A battling partnership between Alastair Cook and Kevin Pietersen saw England wrestle back crucial momentum after Australia's tenth wicket pair made history at Trent Bridge. 

The day began with England carving through the Australian lower order to leave the visitors reeling at 117-9 and facing an enormous first innings deficit. However, the coming together of Ashton Agar and Phillip Hughes proved a turning point in the Test. The tenth wicket pairing put on 163, a new Test record, to help carry Australia to an unlikely first innings lead of 65. 

When England were reduced to 11-2 with Jonathan Trott controversially being given out LBW for a golden duck, England were seemingly on the brink of disaster. However, Cook and Pietersen fought hard to see England to the close with a slender lead of just 15 runs.
