England wins the 4th Test by 3 wickets to go 2-1 up in the series.
England made a mess of their 129-run chase and finally scampered to a 3-wicket victory.

Australia...1st Innings...218 all out
Australia...2nd Innings...(f-o)..387 all out
England...2nd Innings...129/7

Big battles are won by small soldiers and Gary Pratt's run out of Ricky Ponting may well be the turning point of this Ashes series.

Australia, following-on after being bowled out for 218 in their first innings, were 222 for 4 at stumps on the 3rd day of the 4th Ashes test at Trent Bridge in Nottingham.

The Australians need an 'Adam Gilchrist' special to set England a competitive total to chase.

Scores:
England....1st Innings...477 all out
Australia...1st Innings...218 all out
Australia...2nd Innings...222/4 - Sat., 3rd Day, 4th Test

Update: 08:41 p.m. IST
England need 129 to win the 4th Test.
Australia....2nd Innings...387 all out
