MANCHESTER – England somehow need to produce a second 'miracle' if they are to avoid Australia retaining the Ashes with victory in the fourth test at Old Trafford.
Yet coach Trevor Bayliss believes they can reproduce the spirit of their remarkable comeback in the third test at Headingley and at least grind out a draw.
England need another 365 runs to win with eight wickets remaining heading into the final day and they will resume with Jason Roy and Joe Denly at the crease.
Joe Root's side had chased down a record target of 359 in dramatic fashion in Leeds, but they had started the day only needing 203.
"Anything is possible. We saw that in the last test match," said Bayliss.
