He lost his wicket to Mitchell Starc after scoring 24 runs of 67 balls.

England lost both their Marquee player of the series, Root and Malan are now in pavalion, probably along England’s hope to save the match.

Ben Stokes is still on the pitch and England still have batsmen like Ollie Pope, Jos Buttler and Chris Woakes.

The only issue is none of them has performed that promisingly. Ben Stokes once did bat for hours and helped England draw match in the Ashes.

If England somehow can bat for almost 90 overs, they can save the match and they can pray that weather or light help them reduce some overs from the day.

These are the only possible way English side can pull this off, otherwise it’s an easy win for Aussies.

England by the end of stump day 4 are batting on 82 runs at the loss of 4 wickets. Ben Stokes is still on the pitch.
