ENG vs AUS, 3rd Ashes Test, Day 4: England Beat Australia By Three Wickets To Keep Ashes Hopes Alive - In Pics

England kept their hopes of clinching the Ashes alive on Sunday as Harry Brook scored a resolute 75 before the recalled duo of Chris Woakes and Mark Wood completed a thrilling three-wicket win over Australia at Headingley. The hosts' victory reduced Australia's lead in the series to 2-1 with two Tests to play. England were struggling at 171-6, still needing a further 80 runs to reach a target of 251, after Mitchell Starc had removed skipper Ben Stokes and Jonny Bairstow in quick succession after lunch on the fourth day. However, Brook joined hands with Woakes as the duo brought the team closer to the target before Mark Wood's blitzkrieg clinched the win for the English. England now have a chance to become just the second team to win a Test series from 2-0 down after the 1936/37 Australia side, inspired by batting great Don Bradman, that won an Ashes 3-2. The fourth Ashes Test begins on July 19 at Old Trafford in Manchester.
