Sometimes Ashes cricket seems so inevitable – Steve Smith batting for hours, rain delays, beach balls on the outfield. OK, scrap the last one. But with the worst weather passing, the 4th Test has now come alive largely thanks to Smith's double hundred. With the series back to 1-1 and everything to play for, England and Australia are in Manchester. Read on to find out the best ways to get an England vs Australia 4th Test live stream.
For England, the big talking point going in to the 4th Test has been the loss of pace bowler Jimmy Anderson following a recurrence of his calf injury, with Somerset’s Craig Overton called into the first XI. It will be an otherwise unchanged team for this match, with Joe Denly set to swap in the batting order with Jason Roy.
Having bowled England out for 67 and with the Ashes within their grasp, the Aussies somehow conspired (with a bit of help from Ben Stokes) to lose the third Test and it will be interesting to see what impact the manner of that loss will have on the visitors.
A major positive for Australia is the comeback of Smith at the expense of Usman Khawaja, returning from the concussion he suffered after being hit by a 92mph Jofra Archer bouncer. They'll also be hoping the inclusion of a fresh pace bowler – Mitchell Starc – will help turn the tide back their way.
