Ashes First Test Day 4 – and it seems that England are struggling

England is on the verge of losing the first Ashes Test after Australia dominated the fourth day in Brisbane.

Needing 170 to win, the home side require only 56 more on Monday.  Reaching the close on 114-0, with David Warner 60 not out and Cameron Bancroft unbeaten on 51.

Such a modest target was the result of the good work of their bowlers, who dismissed England for 195.

The tourists had opportunities to set Australia a more challenging chase, but Joe Root (51), Jonny Bairstow (42) and Moeen Ali (40) failed to make telling contributions following good starts.

After Moeen was controversially stumped off the bowling of Nathan Lyon, England’s tail was blown away by vicious fast bowling from Mitchell Starc and Pat Cummins.

Fans from UK are in Brisbane to encourage the England team.  Support has been fantastic.  The visitors need all backing and support at the moment. But it is not over yet.
