The English team now leads this year's Ashes two tests to one. They only need to tie the final test to win the Ashes for the first time since 1986/7.

England gains upper hand in Ashes Series with 2-1

TRENT BRIDGE: It went to the wire and a close finish in the fourth test of the Ashes Series with England gaining an upper hand of 2-1 when they reached home with just three wickets remaining in the hand. The noise grew louder in the last session as the Barmy Army fully backing the home side cheered every single run English batsmen scored. It was Ashley Giles and Mathew Hoggard who saw England home with just three wickets to spare but there were very nervous moments in the ground as sweaty palms in the dressing room to take an edge over the World Champions Australia as Shane Warne has his magic work for the Aussies and pace of Bret Lee pushing the English batsman with their backs to the wall. Andrew Flintoff for his all round performance was named man of the match.
