Birmingham: England batsman Ian Bell thinks the Ashes will "go right to the wire" and has acknowledged Australia are likely to be a stronger proposition for the fourth Test at Trent Bridge following their humbling at Edgbaston.

"We fully expect Australia to come back hard, if not harder, and this is going to go right to the wire," Bell said on BBC Radio 5 Live's Sportsweek programme. England lead five-match series 2-1.
