Clarke says 'momentum' with Australia ahead of fourth Ashes Test at Chester-le-Street

Johannesburg, Aug 9 (ANI): Australian captain Michael Clarke has claimed that his side has the momentum before the fourth Ashes Test starts at Chester-le-Street on Friday, after the England side was stung by accusations of cheating and embarrassed by the off-field antics of a squad member.

According to Sport24, the tourists are 2-0 down with two matches remaining and have to wait until the return series in Australia at the end of the year for a chance to reclaim the urn but such was their dominance of the drawn third Test at Old Trafford that squaring the series is a realistic target for Michael Clarke's side

Clarke said that England would be taking the positive that they are 2-0 up in the series and can not lose the Ashes but the way Australia had played in Manchester, it had built some momentum for them.

Meanwhile, England captain Alastair Cook also said that the series was still very much alive, the report said. (ANI)
