Ball By Ball Commentary

Over 125. no runs. Bowler: Moeen Ali. Australia: 4-263(rr 2.10)
125.2 Moeen Ali to Mitchell Marsh. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the back foot defending, to silly mid on for no runs, fielded by Cook. Steve Smith and Joe Root shake hands and that is match drawn. It has been inevitable since lunch with Smith defending with such ease and he had an able partner in Mitch Marsh who played his part.The pitch didn't add much life into the game for batsmen or bowlers and that has been a huge talking point with 20 wickets being very hard to get for either team. England have a lot of positives to take from this game though with Alastair Cook breaking records on his way to scoring 244 and he put his team in a good position to win until rain and Smith dampened the spirits.A whitewash is off the table now as we move to Sydney for the final Test where we could see a couple of changes for both teams. See you then.

76.6 OUT! Caught. Stuart Broad to Shaun Marsh. Seaming away length ball, to leg on the front foot defending, outside edge to wicketkeeper, by Bairstow. What a grab from Bairstow on the stroke of lunch. He is stood so close since the pitch has been slow, the edge has flown to his left off the bat and he is able to stick out one hand and luckily the ball sticks in the palm. England have a sniff of victory with those two late wickets. In the first hour or so it looked as though the draw was the most likely result but Warner's brain-fade opened up an end and with the new ball around the corner England have a new batsman to bowl at. Game on at the MCG.

44.6 Chris Woakes to Steven Smith. Length ball, outside off stump on the back foot defending, back to bowler for no runs, fielded by Woakes. Hello and welcome to the final day of the fourth Test. England had hopes of getting their first win on tour yesterday but the Aussie weather had it's say along with a resolute David Warner and Steve Smith. The first session will be a case of all or nothing for the English bowlers as if they don't break this partnership and more this will peter out to a draw, unless Australia want to try something. Lets see how this plays out.
44.5 Chris Woakes to Steven Smith. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot defending, to short extra cover for no runs, fielded by Vince. The players are off once again. Not a heavy rain but more of a persistent drizzle which is annoying England who are trying to keep the ball as dry as possible to keep it reversing.We will go for tea as the rain continues to fall. Australia have been stubborn in defense all session and not lost a single wicket but the runs have been nudging along very slowly. England need to continue to plug away as one wicket could bring a couple more and along with it the win.That's it for the day with the rain getting heavier and thunder and lightning around. After the day we have seen the draw is looking the most likely result after Australia blunted the England attack with solid defensive shots and moved along to 103-2 from 43.5 overs. England will need something special to happen tomorrow morning if they are to generate a result out of this game but the way Steve Smith and David Warner are batting that is not going to be easy. Join us tomorrow 30 minutes earlier as we try to make up some lost time.
