    Australia reach 126/3 at Stumps on rain-shortened Day 1 of of the 4th Test against England

    Australia aim to move one step closer to a 5-0 series whitewash while England search for inspiration to improve upon their performances in the fourth Ashes Test in Sydney.

    Overview

    Australia vs England, fourth Test
    Sydney Cricket Ground, Sydney
    January 5-9, 10:30 am local

    Australia will be without the services of Travis Head for the fourth Test with Usman Khawaja replacing him in the XI. The hero of the last match, Scott Boland will also get another chance with Josh Hazlewood still not declared fit. The motivation will be high in the Australian camp with the chance of a 5-0 series whitewash being on the back of their minds.

    England have brought back Stuart Broad for the match with Ollie Robinson missing out. They will count on his experience along with James Anderson to provide them with inspiration. The batting displays will also have to improve by leaps and bounds if they are to avoid going 4-0 down in the series. The onus will again be on skipper Joe Root to score the bulk of the runs.


    Remember the last time

    Batting first on a grassy Melbourne track, England were bowled out for 185 after a collective bowling performance by the Australian bowling unit.

    In reply, Australia managed to muster up a score of 267 guided by Marcus Harris' 76. England were already in a world of trouble at the end of day two, losing four wickets.

    On the third morning, the visitors were blown away, being bowled out for a paltry 68, losing the contest by an innings and 14 runs. Scott Boland ended up with figures of 6/7 in four overs in the innings, as Australia took an unassailable 3-0 lead in the series.


    What they said

    Pat Cummins (Australia captain): "Just an awesome few weeks, so proud of the group as everything clicked and everything worked out. Thrilled for Scott Boland playing in front of his home crowd here. We have been relentless. The bowlers have just turned up and owned their areas outside off-stump. There have been big partnerships, everyone's performed, everyone's contributed - it's a great feeling."

    Joe Root (England captain): "We have a lot of hard work to do now and come back strong in the last two games. Covid threat wasn't ideal. The way we went about our cricket, especially our bowling was excellent yesterday. Credit to the boys for managing it and giving ourselves a chance in this game. We just have got to do things for longer. There have been pockets, but that's just not enough. We know where we need to work and we have to stay very strong and make sure we look at the next two games as a real opportunity to take something away from this tour."

    Decent pace from Anderson. 135 kph. But ball doesn't appear to be moving. May be a hint?

    Broad and Anderson don't consistently pitch the ball up, for me this is where Root is a poor captain, if their not willing to sacrifice a few boundaries by pitching it up then quickly change it. Bumrah and Shami are on another level, they look so threatening.

    They are a few yards quicker. I have rarely seen slower bowlers doing well in Aus. Some have done well, but rare.

    Lack of variety i must say. Broad has a little more variety. But he lacks pace these days. Also not a shoulder bowler like Flintoff to extract bounce off the deck. When on Song Broad can be a handful like when he was during his 8 for 15. But in Australia bowling into the pitch letting the ball fly off the pitch will create more chances.

    Broad and Anderson at their ages are useless outside England. England need to focus on the future

    Loose shot from Warner. Reward for Broad for maintaining the channel.

    Australia ended a rain-interrupted day one of the fourth Ashes Test in Sydney at 126/3 after a disciplined bowling performance from England.

    Despite rain in the air, Australia won the toss and elected to bat first. Out walked openers David Warner and Marcus Harris and they had to see through a disciplined effort from the English bowlers and also rain interruptions. They kept up their focus though, as Australia headed to lunch in a curtailed session at 30/0.

    After walking back out, Warner got into the flow of things playing a couple of glorious strokes. Just as he was settled on the crease, the ploy of bowling round the wicket against him from Stuart Broad worked again. A full ball outside the off tempted a drive from Warner and Zak Crawley gratefully accepted the catch at second slip.

    Rain would soon play spoilsport again as the teams headed back to the pavilion with Australia's score at 56/1. This brought about an early end to the session and the start of the final session would be delayed too.

    In the final session, Harris joined by Marnus Labuschagne got Australia's total past 100. But Jimmy Anderson would strike with some inspired piece of bowling. With the ball pitching on middle and leaving with the angle, it would induce an edge off Harris' bat with the opener being dismissed for 38.

    Wood would then get Labuschagne with some brilliant piece of bowling, again getting the edge as the batter walked back for 28. Australia now found themselves three down with Steve Smith and the returning Usman Khawaja needing to negotiate through a tricky period.

    And they would do just that, while also moving the score along before rain interrupted again to bring an early close of play. Australia will resume on day two with the score at 126/3.

    Australia's own champion bowler, possibly the Goat test bowler of all time McGrath was of a similar pace to what broad Anderson ball now, but he bowled the fuller length .

    The game is evenly poised at the end of day 1.

    If ENG can take quick wickets in the first hour, then they have a chance to take the lead.
