Here we discuss the Day 4 overview, ENG vs AUS Day 5 Weather Forecast, and Pitch Report of Emirates Old Trafford, Manchester in this article.

With overcast conditions in England and the ball in the hand of Jimmy Anderson, what worst from this can Australia expect? But They batted really well under the weather. Australia reduced the overnight deficit and now they are 61 runs behind of England’s first-innings lead.

England bowled 30 overs where Labuschagne and Marsh had a superb partnership. They both played at a balanced rate of aggression and defense which helped Labuschagne to complete his century. Joe Root was the one who nicked Marnus off to end the stand. Due to bad lighting, England’s pacers were unable to bowl after the 58th over. Instead, the spin pair of Moeen and Root bowled 13 overs together before the tea break.

To tie the series, England need to take 5 wickets, but Marsh and Green have the power to hit a significant blow, score some rapid runs, and make up that gap. Yet again, rain is the only thing that matters.

Old Trafford has consistently provided good batting conditions with a pitch that makes it relatively simple for the ball to make it into the bat. Because teams who win the toss often decide to bat first, the team batting first has won the majority of games at this location. However, there is always room for an exception, as England is close to winning despite batting second.

As of now, the surface is quite dead. Almost no grass was left on the surface and it looks like England is losing their essence of being England in terms of pitches. The new ball did swing but once the ball gets old, there is nothing for a bowler in the surface. England need 6 more wickets to even the series 2-all but heavy rain is forecasted for day 5.
