ENGLAND holds a commanding position in the fourth Ashes Test with Australia sitting perilously at 9-164 at stumps on day two at the MCG.


Stuart Broad dismissed Peter Siddle off the last ball of the day to leave Brad Haddin the not out batsman on 43, with Nathan Lyon to join him tomorrow morning.

Broad and fellow paceman James Anderson picked up three wickets each as Australia’s batsmen gave away their wickets in sometimes-similar ways to the English batsmen yesterday.

It was a very different story early on Friday, as Mitchell Johnson tour through the tourists’ tail to see England all out for 255.

But perhaps the biggest victory for both sides came in the MCG nets, as CCN talk show host and Twitter loud mouth Piers Morgan faced six balls from Brett Lee and failed to hit a single one of them.
