Starc will replace James Pattinson in the side that lost in the third Test at Headingley, while Steve Smith returns from a concussion at the expense of the out-of-form Usman Khawaja.

Bar Stuart Broad's burst with the new ball, the home attack struggled to offer a sustained threat, matching the mood of a crowd which could not raise the atmosphere above the elements.

The increasingly blustery conditions led to numerous frustrating hold-ups, the umpires even dispensing with the bails at one point, and made life awkward for England's bowlers.

"We'll just have a look at Old Trafford. then work out the best way to win the Test", Langer said this week. "That's what Ashes cricket is all about". Australia were 170/3, having chosen to bat after winning the toss.

Both teams likely will tinker with their lineups as Australia needs one win from the two encounters to retain the Ashes. Make no mistake about it, Starc is a game-changing bowler who can make life hard with his swingers and yorkers.

Smith, who missed the third Test with concussion, notched up a record-extending eighth successive Ashes half-century to end the day 60 not out and take the tourists to 170-3.

England have shifted their much-maligned batting lineup, with batsman Jason Roy expected to shift to the no.4 position, while journeyman Joe Denly has slotted into the opening spot alongside Rory Burns. Vaughan tweeted, "Denly to Open". Another change has the 6-foot-5 Craig Overton fast bowler coming in for Chris Woakes.

'To see a full house at Headingley and on day four was probably the first time I've seen that for a long time, and to hear more than 15,000 tickets here have already been sold for day five... it's a great place to be. The West Indies was bundled out for 210 on the fourth day after being set the improbable target of 468 for victory.

Smith, a shining light for the tourists on a boring day in Manchester, was 60 not out in a stumps total of 170-3 on a rain-marred first day of the fourth Test where only 44 overs out of a scheduled 90 were bowled.

This was Overton's fourth Test but first in England. The 25-year-old is now only behind Cummins and South Africa's Kagiso Rabada.
