    Default Agar's double strike puts Aus on top



    England started cautiously on Friday morning, Day 3 of the first Ashes Test. Overnight batsmen Alastair Cook and Kevin Pietersen chose to play the deliveries on merit.
    But soon Peietersen settled in well and stepped up the scoring.




    While on Thursday Pietersen was more than happy to see off the difficult period, the morning of Day 3 was all about intent.
    He attacked the ball more as he made his intentions pretty clear with a boundary off Peter Sidlle.
    He took a special liking to Mitchell Starc, as he fiercely cut and pulled the pacer for boundaries in consecutive overs from the bowler.
    Cook gave him good company, more than happy to play second fiddle.



    Pietersen went on to register an impressive half-century, having missed out on one in the first.
    After providing the early momentum, he reached the landmark with a boundary off Starc.
    It was, however, Pietersen’s fourth slowest half-century in Test matches, as the situation demanded a patient knock



    James Pattinson provided Australia the much-needed breakthrough, dismissing the dangerous-looking Pietersen for 64.
    The batsman let his aggression get the better of him.
    Chasing a wide delivery from Pattinson, he dragged the ball on to his stumps and was out after scoring 64. It was the big wicket Australia wanted desperately.



    Ashton Agar, who walked out to a thunderous applause in the morning, grabbed his first wicket in Test cricket, having the well-set Alastair Cook walking back to the pavilion for 50.
    Just before his dismissal he completed a half-century with a single off Pattinson.
    In the next over, looking to play one on the leg-side, he got a leading edge and was caught beautifully by Michael Clarke in the slips.




    After the dismissals of Pietersen and Cook, Ian Bell and Johnny Bairstow combined well to steady England after lunch.
    Even though Pattinson and Mitchell Starc were able to obtain significant reverse swing, Bell looked comfortable against them.
    Bell, with delicate late cuts, got consecutive boundaries off Pattinson in an over.
    Bairstow, meanwhile, was happy dealing in singles.




    Debutant Agar struck another crucial blow. He had Johnny Bairstow walking back after having him caught behind by wicketkeeper Brad Haddin.
    The Bell-Bairstow partnership that was looking promising added 43 runs for the fifth wicket, before Agar extract spin from the rough to provide the breakthrough.

    Default Agar breaks Test record score for number 11



    Australia's Ashton Agar played an extraordinary innings of 98 on his Test debut against England on Thursday, the highest ever score by a number 11 in a Test match.
    The 19-year-old came to the crease with Australia on 117 for nine and shared a Test record last-wicket partnership of 163 with Phil Hughes.


    He fell two runs short of his century, caught by Graeme Swann off Stuart Broad at deep mid-wicket, as Australia were finally dismissed for 280, a first-innings lead of 65.
    The previous highest individual Test score by a number 11 was West Indian Tino Best's 95 against England last year.
    The left-arm spinner had only played 10 first-class matches before being named in the Australia side for this first Ashes Test.

    Default Australia have Cook, Pietersen for lunch

    Australia claimed the prize wickets of Kevin Pietersen and Alastair Cook as England laboured to 157 for four at lunch on the third day of the first Ashes Test at Trent Bridge on Friday.


    Pietersen, on 64, dragged a ball from James Pattinson on to his stumps and Cook fell for 50, a first Test victim for Ashton Agar whose extraordinary innings of 98 turned the match Australia's way on Thursday.
    Ian Bell, on 20, and Jonny Bairstow, 13, were the not out batsmen at the interval with England 92 runs ahead.
    Cook and Pietersen started with the same cautious approach they adopted on Thursday when they steadied the ship for England after the loss of two early wickets.
    Pietersen drove Mitchell Starc to the cover boundary to reach his fifty, one of his 12 fours, and looked in the mood to play a long innings.
    But he was distracted by a spectator moving in the pavilion and dragged the next ball from Pattinson on to his stumps trying to force it through the off side, ending a third-wicket partnership of 110.
    Cook's four-hour vigil was over shortly afterwards, the captain edging a top-spinner from left-arm spinner Agar to slip where Australia captain Michael Clarke held a fine one-handed catch high to his left.
    The Australians were cock-a-hoop and the crowd fell quiet, although Bell struck one textbook drive to the cover boundary to briefly raise spirits.
    Pattinson and Starc obtained significant reverse swing and troubled Bell and Bairstow but the pair survived a few uncomfortable moments to give England hope of setting Australia a difficult target to chase in the fourth innings.

    Default Ashes: Brit Press goes mild on Aus, praise home team after thriller



    Breaking its tradition of criticising the Australian team, the British Press has reacted to England's win in the first Ashes Test in a much milder language, while only praising the home team, James Anderson in particular, for the close win.

    The intense sporting rivalry between the two nations has, for decades, been responsible for screaming headlines and acerbic articles. On Monday morning, Australians woke to the news of the heartbreaking defeat, with the usual sting in language largely missing from the front pages of newspapers, with The Sun even going on to offer a word of condolence to the Australians.

    The relief felt by Britons after the close win, however, was evident in most newspapers.
    They lavished praise on matchwinner James Anderson, whose four-wicket haul brought his total for the match to 1



    The Daily Telegraph and Guardian both carried a photograph of England players celebrating the winning moment on the front page.
    ‘Howzat for starters?’ the Guardian's headline said.
    In reference to Brad Haddin’s controversial dismissal, the headline of the Daily Mail read ‘We've nicked it’.
    The Telegraph's Simon Hughes celebrated England's swing-king Anderson.
    "Michael Holding, the West Indies fast bowler...has a good yardstick for judging bowlers," he wrote.
    "Only when one has taken at least four wickets-per-Test over a long period of time, can they be considered 'great'."
    "With his 10 wickets, Jimmy Anderson nudged closer to that milestone. He is on the verge of greatness," wrote Hughes




    The Times' Simon Barnes called Anderson's four-wicket burst on Sunday a 'stupendous effort'.
    "Anderson will be the most successful bowler in England's history. And as good as any that bowled," he wrote.
    The Guardian's showed consolation for the Aussies despite the 14-run defeat.
    "No glory for defeated Australia in first Ashes Test but plenty of hope," he said.
    "The determined display from Michael Clarke's men suggests sum will be much greater than their parts.
    "It is not generally part of an Australian's psyche to take consolation from a 'good' defeat," he added. "But if ever this was justified it was at the end of this Test."

    Default England retain squad for second Ashes Test

    England named an unchanged 13-man squad for the second Ashes test against Australia starting at Lord's on Thursday after their knife-edge 14-run victory in the opening match of the series at Trent Bridge on Sunday.








    "It was a fantastic start... with both sides showing a huge amount of skill and determination," said national selector Geoff Miller, congratulating the England players on their composure.
    "I have no doubt that the rest of the series will be equally compelling. We have selected the same squad for the Lord's test as this continues to provide options for (captain) Alastair Cook and (coach) Andy Flower."
    Pace bowler Steven Finn looked out of sorts in Nottingham and could be replaced by Tim Bresnan or Graham Onions, but Lord's is his home ground.
    Squad: Alastair Cook (captain), Joe Root, Jonathan Trott, Kevin Pietersen, Ian Bell, Jonny Bairstow, Matt Prior, Tim Bresnan, Stuart Broad, Graeme Swann, Steven Finn, James Anderson, Graham Onions

    I felt that I am watching the final match of Ashes series, both the teams winning two matches each and the 5th test match is going on. It was such a fun throughout the five days of the match. Both the teams played brilliantly and I specially liked the bowling spell of Jimmy Anderson taking 10 wickets in the first test. There's lot to come in this Ashes series, looking forward to the second test match.

    Default Cowan, Starc dropped for Lord's Test

    Usman Khawaja and Ryan Harris have been roped in the Australian squad for the second Ashes Test at Lord's.





    The duo will replace Ed Cowan and Mitchell Starc.



    England, going into the match with a 1-0 advanatge following the win in the opener at Trent Bridge, had earlier named an uchanged squad for the Test.
    However, there are doubts about Steven Finn's slection, even though Lord's happens to be his home ground.
    Tim Bresnan is a likely replacement.
    There were no such doubts about the dropping of Cowan and Starc though. Both struggled in Nottingham.
    The rest of the squad remains the same.
    Australia: Michael Clarke (captain), Shane Watson, Chris Rogers, Usman Khawaja, Steve Smith, Phillip Hughes, Brad Haddin, Ashton Agar, Peter Siddle, James Pattinson, Ryan Harris.

    Default Harris strikes twice on opening day of second Test

    Ryan Harris celebrated his return to the Australia colours on Thursday with two wickets in five balls after his team appeared condemned to a long, fruitless day in the field on the opening day of the second Ashes Test at Lord's.



    Harris dismissed England opener Joe Root lbw for six after a lengthy review which finally confirmed the ball had brushed the bat but had first hit the pad. Kevin Pietersen fell in the same over caught behind for two pushing forward to a full delivery.
    Shane Watson, introduced in the fifth over, made the breakthrough when his second ball beat captain Alastair Cook off the pitch and trapped him lbw for 12.
    England were left floundering on 28 for three before reaching lunch on 80-3 with Jonathan Trott, who took boundaries off his first two deliveries, on 34.
    Cook, who had won the toss for the second Test in a row, made a brisk start on a hot, sunny day when play began 15 minutes late after the teams had been presented to Queen Elizabeth.


    He pushed his second ball from the opening over by James Pattinson from the Nursery end through mid-wicket for four and took another to square leg when the bowler strayed down the leg-side again.


    His dismissal with the score on 18 prompted a mini-slump as Harris, who replaced Mitchell Starc from the team who lost the first Test by 14 runs, bustled in with energy and intent from the Pavilion end.
    Watson, whose relationship with captain Michael Clarke had come under scrutiny again before the match with reports from Australia about a rift between the pair, played his part with four accurate overs of medium pace and the wicket of Root.
    Harris's Test career has been hampered by a chronic knee complaint and he had played only 12 Tests since making his debut at the age of 29 four years ago. His figures, though, are impressive with 47 wickets at under 24 runs each before this match.

    Default Bresnan strikes early after England dismissed for 361




    Ryan Harris took five wickets (5-72), but late resistance helped England amass 361 in their first innings on Day Two of the second Ashes Test at Lord's on Friday.
    England, though, had the wicket of opener Shane Watson (30) and Australia were 42 for one in reply at lunch, with Chris Roger, the other opener, unbeaten on 12.

    The 34-year-old, who replaced Mitchell Starc in the attack ahead of the Test, justified the selector's faith in him.
    It was Harris's third career five-wicket haul, after his six for 47 against England at WACA in December 2010 and five for 62 against Sri Lanka at Galle in August 2011.
    The wicket of Jonathan Trott, his third in the innings, also happened to be his 50th Test wicket
