The Ashes | 4th Test, Day 5 - With 20 overs remaining, England batsmen hanging on
9 Jan 2022
Captain Pat Cummins led by example on the final day of the SCG Test to turn the tide for the hosts on Sunday, 9 January.
Just when England were looking like they will see through the day by negotiating the final few overs with five wickets in hand. However, England’s plans were thrown out of the window in the 85th over of the game when Pat Cummins bowled two stunners to get rid of Jos Buttler and Mark Wood in a space of three deliveries.
Cummins set up Buttler by bowling outside the off stump and then unleashed a full and straight one on the money to go through the gap between his bat and pad. The Mark Wood delivery was more magical as the captain gave the English bowler no chance with a booming inswinging yorker that banged him on his front foot.
Australia need three more wickets to win and have 14 overs remaining. Jonny Bairstow and Jack Leach are batting in the crease.
