Ashes Day 4 (sorry, was out day 3 enjoying the sunshine
)Ashes: Cook and Strauss hit tons as England fight back
Openers Andrew Strauss and Alastair Cook both hit centuries as England fought back superbly on day four of the first Ashes Test at the Gabba.
England had resumed 202 runs behind on 19-0 with Australia sensing victory.
But Strauss (110) put on 188 with Cook (132 not out) in an English record stand at Brisbane, and Cook then added 121 with Jonathan Trott (54 not out).
The tourists went to stumps on 309-1 and lead the Aussies by 88 runs, with the draw looking the likely outcome. http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport2/hi/cricket/9235444.stm
I didn't think it possible after days 1 and 2 but great stuff today by Strauss and Cook
Trott not doing badly either
