England vs Australia LIVE score: Latest Ashes scorecard from first day of fourth Test


 The captivating Ashes battle between England and Australia resumes as the fourth Test begins at Old Trafford with Ben Stokes, Jofra Archer and Steve Smith ready to resume their starring roles  The battle for the urn is locked at 1-1 with two games to play after Stokes’ heroics at Headingley pulled the hosts back from the cliff edge, a stunning unbeaten century guiding England to a one-wicket win that instantly earned its status as one of the greatest Tests in history  Ordinarily, the chance to see the Durham all-rounder pick up where he left off – relentlessly raining sixes down on a wilting Australia attack – would be the only show in town, but this is no ordinary contest  Instead, there will be equal intrigue on the resumption of the compelling tussle between Smith and Archer, the latter having been felled by a 92mph bouncer to the neck at Lord’s with a subsequent concussion ruling him out of the last match  Not for the first time this summer, there is a palpable sense of excitement around the England side   Follow the latest scorecard from the Ashes fourth Test day one right here:
