Britain’s expectations of sparing the Ashes blurred with the loss of two late wickets on the fourth day of the fourth Test against Australia at Old Trafford.

Looked with the possibility of batting for 30 minutes on Saturday evening and another 98 overs on Sunday, the home side saw Rory Burns and Joe Root withdraw to progressive Pat Cummins conveyances.

From the third chunk of the innings, Burns got a main edge to mid-off, while Root was bowled by a great conveyance that cut the off bail.

By one way or another, Joe Denly and Jason Roy got past the following six overs as England shut on 18-2.
