The visiting Australians are still in command of the third Test as England requires more than 200 runs with three wickets left to level the 1st Innings score.
The Ashes 2013
A strong comeback from the Australian batsmen well led by their skipper, Michael Clarke, and two wickets at the end of the 2nd day put them on top vs. England.
Michael Clarke led his side from the front with a gallant unbeaten ton as Chris Rogers and Steven Smith rose to the occasion with their solid batting vs. England.
A sparkling ton from the young gun of England, Joe Root, assisted by a solid batting from Ian Bell put England in a commanding position against Australia.
The shameful batting of Australia put them down again in the second Test as they surrendered against the quality bowling of England who looks for another win.
A deadly spell in the first session of the final day from James Anderson crippled the lower order batting of Australia as England won the 1st Test at Nottingham.
The Australians followed the chase superbly but their middle order batting crumbled against the splendid bowling by the Englishmen who are anticipating a win.
