First Investec Ashes Test Match, Trent Bridge

England won by 14 runs



One of the best test matches in recent memory, images of Edgbaston in the 2005 Ashes came rushing back. Ebbing and flowing between each session, the spectators at Trent Bridge, Nottingham never really knew who had the upper hand. From Siddle’s opening bowling spell on Day 1 to Ashton Agar’s record breaking 98 on Day 2, it was at first Australia’s game to lose. Then Pietersen (64) and Ian Bell (109) counter attacked brilliantly, soaking up a lot of pressure to leave Australia 311 to win. When Anderson took the ninth wicket before lunch on the last day, it seemed an English victory was inevitable. But as Haddin batted superbly, relying on great support from Agar and Pattinson, the required runs kept getting lower and lower.

Australia looked like they were going to pull off the impossible. With 20 to win at lunch, English heads were faced downwards. »
