Ashes 2013 Scorecard: Full Review, Videos, Key Moments from 4th Test

England recorded victory over Australia in the fourth Test at Chester-le-Street, Durham by 74 runs—and in the process wrapped up an outright series victory.

Up 3-0 with one Test left to play, England were far from dominant against the tourists but came good at the right times to emerge victorious once again. In Durham, they were particularly indebted to fine performances from Ian Bell and Stuart Broad.

For Australia, there is now only pride to play for on this tour, until the two sides meet again on the other side of the world at the end of the year.

Before the Fourth Test

 

Day 1

  • England win the toss, and Alastair Cook elect to bat first.
  • The hosts name an unchanged side—Australia dropped Mitchell Starc to accommodate Jackson Bird.
  • England build a solid platform at 149-2, only to give it away in a reckless final session and close the day under par at 238-9.

Video highlights and session-by-session from day one

Freddie Wilde praised Nathan Lyon's bravery to spark England's collapse.

Mark Patterson wondered how many times Ian Bell could come of age.

 

Day 2

  • Australia wrap up the England innings without conceding another run.
  • The tourists lose early wickets, only for Chris Rogers and Shane Watson to combine to good effect.
  • Rogers becomes oldest Australian to score debut Test ton, closing on 101 not out as Australia reach 222-5.

Mark Patterson crunched the numbers behind Rogers' maiden Test century.

Freddie Wilde explained why Rogers' innings was something of a fairytale.

 

Day 3

  • England rally strongly in the morning, with Broad snaring five wickets as innings wrapped up for 270.
  • Early strikes from Ryan Harris leave England in serious trouble at 49-3 in their second innings.
  • Ian Bell, supported by Pietersen and Jonny Bairstow, compiles his third century of the series, as England reach stumps at 234-5, 202 runs ahead.

Bell dragged England out of trouble once again, wrote Wilde.

 

Day 4

  • Tim Bresnan and Graeme Swann chip with lower order runs to set a target of 299 for Australia.
  • David Warner (71) suddenly turns Australia into favourites after a breezy afternoon session.
  • The final session witnesses a collapse, as Broad (6-50) rips through Australia and forces a victory at 19:41 in the evening.

Antoinette Muller looked at the player of the day—and man of the match—Broad.

Venkat Ananth recounts a gripping final day and session.
