Ashes Live: Day Five


Lunch here at Trent Bridge, and this match has had everything. A tense morning session has seen three wickets fall to Jimmy Anderson before another partnership has threatened to derail England at the last. Requiring 20, Haddin worked brilliantly and is 69*, while James Pattinson has looked assured while building his 22*.

A last gasp drop from Steven Finn could have ended the innings before the interval, despite a sprint and dive he couldn’t wrap his hands around it well enough to stop it travelling for four. The extended session had palpable tension, explosions of emotion, and there’s sure to be jubilation and heartache this afternoon.
