England might have lost the Ashes series this time but aim to stop the complete sweep with a fighting spirit in the fourth Test match. Jonny Bairstow puts England in a better position with his first Test hundred in Australia as well as Ben Stokes’s half-century at 66 runs including 9 fours and one six put England within reaching distance with three more wickets left in hand.
Stokes and Bairstow’s 128-run stand for the fifth wicket could be the match-winning partnership England has been looking for. The team currently trails with 158 runs as Australia declared the score early like last time at 416. Bairstow remains unbeaten with 103 and will be joined by Jack Leach at 4 runs.
