Andrew Flintoff

England suffered a blow before the fourth Ashes Test started with Andrew Flintoff not fit to play. England lead the series 1-0 with two matches left.

The coin toss at Headingley

England captain Andrew Strauss won the toss at Headingley, giving him the choice of batting or bowling. Strauss decided England would bat first, but was it the right decision?

Not for Strauss it wasn't! He was out for just three runs, thanks to a wonder catch from Australia's Marcus North off the bowling of Brett Hilfenhaus.

Australia players celebrate

And things just kept getting worse for England. They lost three more wickets in quick succession with Ravi Bopara, Ian Bell and Paul Collingwood all out before lunch!

Stuart Broad

And things didn't improve for England as they limped towards 100 runs. Stuart Broad was out for three, Graeme Swann for 0 and Steve Harmison for 0.

Graham Onions

England's innings ended not long after that, with Graham Onions the last man out. They team were all out for 102. From that position it will be really hard to avoid defeat.

Ricky Ponting

Australia batted much better than England, quickly moving past their total. Ricky Ponting hit a half century as his side built up a big lead.

Stuart Broad

England did hit back with some late wickets, but Australia still ended the first day with a big lead of 94 runs. They finished the day's play on 196-4.
