Ashes 2019: England v Australia fourth Test, day five – live!
Ok folks, I can just about hear the J of Jerusalem which means it’s time for me to vacate my seat and allow Geoff Lemon to take you through the morning session.

Stuart Broad’s domination of David Warner has been one of the enduring storylines of the summer, as Ali Martin reports.
Warner has done some remarkable things in the longest format. There have been 21 hundreds. One of them was the rare beast that is a century before lunch – a 78-ball blitz against Pakistan at the Sydney Cricket Ground – while three times he has passed three-figures in both innings.
But this summer, after a bumper return in the World Cup, Warner has been kept down by Broad. In eight innings the right-armer has had his number six times. Only once has Warner made it past double figures and in that instance, the gritty 61 on the opening day at Headingley, it involved several heavy slices of fortune with ball doing too much under leaden skies.
