Aus 296 | Overs 110.5 | Pattinson 25* OUT! Haddin c Prior b Anderson 71

Jimmy Anderson finishes it off after lunch as he finds the faint edge off Brad Haddin’s bat to give England a 1-0 lead in the five-match series.

Read the Day 5 report here.


Damien Fleming has some words of advice for the Englishmen:
 


Aus 291/9 | Overs 108 | Haddin 69*, Pattinson 22* (LUNCH – Day 5)

So, that’s lunch then. Haddin and Pattinson have taken Australia to within 20 runs of what would be a phenomenal win. England still need just that one ball to put an end to proceedings. But we are in for a tense last few minutes of this game, either way.

Read the lunch report here.


Aus 281/9 | Overs 102 | Haddin 60*, Siddle 21*

Haddin and Pattinson have brought up their 50-partnership! What a match this is turning out to be!
 


Brad Haddin brings up his half-century. The fall of wickets hasn’t deterred him. He’s decided to give it the kitchen sink.




Aus 231/9 | Overs 95 | Haddin 36*, Pattinson 0* OUT! Siddle c Cook b Anderson 11

c Cook b Anderson for the third straight time as England move a wicket closer to a win.


Aus 211/8 | Overs 89 | Haddin 31*, Siddle 0* OUT! Starc c Cook b Anderson 1

And Jimmy Anderson has taken another one! Mitchell Starc is the man to go and he falls in almost identical fashion to Agar. Cook is the catcher again in the slips.
 


Aus 207/7 | Overs 87 | Haddin 28*, Starc 0* OUT! Agar c Cook b Anderson 14

Ashton Agar’s average has finally dipped below Sir Don Bradman. Brilliant delivery from James Anderson who gets Ashton Agar to poke at it and the ball goes straight to first slip.
 


 







Aus 187/6 | Overs 80 | Haddin 20*, Agar 5*

Haddin shows first real signs of aggression as he slog-sweeps Swann over square-leg for a four. Five runs have come off Swann’s over.


Aus 180/6 | Overs 76 | Haddin 15*, Agar 3*

Ashton Agar gets his first runs of the day courtesy of a delicate sweep. Agar and Haddin run two. Agar is looking for the third run but it was an impossible run. Agar turns back at the right time.


Aus 178/6 | Overs 73 | Haddin 15*, Agar 1*

After Ashton Agar plays Graeme Swann’s first over of the day — a testing over, Haddin too is cautious in the first over he plays. On the fourth ball of the over ‘keeper Matt Prior stands up to the stumps to bring Haddin back to his crease. Haddin was a foot outside to negate reverse-swing. Off the fifth ball, Haddin late-cuts Anderson for his first boundary of the day.


Hello and welcome to CricketCountry’s coverage of the final day of the first Ashes Test played between, of course, England and Australia.

After bowling out England for 375, Australia started off confidently chasing 311. The opening partnership of Shane Watson and Chris Rogers put 84. But after Watson fell, wickets started to tumble soon. England picked up six wickets.

Graeme Swann picked up the momentum and had important wickets of Steven Smith and Phil Hughes in the final session.

Stuart Broad got the ball to move. He picked up Watson and Michael Clarke. Joe Root had Ed Cowan caught at slips while James Anderson had half-centurion Rogers for 52.

Welcome to the important day of the Test match. Will Australia chase down 311? They have Ashton Agar and Brad Haddin at the crease.
