    DAILY TELEGRAPH:
    Ashes contests have struggled to live up to the sheer ding-dong nature of the 2005 series but Wednesday's play at Trent Bridge did a more than -passable impression, with 14 wickets falling and a bowler on each side having the opportunity of a hat-trick.

Exhilarating and exhausting in equal measure - and that just for those watching - England and Australia slugged it out on a day that had been expected to produce runs and instead saw the home side's batting succumb to the sheer endeavour of Peter Siddle, who took five for 50, and then the Australians stumble against the new ball.
