No-ball agony mars Tom Curran's special day

No-ball agony mars Tom Curran's special day No-ball agony mars Tom Curran's special day

David Warner's century was a record-breaking one.

It was the first century against Australia since 2011 for Cook who had only passed 20 once this series before he got to Melbourne.

England bowler Tom Curran has been mocked by Sydney Trains on Twitter after having his first test wicket overturned thanks to a no-ball in the Boxing Day fourth Ashes Test. "But that's the pitch that we've got, and we've got to put up with it".

"It was disgusting, the worst feeling I've had, but looking at the positives, I get to get my first wicket twice", - a smiling Curran tries to stay upbeat in an interview with BT Sport.

"Obviously I had to bite back as I normally do".

Perhaps George Orwell was right after all; sport is war minus the shooting.

Not a bad series, but far from what we expect from one of the most risky cricketers in the world. But then cricket can be like that as Warner and Curran would no doubt agree.

Cook and Root are yet to bat England into a position of dominance but they are well placed to do so - with the visitors in their strongest position with the bat all series.

"He's just a freak", Warner said of Smith. Granted, he might smite sixes with savage simplicity but he can also strike silk-wrapped boundaries; he is, in short, the complete batsman.

Curran provided one positive for England on an otherwise disappointing day, but the rookie seamer was dramatically denied a memorable maiden Test scalp.

Cook's only other century for the year was his 243 against West Indies at Edgbaston in August, and England will hope he can continue his tendency to go large.

But Warner would finally fall for 103, having been reined in as England hit the brakes on the scoring rate, edging James Anderson to the keeper with a feather touch.

Curran's agony and Warner's reprieve was the one dramatic moment on a day which did little justice to stage the magnificent MCG set up, on a pitch where England found little joy and batsmen found runs hard currency.

Broad's spell helped England take the last seven Australia wickets for 67 runs, the home side slipping from their overnight 244-3 to 327 all out.

Usman Khawaja (17) ended Stuart Broad's long wait for a wicket after an innings marked by patient struggle.

It would have been the ideal first Test wicket, but just as Warner was walking back to the dressing room, the big screen offered him a lifeline as the umpire gave a no-ball; a dubious call, with some angles showing Curran's foot to be just on the line. For me, Moeen has struggled with a finger injury all tour and he was undercooked going into the series.
