Stuart Broad frustrated Australia, who were desperately looking for wickets, on the morning of Day 4. The tailender scored 32 of 66 balls to cut down on Australia's lead.
Matt Prior was the key as England successfully avoided the follow-on. He scored a patient 30 and was the last man dismissed.
Peter Siddle was once again the star of the show for Australia with the ball, ending with first innings figures of 4/63.
Australia sent David Warner to open in the quest for runs and he was greeted by a hostile Old Trafford crowd. Warner top-scored with 41 before play was called off with Australia at 172/7.
Warner was ultimately caught by Joe Root - yes, wou heard that right! "Couldn't believe I hooked another one to Rooty," he said after the 4th day's play.
Michael Clarke was furious that the umpire took the players off for bad light. Clarke questioned the umpires but ultimately rain meant that play was not possible.
