the batting is our weak point, not the bowling, so I'd be loath to weaken it further. Clarke reviews the decision. Prior continues to play his strokes, clipping two through midwicket - that means England have sucked the last bit of life out of the match avoided the follow-on - and then slashing an uppercut over the cordon for four. It was a stumping chance, technically, but a nigh-on impossible one. Keep up with us, while we predict all the matches of Ashes series. Watson drives him over long-on for a huge six, smears four more through midwicket and then gets a leading edge over the slip cordon for another boundary. Also brings to the party a left-armed quickie which could be extremely useful in Oz conditions.". That's a lovely moment of individual success for a consummate team man, who might have thought his Test career was over a few months ago. He has dismissed Prior nine times in Tests, more than twice as often as any other bowler. He looks in the mood to be the hero. Bye! Kept his head when KP and Trott were taking the game away from Australia on Sunday evening. Later in the over he is beaten, trying to cut a ball that keeps a touch low and cramps him for room. OVER 142: ENG 376/9 (Swann 34* Kerrigan 0*) Swann inside-edges an increasingly exasperated Siddle for four and pulls the next ball witheringly to the fence. I'm really not sure this support will help him. "He's prepared to lose to win". It was also the day he went from very good to truly great. Disingenuous poppycock. Brad Haddin takes a stunning catch to get rid of Ian Bell and give James Faulkner his first Test wicket. OVER 122: ENG 269/5 (Bell 40* Prior 0*) The new batsman is Matt Prior, who needs a score after making just 86 runs in the series. OVER 8: AUS 34/0 (Warner 12* Watson 21*) Warner is smacked on the back by a good short ball from Broad. With a little more help at the other end, he might have ended up with more than his five wickets, but would probably have settled for that after some lacklustre performances since his huge effort at Trent Bridge. Clarke is nosing around, waving his hands and shouting the odds. The umpires are inspecting this very same moment. Team England's reintegration into the loving bosom of Mother Cricket starts in Australia in November. Trott crunches Lyon sweetly through the covers for three, and then Cook cuts four to make it ten from the over! There's also a reason the England squad are unhappy about the whole thing, reduced to posting passive-aggressive tweets that only serve to highlight the weirdness of the situation. OVER 3: ENG 16/0 (Cook 9* Root 6*) England have started pretty positively, certainly compared to recent innings. 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. Having played well in three consecutive losing Ashes series, he probably deserves it. What do you do with Kerrigan? "In this situation there must be some comon sense." He always smiles. OVER 20: AUS 89-6 (Clarke 17* Starc 2*) Three from Swann's over. Mind you, Harris certainly deserves to put his feet up for the rest of the day. I wholeheartedly salute Cook and his England team for the fantastic way they have not only won, but failed to lose a Test this series. We are back in the Ashes Zone now, with Andrew Strauss, Nasser Hussain and Mike Atherton picking their squad to tour Australia. Glad I've not paid - urn aloft or no.". As we know, England's batting been hugely dependent on Ian Bell in this series, and he reminds us of that with an imperious cover drive for four off the bowling of Starc. Pietersen, on the run, chips a couple over midwicket. Not least because it's not going to last forever, especially if this report about the wonderful Andy Flower stepping down in the winter is true. It just does not happen. He has 14 from seven balls. He will relish the ball coming on to the bat – as it surely will in Brisbane in just three months' time (where he will bring up a century of Tests). Ryan Harris has left the field through injury, with Shane Watson taking over with the ball. If Clarke was serious about England chasing, then he should have left them 200 off 50 or more.". <noframe>Twitter: Michael Vaughan - England haven't past 400 this summer once yet will have won 5 in 7 Test Matches..Tells me they have a very very good bowling unit.. <a href="http://search.twitter.com/search?q=Ashes" target="_blank">#Ashes</a></noframe> Amid all the hitting and giggling, Faulkner has picked up three wickets, and he almost adds a fourth when Swann smears all around an excellent slower ball. Watson spears his third delivery down the leg side; a wide in one-day cricket but not necessarily in Tests - it depends whether he umpire thinks it's a deliberately negative tactic. We are now at the stage where England should win this match, a quite absurd scenario given the state of play this morning. Bell slices the new bowler Starc over backward point for two; Peter Siddle didn't see the ball at all. That would be an interesting test for them actually, given all the moralising about England's timewasting. Bell is surprised by a short one from Faulkner and lifts it high in the air behind square on the leg side. OVER 134: ENG 315/6 (Prior 30* Broad 9*) Nathan Lyon comes into the attack, replacing Peter Siddle, and beats Broad with a beauty. I really hope he gets a hundred today. But, as with all the England bats throughout the series (excluding Ian Bell is his annus mirabilis), much of the credit goes to the Australian bowlers, who have the imagination to come up with plans and the skills to execute them. OVER 131: ENG 308/6 (Prior 29* Broad 5*) Broad gets off the mark with a lovely back-foot drive for four off Faulkner. England need 142 from 26 overs. Unlike contemporary Philip Hughes, he has always looked more likely to score runs consistently and, now the head is still at the point of contact, he's beginning to use his dead fish eye to smack the ball out of the middle of the bat. It's his 27th dismissal of the series, one short of the world record, and Bell ends a career-defining series with 545 runs at 68.12. It formed part of the 2013 Australian tour of England, which also included the 2013 ICC Champions Trophy, five One Day Internationals and two Twenty20 Internationals.. If England really go for it, the risk of losing is significantly greater than the chance of winning - sufficiently greater to justify not doing so. Thanks lads, as a Pom living in Oz, I have come out nine six packs of Coopers Pale Ale to the good! Bell run out 17 Australia are being booed for taking their time between overs. I thought his bat hit the ground. Andrew Strauss had his problems with hanging a little on the back foot, before his career-saving 177 in Napier, and Marcus Trescothick was about the best at getting to the ball with an economy of movement. "As an old Lancashire and England supporter, I've been giving some thought as to who should be man of the series. Mitchell Starc – Might he, like Mitchell Johnson with whom he shares more than just a first name and a left-arm over actions, be destined to be a raw quick, always mixing up the unplayable with the ordinary? BY CHARLES REYNOLDS. <noframe>Twitter: Nick Hoult - They say Australia have forgotten how to win. There are still almost 70 overs left today, so Australia could theoretically score 120 in 20 overs and set England around 235 in 50 overs. And then, perhaps, one shot too many: he clouted the following delivery high in the air, and Starc ran round from mid-on to take a fine two-handed catch as he slid forward.
