England bowler show their aggression as they dominated Aussies batting line up.



Out-of-form old hands Stuart Broad and Alastair Cook have found their mojo at the MCG, where England reached 1-72 at tea on day two of the fourth Ashes Test. Broad snared 4-51, his best figures in over a year, to help inflict a collapse of 7-67 and bowl the hosts out for 327 on Wednesday.

Cook was 37 not out at the end of the post-lunch session, already equalling his highest score of the series. The veterans have been among the tourists' worst performers in the opening three Tests, during which Australia banked big wins to claim an unassailable 3-0 lead in the series. Cook has a long way to go if he is to bat England into a position of dominance but the former skipper has scored runs with far more ease compared to any other game this summer.

Nathan Lyon trapped in front to a wonderful swinging delivery from Anderson. The Aussie spinner reviews it but it's more in hope than anything else. It's a disappointing end with Australia losing 7 wickets today for 83 runs. Full credit to England and Anderson and Broad in particular for getting the ball to move. Anderson was getting some great reverse swing at the end of Australia's innings. The Aussies will be hoping they can make the ball sing too.
