England were 178 runs from a stunning comeback victory in the second Ashes test after James Anderson grabbed five wickets and Joe Root steered the tourists to 176 for four at close of play on an extraordinary fourth day Tuesday.Root, who eked out a half century under the Adelaide Oval lights, will probably need to stay out in the sun for much of the fifth day if he is to lead England to a first test win in Australia in nearly seven years.Root, cheered on by the vocal Barmy Army of England fans, made the most of the reprieve and reached his 50 with a lovely back cut for four, one of nine boundaries he peppered throughout his 114-ball knock.
