England is on course for defeat in the first Ashes Test at Edgbaston after losing four wickets before lunch to sit 85-4 in their second innings on day five, still 313 runs behind Australia.

Chasing the second-highest successful run chase in Ashes history, England first-innings centurion Rory Burns fell first in the second over of the day for 11. The highest successful run chase ever was Australia getting 404 at Headingley in 1948. On-field umpire Joel Wilson's poor test continued after Joe Root was twice saved on review, meaning eight of Wilson's decisions have been overturned in this test before a disaster from Jason Roy saw him bowled for 28.

Joe Denly (11) was next to go, this time a review did not come to his rescue, but the key wicket of captain Joe Root (28), at the hand of Nathan Lyon, put Australia within sight of a first Edgbaston win in 18 years.
