On the Ashes, Ravichandran Ashwin took to Twitter to express his thoughts.

Ashwin suggested the crowd could be in for the “most happening 5th Day” if England wins the first session on Day 4 in the maiden Ashes Test against Australia in Brisbane.

India off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin was satisfied with the way things transpired on Day 3 of the first Ashes Test between Australia and England at the Gabba in Brisbane. Root and Malan led England back from the brink of defeat in the final two sessions of this Test match, which had been dominated by India’s batsmen. At stumps, England reached 220/2, behind Australia by 58 runs. On the other hand, Root was unbeaten on 86, while Malan was on 80.

Ashwin suggested the spectators could be in for the “most happening 5th Day” if England wins the opening session on Day 4. All action is taking place at the Gabba, and tomorrow’s opening session, assuming England triumphs, might be the most exciting of the tournament’s five days, tweeted Ashwin.

Day 2 began with Australia hammering home the advantage as Travis Head chalked up his 150. Resuming the day at 343 for 7, Australia concluded with 425 with Head top-scoring with 152. England, who was knocked out for 147 on the first day, began their second innings behind Australia by 278 runs. They lost starter Rory Burns when the scoreboard showed 23 and soon Haseeb Hamid too was dismissed for 27.

61 for two was the score when Root and Malan teamed up for England. The experienced combatants displayed remarkable patience against Pat Cummins and Nathan Lyon to bat into the last session.

Root also beat Michael Vaughan’s record for most runs scored by an English hitter in a calendar year on Friday, when he smashed the most runs in the longest version of the game.

In the second innings, despite a duck in the first, England captain Alastair Cook produced a brilliant fifty to outshine Michael Vaughan.

Root came within one run of matching Vaughan’s 2002 total of 1481 runs when he hit 1477. In the first Test on Friday, England skipper Alastair Cook finally overtook Michael Vaughan in the batting rankings.
