England bowl; Wood replaces Anderson

Sports Page — England won the toss and chose to bowl on an overcast morning at the start of the fourth Investec Test at Trent Bridge. Alastair Cook had called for England’s players to “etch their names in history” by claiming a win that would regain the Ashes and a first chance to field would be exactly what they wanted.

That put immediate emphasis on the batting form of Cook’s opposite number – Australia’s captain Michael Clarke. He has slipped down to No. 5, with Shaun Marsh, who replaces his brother Mitchell, carded to come in at No. 4.

The Australian team appeared clueless with Chris Broad getting the ball to do enough through the air and off the pitch.

It was a rapid procession from pavilion to pitch and back to the pavilion

Australia dramatically bowled out for 60 in the fourth Ashes test match.

Chris Broad had the amazing figures of 9.3 overs; 5 maidens 8 wickets for 15 runs

Extras top scored with 14; Mitchell Johnson got 13 and Captain Michael Clarke 10

At lunch, England was 13 for no loss.
