After a shaky start with the bat on Day 4 which saw three quick wickets, Travis Head and Marnus Labuschagne kicked Australia into gear before Jhye Richardson & Mitchell Starc brought England on knees making it a perfect day for the hosts.

Australia is in the driver’s seat especially with England skipper Joe Root’s wicket falling on the last ball of Day 4’s play. They will be looking to wrap up things as quickly as possible and as Jhye Richardson said that pitch has spiced up, England faces an uphill task.

The tourists will be hoping for another Ben Stokes’s Headingley heroics. While a victory looks improbable with 386 runs required, England has Ben Stokes, Ollie Pope, Jos Buttler, and a couple more batters to stand a chance to end it in a draw.

However, looking at Australia’s 100 % win record in the pink-ball Test and the current situation of the ongoing Test, it’s highly unlikely England could deny Australia going two-nil up in the Ashes 2021.
