England vs Australia – Ashes 4th Test: Start time, live stream, TV channel, and teams from Old Trafford – The Sun
THE Ashes crosses the Pennines to Manchester after Ben Stokes' Headingley heroics kept the fight for the urn alive.
The England all-rounder's innings was arguably one of the greatest Test knocks of all time and levelled the series at 1-1 as Joe Root's side pulled off a pulsating one-wicket victory.
Australia need to pick themselves up after the disappointment of losing despite bowling the hosts out for just 67 in the first innings in Leeds.
When is the Ashes 4th Test?

What is the team news?
AFTER missing Headingley because of a concussion, Aussie star batsman Steve Smith is set to return to the team.
Marnus Labuschagne was a more than capable replacement at No4 and the Australian selectors may drop the out-of-form Usman Khawaja to accommodate him in the struggling batting lineup.
All-time wicket taker Jimmy Anderson has lost his fitness battle after pulling up in the first Test at Edgbaston and will miss the rest of the series.
There are still question marks over Jason Roy and his suitability for the long-form of the game, with Joe Denly moved to the opener position and Roy down to No4.
Craig Overton is the surprise replacement for Chris Woakes.
