Catch up with the action from the third day of the fourth Ashes Test between England and Australia at Old Trafford
Rory Burns impressed at the top of the order for England but after Josh Hazlewood made three late strikes, are the hosts fighting to save their chances of regaining the Ashes?
Jonathan Trott joined Bob Willis and Charles Colvile to discuss a mixed day for England as Burns’ and captain Joe Root’s 141-run third-wicket stand was brought to an end during the evening session as Josh Hazlewood picked up 3-18 in a searing six over spell to leave the hosts 98 runs short of their follow-on target with five wickets spare.
Bob was impressed by opener Burns’ temperament and ability to concentrate out in the middle for long periods of time, while former England batsman Trott believes the batsman has improved during the series having had more time to bat against the red ball.
