BBC Sport in The Oval
Joe Denly missed out on a maiden century but nevertheless helped England to a match-winning place on the next day of the final Ashes Test against Australia at The Oval.
Two days after his wife gave birth opener Denly forced 94 to all but secure his place to the winter trips of England.
After being dropped on nought about the evening, the Kent guy should have been awarded lbw on 54 into Mitchell Marsh for Australia to opt against an inspection.
After sharing a stand of 127 with Ben Stokes, who oozed class because of his 26,, he was caught at slip off Peter Siddle.
Before a late Australia progress left England 313-8, 382 17, jos Buttler sparkled in his 47.
With two days and the pitch beginning to show indications of twist, England are primed to level the series.
Defeat here would refuse them a first series win in England since 2001, Although Australia have retained the Ashes.
The home side are also looking to avoid a home loss to anybody in five decades.
On a day in south west London, England Use the benign states to put together among the best batting displays of the Exam summer.
Some hindsight that was Australian has, however, aided them.
Tim Paine’s decision to field first is appearing increasingly more difficult too the selection of Siddle over Mitchell Starc. The vacationers have dropped five catches and always failed in their usage of this inspection system.
But this is to take nothing away from Denly, who had already batted at number three and three before being asked to open.
He has indicated he has a future at this level by creating his third consecutive half-century.
There were minutes during the day. As did Ben Stokes and David Warner, that had been goaded from the fielders Joe Root and matthew Wade exchanged words. Nathan Lyon chatted always.
The home supporters responded in the behalf of their team, especially.
Cult hero Jack Leach’s England batting, Aussie late and baiting entrance gave the audience one more enjoyable day at a summer that is all but at an end.
As he made 14 on the very first 20, denly’s spouse Stacy was in the early phases of labor. He returned only since the father to another child and left the ground.
Australia assisted him observe with a pair of let-offs, which Denly accepted by enjoying strokes the ground and square of the wicket on the off side to get his next half-century in as many Tests.
He used his toes against Lyon, such as lofting a direct six, and has been dogged enough to endure a few painful blows in the bowlers.
Denly put the tone for Rory Burns and Joe Root to perform freely in the early hours, but later both dropped into Lyon, Stokes came to continue his fine form.
The Durham all-rounder also profited from being dropped – by slide Steve Smith away Lyon on seven – and went on to sweep the bowler for six and swat at another max off the leg-spin of Marnus Labuschagne.
A beauty from Lyon that turned aggressively, while Denly got an one from Siddle that nipped off and resulted to Smith bowled stokes.
With his head bringing himself to raise his bat he departed.
Australia will leave the UK with all the urn for the first time in 18 years, but skipper Paine stated the series triumph meant so much to those that this match was a”grand final”. This was.
In addition to neglected reviews, selection, drops and the toss, their superb matching of Hazlewood and Pat Cummins needed a rare ineffective day.
Lyon is currently struggling with damage to his turning finger – not that he will gain sympathy. He did have Burns Root made the ripper to accounts for Stokes, held at slip and, later.
He was likewise the bowler when another opportunity to use the review system was missed by the tourists. Buttler could have been lbw on 19.
It took until the embers of the day for Australia to sparkle. First Smith jumped length to shoot Chris Woakes one-handed at second slip next ball square leg Labuschagne dived ahead to hold a yanking Buttler millimetres over the turf and ran.
Former England captain Michael Vaughan:”I composed Joe Denly away, and many did. But I like players that have that inner power to prove people wrong. He got last 7, lost on nought and he must have been thinking he needed to make it count.
“He played so well. He also kept his hands and when there are quality bowlers and a bit of motion, if you perform with palms away from the body, you’re likely to get noticed.
“He played with much greater control and had a forward defence.
“Australia have looked sloppy and tired. England have capitalised on Tim Paine’s choice in the toss and played with an excellent match of cricket up to now.”
England batsman Joe Denly, speaking to TMS:”It was great, nice to find that score and disappointing to not reach the milestone.
“But we’re in a terrific position going into day four and that’s the major thing.
“I wasn’t thinking in my place on the winter tours, I was just hoping to occupy the crease and when I did this scoring opportunities would come”
