Australia are four wickets down at tea in their second innings on the second day of the fourth Ashes test at Trent Bridge.

Chris Rogers brought up his half-century before being dismissed for 52 with Joe Root taking a stunning catch off a Ben Stokes corker.

Then, in the next over, David Warner brought up his fifty with a top-edged six but didn't last much longer than that after scooping a Stokes ball into the air for Stuart Broad to take a comfortable catch, the left-hander departing for 64.

Steven Smith went for five as Stokes returned the favour for Broad with a catch and Shaun Marsh managed just two after being caught at slip by Root from Stokes.

Australia are 138-4 and trail by 193 runs.
