    Poor cricket by Stokes to expose Root to Starc during the last over of the day while he was injured. Horrible lack of intelligence from everyone concerned.

    Former England wicketkeeper Matt Prior has been speaking to BT Sport and trying to offer some optimism…

    “You’ve got four brave Englishman that have to do most of the work. Ollie Pope will be coming to the crease tomorrow with Ben Stokes, you’ve got Jos Buttler to come after him and Chris Woakes.

    “You feel that it’s those four that have to bat for the majority of the day for England to stand a chance.”

    Australia set England a target of 468 to chase on day four of the second Ashes Test in Adelaide before the bowlers reduced them to 82/4 ahead of the final day.

    Starting the day off without the presence of skipper Joe Root, England had their backs up against the wall in order to restrict Australia as much as possible. James Anderson and Stuart Broad though came up with the commendable effort in their opening burst, pitching the ball up and getting some assistance off the wicket. Anderson would get the scalp of Michael Neser with a peach of a delivery, which was too good for the nightwatchman. Broad, bowling round the wicket, got one to nip away from Marcus Harris which got the edge to bring an end to his knock of 23.

    Smith should have been back in the pavilion too but Jos Buttler's mixed performance with the gloves continued as he dropped the Australian skipper off the bowling of Stuart Broad. Smith couldn't make merry of the reprieve though as he was dismissed on 6 by Ollie Robinson as he tickled a ball which was down the leg side straight into the hands of Buttler.

    Australia found themselves four down but the lead soon crossed 300 with the visitors getting desperate. Ollie Robinson would then revert to bowling off-spin, hoping to make things happen on a pitch that clearly had some assistance for the spinners.

    But Labuschagne and Head would flick on a switch after the first hour, taking the attack to the bowlers. Head especially looked in sublime touch, scoring at run-a-ball. The pair would ensure that Australia didn't have any more hiccups before the dinner break. The hosts would score 89 runs, extending their lead up to 371.

    Head could not continue on with his rampage in the second session with Stokes taking a magnificent catch to dismiss him on 51. Lanuschagne would also bring up his half-century and then hole out in the deep in order to up the tempo. Alex Carey would follow suit on 6 with Cameron Green having the task of adding some runs with the tail.

    He would do exactly that, getting great support from Mitchell Starc, who scored 19 off 20 despite having some troubles with his back. Richardson would then walk in and deposit one in the stand before holing out to Buttler. With the lead at 467, skipper Steve Smith declared the Australian innings with England now having a big task to survive over 130 overs.

    England would have the worst possible chase in the thirty minutes they had to survive before tea as Haseeb Hameed walked back to the pavilion without troubling the scorers. Jhye Richardson would be the man to deliver the breakthrough for the hosts as they headed to the break with their tails up.

    Rory Burns and Dawid Malan would then frustrate the bowlers after the break and the Aussies had to adopt a patient approach. But that finally paid off as Michael Neser's accuracy got the better of Malan, who was trapped plumb in front. He reviewed the call but was unsuccessful walking back for 20.

    Richardson would strike again finally bringing an end to Burns' dogged knock of 34 with Steve Smith taking a good catch. Skipper Joe Root and Ben Stokes now had it all to do in the final part of the day.

    It seemed as though they would get through the rest of the day with the pair still at the crease. But Mitchell Starc delivered a hammer blow in the final over before stumps, getting the big scalp of Root with a delivery that shaped away from round the wicket. The skipper would be gone for 24, leaving his side in all sorts of delirium ahead of the fifth and final day.

    Not sure why England even bothered to tour. There were numerous reports about players wanting this series to be cancelled due to bubble fatigue.

    They have made zero preparations to win in Australia. They haven't picked a squad with the intention of winning in Australia. They aren't picking a playing eleven with the intention of winning in Australia. The players ie batters and bowlers are not playing as if they desperately want to win in Australia.

    England with the team that they have have made the same mistakes that they did in the Australian tour of 2017-18 but still zero lessons learnt and Joe Root was the captain in that series as well and he is the captain in the existing series as well.

    Is anyone in the English Cricket senior hierarchy going to be held accountable for all this?

    It will be epic if Eng can save this test. Yes, not likely but that's why epic. Some teams have done it so not impossible.
