Two deliveries is all it took to turn this topsy-turvy game permanently in England’s favour. Australia, on 164 for three, were cruising along to their target of 311 with skipper Michael Clarke and young gun Steven Smith at the crease. The duo had come together after half-centurion Chris Rogers had thrown his wicket away to James Anderson after a responsible knock. They had played the pace-spin combination put forth by Alastair Cook with gusto, not afraid to go for their shots. Then, it all went south.

Clarke and Smith reviewed their dismissals but didn't go their way. England look favourite to clinch the first Test with just four wickets to snap and take a 1-0 lead.
