Josh Hazlewood joined Adam Voges, who was looking to complete a half-century of his own.


​Day 2 roundup

Ben Stokes`s five-wicket haul left England on the verge of an Ashes-clinching win in the fourth Test at Trent Bridge on Friday. The all-rounder stood up to his task and enthralled the fans at Nottingham.

When bad light forced an early close to the second day, Australia were 241 for seven in their second innings -- still 90 runs shy of making England, 2-1 up in the five-match series, bat again.

Pace bowling all-rounder Stokes had taken five wickets for 35 runs in 16 overs. Adam Voges will look to bat a s long as possible but he looks short of batting partners. The 35-year-old batsman is on 48 and has played well so far in this innings. 

Alastair Cook will be a happy man with the way England have gone through their task in the series by uprooting the shaky Aussies. The bowling has been England's strength and Joe Root has been the knight with the shining armour of the batting department. 

England will look to wrap up three wickets quickly as possible and get an innings victory. This will be psychological boost ahead of the final Test. For Aussies they need to go back and change their approach mentally especially the batting that has let them down.
