LIVE Ashes: Khawaja's "Eye of the Tiger" moment, while legends lament Poms ‘" Cardinal Sin "in an even fight (Author: Gardener)

AustraliaShane Warne believes Usman Khawaja is expecting a big result on day two, while Adam Gilchrist has urged England to straighten their bases in an even fight. The fourth test is close to the second day at SCG, with Australia resuming on 3-126 from 46.5 overs with Steve Smith (6 *) and Usman Khawaja (4 *) at the end. Experience every moment of The Ashes live and ad-free during the game on Kayo. New to Kayo? Try now for 14 days free of charge. It was a frustrating first day with four rain delays which meant just over half of the 90 overs at the Sydney Cricket Ground were rolled. Australia will regret not being able to convert their starts into big scores as David Warner, 30, Marcus Harris (38) and Marnus Labuschagne (28) all failed to make any profits. James Anderson was again the English bowler's pick 1-24 out of 13 overs on day one, while Stuart Broad had 1-34 aside on his return, including the wicket of his rabbit David Warner for the 13th time in Test cricket. Warne believes the game is level and England have a real chance of knocking Australia over for less than 300 on day two. NEW PODCAST - "A Contest Would Be Nice": Ultimate SCG Test Preview OR SUBSCRIBE TO ITUNES OR SPOTIFY "I think it's one of those pitches that you never think you're safe," Warne told Fox Cricket. “I think England will have to set the tone on the second day. Green struggles a bit and hasn't done a lot of runs and Carey is looking for his first big one and then the bowlers. "So they're just a few wickets away from a real chance of knocking Australia over for 250 or 300. If they can, they're right in the game." However, Gilchrist urged England to stop being poor at the fundamentals of the game if they are to keep the pressure on Australia.

Get the right bowler bowling at the start. "If you lay that foundation, you can benefit all day." Meanwhile, the second day offers veteran Khawaja the perfect opportunity to show that Gilchrist says he still has what it takes to be a test batsman. "It's a great opportunity to show that he still has the class and talent, determination and hunger to perform at this level," said Gilchrist. “I think everyone will expect Travis Head to come back for the next friendly and he deserves it.

"I think that's part of the game he's been working on for the last few years, his effort against the spin." Warne believes Khawaja has a steely look and expects a big blow from him at the SCG on day two. "I think back to the 1990s and early 2000s when Australia had such a strong team and Australia had a team that you had to grab if you got an opportunity," said Warne. “If you don't get it, you will be skipped in the chopping order and I think Australia is in a really good position now, with some depth in bowling and hitting. “Today Khawaja looked like he had a bit of the“ eye of the tiger ”. I think he looks like he's ready to go, so I'm expecting a big one from him tomorrow. ”However, the impending bad weather could play a role on the second day of rain as well, so Australia and England take their risks on the field have to if they want to force a result in the next four days.

England battles Australia in the fourth Sydney Test on a rain-stricken day

EnglandSTUART BROAD briefly took himself and England back to happier times when he fired David Warner in Test cricket for the 13th time. Broad had misled Warner for 30 years, and for a moment we could have been transported into 2019 when he inflicted all kinds of fear on the Australian opener. It was a fleeting moment of joy for England amid the rubble of the past few weeks and this is, of course, a dead rubber match. But England managed two more wickets before the end of a rain-disrupted opening day of the fourth Test and could claim to have had one of their better days in the series. The other two wickets came when Jimmy Anderson coaxed an edge from left-hander Marcus Harris and Joe Root held the catch on the first slip. Broad was controversially - and wrongly - left out of the first test in Brisbane. In fact, Broad only played one of the first three Tests, and that was in Adelaide, where conditions were giving little support to his seam bowling. He's been talking about his frustration for the past few days, even hinting that he may have to make a decision about his future as an international cricketer. The game started 30 minutes late due to a rain shower and overall the game was divided into four separate parts due to the weather. Reigning head coach Graham Thorpe described Broad and Ben Stokes as "caged tigers" before the game. For a while it looked like the whole team had been given a reassurance arrow as it took England some time between rain showers to go full throttle. But Broad pumped his knees during his second spell and looked very dangerous at times. Conditions were overcast and damp, pitch green, but England tended to bow too short when the ball was about to swing. Warner narrowly passed a diving Zak Crawley on Stokes on the second slip and then deployed a cover drive to the border two deliveries later. But Broad edged Warner from his preferred round-the-wicket angle, and Crawley caught the hook. England had favorable bowling conditions in the evening session when the floodlights were on and the atmosphere was muggy. Anderson was neat and Wood made a neat treat. England will need more advances early on day two to get themselves into a winning position.

Wood offers England the X-Factor to shake Australia

WET HUSSAIN: Whatever the conditions and whenever he plays, Wood is a fabulous cricketer not only because of the pace but also because he always plays with a smile on his face. (Author: Gardener)

EnglandMark Wood has this talent for bringing out good players and he was impressive again on day one when he sacked Marnus Labuschagne for the second straight year in this Ashes. Wood just has that little bit extra to shake up the best players, as he has shown by causing problems for Labuschagne and Steve Smith on that series, and the way he carried on in Australia was a massive advantage for England. It is unlucky that it is always used in the flattest places when that little something extra is needed. Absolute joy for Mark Wood when he conquered the wicket of Marnus Labuschagne on the first day. Wood is congratulated after his efforts were rewarded with the key wicket on the late opening day so surprisingly that he did not play on the flattest field of the series in Adelaide. But no matter what the conditions and whenever he plays, Wood is a fabulous cricketer, not only because of the pace, but also because he always plays with a smile on his face. Stuart Broad also showed why he could have easily played during these Ashes by circling the wicket and getting David Warner out in a familiar manner for the 13th time in Test Cricket. Woods Bowling gives England an extra x-factor, especially on the shallowest courses that Stuart Broad sacked David Warner on the first day in Test Cricket for the 13th time and Anderson this Ashes, but Warner will be delighted to have him has only played in Adelaide so far. Especially considering how the space and conditions were in Brisbane. England held up their task quite well on Matchday 1, but it could be argued that with the new ball they were a little closer again. There was movement in the top on a stop-start day when bowling conditions were good, but England hesitated to take the risk of being driven. Root brought Harris to a crucial point in the game for his team in need of a wicket. The three wickets were all the perfect length for edging, two of them came after England managed to change a wet and soft ball. The replacement ball stopped moving, but it was just a little harder and slipped a little - and England held all catches for once. Those late wickets brought England back into the game and it was all about honors even at the end of the first day.

SydneyThe Ashes: England takes two wickets in the final session to check Australia's progress in Sydney The Ashes: England takes two wickets in the final session to check Australia's progress in Sydney England got the fourth in the final session on a rainy day Ashes twice hit test to curb Australia's advances in Sydney.

Anderson and Wood sacked their wickets after the ball was switched midway through the 30th half before Usman Khawaja (4 no of 22) and Steve Smith (6 no of 23) steered Australia to stumps about 35 minutes early after one more rain showers came. Stuart Broad, who was called back to England instead of the injured Ollie Robinson, dismissed David Warner (30) from tests for the 13th time when he left the prelude near the wicket behind him after lunch. England are 3-0 down in the five-game series and are now trying to avoid a 5-0 win, with Australia holding the Ashes last time in Melbourne with a win in innings and 14 runs. Joe Root's team were unable to win a wicket in the opening session, which was limited to 12.3 overs due to the initial rain, as Australia reached 30-0 after being elected as the bat. Broad, however, removed Warner for the eighth time in his last seven Tests against Australia after the break - Zak Crawley devoured the chance of the second slip when Broad snapped an opening partnership of 51 between Warner and Harris. Broad had been described as a "caged tiger" by English assistant coach Graham Thorpe before the game in Sydney after only making one appearance on the series. The 35-year-old was unable to build on his breakthrough, the game was later interrupted due to rain due to balls and only resumed at 5.20 a.m. British time - then Harris and Labuschagne brought the hosts in a fairly quiet position from 56-1 to 111-1 fashion , as their second wicket booth has been expanded to 60. England bounced back from drinks, hitting twice as many overs, with Anderson and Wood making up Harris and Labuschagne respectively. Harris cut a ball from Anderson that crossed it on the second slip to Root, while Labuschagne snapped Wood's back-of-a-length delivery to wicket keeper Jos Buttler. Khawaja came out in 5th place for Australia, the 35-year-old made his first test appearance since 2019 as a replacement for Travis Head, who was hit by Covid. Thorpe will be fairly pleased with the first day's work in Sydney as his side try to recover from heavy defeats in Brisbane, Adelaide and Melbourne - the last of which Australia kept the urn. Stuart Broad sacked David Warner for the 13th time in Test cricket - only one Australian batsman was sacked multiple times by a certain English bowler in Test cricket, Arthur Morris fell 18 times to Alec Bedser. James Anderson becomes the first player to have completed at least one test wicket in 20 consecutive years (2003-2022). Anderson is now alone in second place for most test caps. Australia's opener David Warner: “I really enjoy telling you a good story that is fantastic and that builds up the game. England's fast bowler Mark Wood: “You want to try to compete with the best players. But when you get big wickets like [Labuschagne and Smith] it definitely makes you very happy. "Wood in conversation with BT Sport:" It was a tough day, getting those wickets in the end certainly helped and it was overall a good day . I thought that since the field is green it would do a little more, but as we found out in Australia the ball won't do anything and then one of them will go and you can get your wickets.

England bowlers gather against Australia on the rain-interrupted opening day

Rain was the main instigator on the opening day of the fourth test, which ended evenly (Author: Gardener)

EnglandBut 13 days after an Ashes series in which the urn was settled in 12, England was finally able to leave an Australian field and feel content with their lot. They actually sprinted with the latest rain on a humid opening day at the Sydney Cricket Ground at 6:27 p.m. local time. Australia, which apparently had control of the majority of the 46.5 overs watched by a patient crowd of 25,000, had two fresh thugs in the middle at the time - Steve Smith and the returning Usman Khawaja - and ended with less conclusive 126 for three. Given that Joe Roots' tourists had easily stumbled upon this fourth test, ears were ringing after the existential fears eruption that followed their 68 in Melbourne and their preparations to be affected by a Covid-19 outbreak on the coaching staff Mini-fightback of two wickets in the space of seven balls was a blessing. At one point it looked like Stuart Broad's earlier removal from David Warner would be their only success. It was Jimmy Anderson, armed with a spare kookaburra ball and convincing root thanks to the damp conditions, who also detonated it, and Marcus Harris flew past with a good length over the wicket for 38 in the 40th, being the first flew underpants. Harris doesn't always project consistency thanks to his bouncing trigger movement, but for the previous 108 balls the left-handed appeared calm. He cut and drove the ball well, hinting that a second consecutive innings of substance was brewing. Nelson had struck here, Australia 111 for two, and then there was a sequel from Mark Wood almost immediately. For the second time in 10 balls in this series, England's fastest bowler Marnus Labuschagne had cut off by walking over the archway, cornering the ball and getting a hint of movement away. The world's no. 1 batsman, who had reached an airy 60 with Harris, had his chewing gum burst for a 59-ball 28, which also promised more. The arrival of locally raised Khawaja, 10 years after making his test debut on the site arguably sparked the biggest cheer of the day, and when he prettily pulled Wood for four to hit the mark, viewers had a nice picture lingering when they did finally filtered out. Four years later, after various farewells to Anderson and Broad were written in the Australian newspapers, the old company was reunited with the SCG, the latter fresh from displeasure over the recent absences. But there was no impact with the new ball, Anderson's initial rattle of Warner's glove with one that was jagged backwards, followed by 12 less threatening overs that Australia saw 30 for one in the first break in the rain. When he resumed after lunch, however, Broad claimed the breakthrough, bringing back memories of the Ashes of 2019 and his dominance from Warner when he got close to the wicket to get one to slip on 30 second. To mitigate the talk about bunnies or back pockets, this was the first time since the 2013-14 series that Broad had removed Warner in Australia, but the question still arose as to why their rematch hadn't started in Brisbane. By and large, England was a bit shabby when Harris and Labushagne accepted their alliance of 51 for one. Wood's numbers on the speedgun were impressive, but his radar didn't always match this one, while Ben Stokes, who often tires the ball in such humid conditions, bowled with no apparent plan. Extras, England's third top scorer with the bat in 2021, still let them down in the field, Stokes crossing three times and a total of 12 runs leaked. But shortly after sunshine broke for the first time that day, bringing with it hopes of a game by 7pm that were eventually dashed prematurely, Anderson shook his side with the removal of Harris from her torpor. The 39-year-old recently said this would likely be his last tour of Australia, but the locals are forgiven for being skeptical here.

"A strange couple, but it works": Sangeeta looks back on 12 years with Fred Dinenage

When Fred Dinenage resigns from the regional news, his co-host Sangeeta Bhabra has been thinking about working with the legendary broadcaster for over 12 years | ITV news meridian (Author: Gardener)

Fred DinenageI don't think anyone really forgets when they first meet Fred. I was a Newbury-based bulletin producer invited to a party at the great Meridian studios in Northam, Southampton. It was in 2002, my first 'showbiz' trip to the place where classic programs like Worzel Gummidge (I'm a kid of the 80s) were filmed and a group of us who had just started our TV journeys stood excitedly queuing for a picture next to How Fred's husband was courteous as always, asked a little about us and then it was time for the next picture. I was with Meridian for a few years when the shows for the South, Southeast and Thames Valley were being broadcast from a brand new digital complex in Hampshire. I used to see Fred in the elevator or in the parking lot and always tried to be natural by raising my hand in his typical way to acknowledge him. Like every move, it was an interesting time. Meridian colleagues who knew each other but didn't really know each other slowly got to know - let's call them - "Newsroom characters". I was obviously the shy and reserved Berkshire reporter who occasionally stopped by to present bulletins. You won't be surprised that I am happy to enter and always announce my arrival in the new, open building. Most people would like to ignore me, but my disappointment at the lack of attention always amused Fred. Our interactions didn't really go beyond that, so I never would have thought in a million years that one day I would sit next to Fred. But we came together on February 9th, 2009 as an onscreen partnership and presented our first Meridian Tonight. ITV's regional news had gone through a major reorganization, creating new ways of working and new presentation teams across the country. But it works. ”Just before we did our first show together, we were sent across the region to shoot a short commercial with“ Fred and Sangeeta ”. We were both cold, tired (and I'm definitely not a fan of elevation gain) so Fred pointed to the sea to distract me and said, “Is that Folkestone?” Since I couldn't pretend interest, I immediately replied, “Me Don't you know, I'm from Reading. ”That's a story Fred likes to tell. Presenting television when done well looks natural, engaging, and simple. In my early days, I regularly stumbled upon my words. Fred never made mistakes and I watched in awe and felt like I wasn't good enough. Fred always reassured me with "Sang, we come through thousands of words every day". I also often looked into the wrong camera. Until last week he will get me to look in the right direction by gently saying "to two sang". Fred has done this hundreds of times in the past 12 years and 10 months. We spent thousands of hours in our little studio box surrounded by the brilliant Meridian team. Fred and I have shared difficult news and uplifting stories, attended major events, and been involved in exciting outside broadcasts. We've dragged each other through difficult times, but the show always came first, especially for Fred. We got our daily Fred update on the wonderful things our viewers did to get through this terrible time. Fred's chatter, laughs, stories have fueled the Meridian newsroom and of course all of the ITV franchises in the south for the past 40 years. Viewers still keep me from talking about coast to coast and day in and day out. Today marks the end of a broadcast era in southern England as Fred uses his time to start a new chapter. It is definitely not retirement. He's still doing the new look How! on ITV, while he is working on a new book, his Murder Casebook series will continue and it will mean more time for his charity projects and his beautiful family and grandchildren. But after today he won't be sitting next to me at 6. Today has come the day that I knew was coming. Time to say thank you and celebrate the work of a great network. Your Fred!
