England pacers bring 'dead rubber' fourth Ashes Test back to life on second day

Melbourne, Dec 27 : England pacers have brought to life the 'dead rubber' fourth Ashes Test at the MCG on the second day by taking nine Australian wickets, leading the hosts to make 164 at close.

Australia is trailing by 91 runs with 1 wicket remaining in the first innings on the second day.

The England bowlers, especially James Anderson and Tim Bresnan, showed a fine effort on a sluggish pitch, which had just enough swing, both conventional and reverse, to keep the bowlers interested.
