For example, in the third Test, a ball after the missed run-out, with England still needing two runs to win with only a wicket in hand, Lyon had a chance to be Australia's hero when he appeared to trap Ben Stokes in front. For Stokes, he will only derive satisfaction when he takes his side to an Ashes win.

Jack Leach and Ben Stokes combined to deliver one of England's most memorable test match victories last week, but the tail ender turned cult hero has lifted the lid on a odd new superstition to arise from their match-winning partnership. 'It was an incredible week in Headingley and something that will be very hard to forget, but we still have a long way to go.

The new Zealand born all rounder played a remarkable innings, putting on a whopping 76 run partnership with number 11 Jack Leach to propel England across the line.

The 28-year-old says England go into the fourth Test with a huge amount of belief after snatching victory from the jaws of defeat on Sunday.

Taylor Swift's Cornelia Street landlord 'didn't know who she was'
Lover is Taylor's fourth album to reach Number 1 in the United Kingdom , following Red (2012), 1989 (2014) and Reputation (2017). In the midst of all these pop songs, Swift also includes some ballads, like the title track Lover and The Archer .

Archer believes that Australia have lost a bit of confidence after losing the third Test and hence will be more defensive in order to retain the urn.

He said: "The crowd were so, so loud and they were during the whole four days". In fact Newcastle United manager Steve Bruce jokingly said that Stokes can play for the Magpies next week in the wake of club's 1-0 win over Tottenham Hotspur. We have an fantastic support and I didn't get told until after about everyone taking their shoes off, but they are your 12th man.

"I think we are very aware as a team and as players that we have a responsibility to inspire the next generation of cricketers".
