Ashes 2017-18: Australia v England fourth Test, day four – as it happened

Alastair Cook becomes the first man to carry his bat in an MCG Test Australia end a rain-affected day on 103 for two, 61 runs behind 6.18am GMT That’s all, folks. It’s a frustrating scene for England, though I’m sure they’ll return with bushy tails in the morning. Australia will be equally optimistic that David Warner and Steve Smith can continue their excellent defensive performance and secure a draw. They will resume tomorrow morning on 103 for two, still 61 runs behind. Thanks for your company, goodnight! 6.17am GMT “Hang on, Guy Hornsby,” says Sarah Bacon. “Nowt to be sniffed at, gin-wise, when one is an Aussie living in England, and up at sparrow’s in arctic temps to watch this thing. Seeing as we’ve already had our wins, may as well partake of gins! Bed beckons, but I’ll see this Test match through if it kills me. (It won’t.)” Continue reading...

Australia v England: fourth Ashes Test, day three – as it happened

Alastair Cook batted all day to make a mighty 244 not out and give England a great chance of victory at the MCG 7.05am GMT All the Australian players shake Cook’s hand at the close, with Steve Smith first to do so. It’s been such an uplifting innings; a reminder that, in an increasingly desperate world, the good guys can still finish first. Thanks for your company, night!Coming off the MCG today Alistair Cook gave me the impression of Roger Federer .Such a humble, modest , shy champion. 7.01am GMT 144th over: England 491-9 (Cook 244, Anderson 0) Alastair Cook completes a perfect day in style, driving Marsh immaculately between extra cover and mid-off for four. That takes him past Brian Lara and up to sixth on the list of highest Test run-scorers. Continue reading...

Lifeless MCG pitch allows re-energised England to rise from the dead | Adam Collins

The absence of Mitchell Starc and illness of Pat Cummins were mitigating factors but after a damning day for Australia at least some fingers should be pointing at 22 yards of Melbourne blandnessIf, as the Libertines sang, there is no more distressing sight than an Englishman in a baseball cap then surely there is no sadder image than an Australian seamer operating with the wicketkeeper up to the stumps on the second day of a home Test.But don’t blame Mitchell Marsh. Sure, he’s far from hitting the speed gun’s high notes since his return from shoulder surgery – but this is the story of the placid Melbourne pitch. In all the enthusiasm about the best-attended and most anticipated fixture on the calendar, the 22 yards that matter most don’t get anywhere near the scrutiny of other venues around the country.

Ashes 2017-18: Australia v England fourth Test, day two - as it happened

Alastair Cook made a lovely unbeaten hundred at the MCG, with Stuart Broad also returning to form on a brilliant day for England 7.11am GMT The final word comes from my OBO colleague Tim de Lisle:“Stranded in Dubai without a telly, but the OBO is a treat. Cook cruising to a hundred, Smith dropping a catch, Aussies reduced to bowling dry, Withington, Copestake and Naylor writing dry. Good point from Gary about the up-country games, but he is neglecting one thing: you can only have old-school touring if you also put up with old-school parenting. By the end of a five-month tour, the little Cooks and Root wouldn’t know who their dads were.” 7.03am GMT 57th over: England 192-2 (Cook 104, Root 49) That was a heartwarming end to a fine day’s play for England. David Warner walks straight up to shake Cook’s hand, and the fans of both teams applaud him off the field. England took seven Australian wickets for 83 and then scored 192 for two. There is still work to do, because batting last will be very tricky, but they are in a fine position. Thanks for your company, goodnight!Could have done with it earlier, but great efforts by Broad and Cook today, because if the scoreboard said Aus 551-6d, Eng 61 all out, people sure wouldn't be saying, "Well, it's a dead rubber."

Ashes 2017-18: Australia v England third Test, day one – as it happened

England had a fine first day in Perth, finishing on 305 for four after Dawid Malan made a superb maiden Test century 10.09am GMT When England won the toss and batted this morning, they wouldn’t have dared ask for more than a score of 305 for four at the close. It’s already theirir highest total of the series. They were in a bit of trouble before Dawid Malan and Jonny Bairstow gave a lesson in how to bat in Australian conditions. Malan made his maiden Test century, an innings that was so impressive in so many different ways; and Bairstow, promoted to No6, reached his highest score against Australia. England aren’t back in the series just yet, but at least they have identified a route back. Australia bowled pretty well on an excellent pitch, with Hazlewood the pick of their attack. They have a newish ball to work with tomorrow morning and will still feel they can dismiss England for under 400. England will want at least 450, ideally 500. It should be a cracking second day. Thanks for your company, bye! 10.04am GMT 89th over: England 305-4 (Malan 110, Bairstow 75) Bairstow, who looks mentally tired, plays a nothing stroke at Cummins and is beaten. Cummins is still steaming in, but he can’t get the late wicket that Australia crave. It’s the end of a superb day for England. Continue reading...

Street-smart Pat Cummins can give the Waca a roaring Ashes farewell | Jason Gillespie

Fast bowler is a pleasure to watch having cleverly recalibrated after injury to resemble a 50-cap veteran as he prepares to pepper England in the third TestIt was during the second Ashes Test at the Waca in 1998 that I experienced one of the most important moments in my time as a player. Though in front in the match, on the second evening England’s batsmen launched a second-innings counterattack and suddenly my bowling was being taken apart.

The Final Word: Jason Gillespie on Pat Cummins and Australia's bowling riches – podcast

In the latest episode of The Final Word, Geoff Lemon and Adam Collins talk in-depth with the great Australian fast bowler Jason Gillespie. After the Adelaide Test, the Ashes winner tells them how Australia’s current crop of bowlers is ‘something pretty special’ and says Pat Cummins – who like Gillespie had a lot of injuries early in his career – has the ‘X factor’. Gillespie, now a Guardian columnist and sought-after coach, also talks about his Indigenous heritage, turning vegan … and why he’s still open to working with an international side after a brief on-off ‘date’ with England Jason Gillespie: James Vince can look a million bucks with his drives but he’s an enigma Continue reading...

Ashes 2017-18: Australia beat England by 120 runs in second Test – as it happened

England fall short in run chase on final day in AdelaideMitchell Starc and Josh Hazlewood do damage with ball 6.06am GMT Right, that’s enough from us. Let Rob Smyth dream the dreams of unfettered men, and let me dream dreams of feta cheese. It will be dinner time at Adelaide shortly. Thank you so much for your company, especially those of you keeping the longest and loneliest hours. We feel your presence! Geoff Lemon making my farewells – thanks also for all the tweets and emails, and sorry again to those I couldn’t get to. Oh yes - we had 20,098 people in today to watch the finale, which is incredible in itself, and means the match figure is 199,147. Had England put a partnership together, would have cracked the 200,000 mark. Brilliant work on that front by the Adelaide Oval, Cricket Aus, and the SACA. Related: Australian bowlers end England resistance to take 2-0 Ashes lead 5.54am GMT A quick run-down, if you’ll humour me. The pace attack, going well. All of them have contributed at key times, and they’ve worked well together. Key is the way that Cummins has influenced games despite being the least experienced in the side. He’s a future leader if he can stay fit. The batting, everyone in the top seven has had a decent hit apart from Peter Handscomb. In our fast-forward world, there’ll be pressure on him, but I doubt the selectors will want to change a winning side.
