Mixed morning for England in 4th Ashes test

August 11, 2013 (7STARNEWS)The fourth Ashes test was evenly balanced at lunch on day three after England quickly wrapped up the final five wickets of Australia's first innings but lost Joe Root cheaply to lie eight runs behind.

Resuming 16 runs adrift on 222-5, the Australians added just 48 before being bowled out for 270, with overnight centurion Chris Rogers (110) one of two batsmen to fall to offspinner Graeme Swann before the new ball was taken.

Stuart Broad completed his ninth five-wicket haul in tests by trapping Ryan Harris (28) lbw to end the innings, but a satisfying morning's work by England was tarnished when Root was bowled by a pearler from Harris before lunch.

Alastair Cook was on 17 and Jonathan Trott hadn't scored, with England on 24-1.
