Bet Live: Fourth Ashes Test

England v. Australia, Fourth Ashes Test, starting Friday August 9.

With England assured of holding on to The Ashes following a rained out third test in Manchester, the biggest news in the lead-up to the fourth test in Durham has been the reported dropping of Monty Panesar after he was caught urinating on a pair of nightclub bouncers.

England lead the best-of-five series 2-0, but will hold on to The Ashes urn even in the unlikely event that Australia manages to tie the series with wins in the final two tests. Nonetheless, the English will be wary after the Aussies had them on the ropes at Old Trafford last week before the weather intervened.

Australia selected fast bowler Jackson Bird ahead of first test hero Ashton Agar in their 12-man squad. The Australian selectors were expected to make a last-minute decision on whether to bring Bird into the starting XI ahead of injury-prone 33-year-old Ryan Harris.
