The Ashes: England record-holder James Anderson grabs maiden 5-wicket haul

first_imgJames Anderson picked up where he left off in Monday’s night session with a superb display of seam bowling to dismiss nightwatchman Nathan Lyon, a jittery Peter Handscomb and Mitchell Starc cheaply, on day four of the second Ashes test on Tuesday.A first five-wicket haul in Australia for James Anderson (5-43) and 4-36 from Chris Woakes had handed the tourists a target of 354 to win the test and level up the series after they dismissed their hosts for 138 at tea.Although the hosts managed to add only 85 runs to their overnight tally in bright sunshine at Adelaide Oval, that was still enough to push their lead well past the record successful fourth innings run chase at the ground of 315.Woakes chipped in to see off Tim Paine and Shaun Marsh, ensuring the latter was unable to repeat the unbeaten 126 that underpinned Australia’s 442 for eight declared in the first innings. England lost both their openers in the last half hour of the second session to drop to 68 for two, 286 shy of their hefty victory target, after making a steady start to their run chase.Alastair Cook, who made 16, and Mark Stoneman, who notched up 36, had defied the Australian bowlers and put on an opening stand of 53 before they departed in the space of four overs leaving James Vince and Joe Root at the crease.Vince had made eight not out and skipper Root seven at dinner.A five-wicket haul for Jimmy Anderson!
