111th Over
The second test starts at Lords on Thursday, can we dare to expect another match like this one?
And finally, Haddin's heroic innings that almost dragged Australia across the line. Once more Anderson proving the difference.
Great efforts all round, from Siddle's 5fer in the first innings, Anderson's 5fer in the first Australian innings, the heroics of Hughes and of course Agar on debut. Bell's century in tense and trying circumstances and Broad's supportive half century.
What an incredible test match, I don't think we could have hoped for a better start to an Ashes series.
Anderson ends with 5 wickets for the innings and 10 wickets for the match
After the controversies that have dogged the DRS decisions in this match it seems somewhat appropriate that the game is decided in this way. A very faint mark on hotspot and snicko suggests an edge as well.
Over 110.5: Anderson to Haddin, no run, OUT, drives at one outside off, between bat and pad, big shout but turned down, Cook immediately signals to go upstairs, after long deliberation the 3rd umpire decides it is out. Hint of a faint edge on hot spot.
