Kevin Pietersen claimed a key wicket with the last ball of the day following his earlier heroics with the bat to give England real encouragement in their pursuit of victory in the second Ashes Test in Adelaide. The batsman, who scored a career-best Test score of 227 to help England to 620 for five declared, struck with his occasional spin, removing Michael Clarke for 80 after he had looked to be in for the long haul alongside Mike Hussey. The fourth-wicket pair had given Australia, set 375 to make England bat again, hope of forcing a draw but the dismissal of Clarke gives the tourists added impetus heading into the final day of the match. Australia closed on 238 for four and were left hoping that the forecast adverse weather comes to their aid in a bid to keep the series level.
