Sky Cricket Podcast: Mikey Holding on Ben Stokes' five-for

Ricky Ponting predicts a shake-up for Australia post-Ashes...

Stuart Broad was England's bowling hero on Thursday, taking a stonking 8-15 as Australia were skittled for a paltry 60.

But Ben Stokes took over the mantle on Friday, seizing a second Test-match five-for to leave Alastair Cook's side on the brink of regaining The Ashes urn.

On the latest Sky Cricket podcast, Mikey Holding analyses Stokes' spell - during which the seamer found plenty of swing - and also explains why the England attack's tiredness possibly cost them a two-day victory.

Elsewhere, former Australia captain Ricky Ponting ponders the future for a host of Australia's Ashes squad, saying as many as eight of them may move on from Test cricket at the end of the tour.

Ponting also discusses the slip-catching demo he took part in alongside Nasser Hussain and Michae Atherton on Friday morning, and how England have caught at Trent Bridge.
