Unlike the first three days, day four at Trent Bridge did not throw up an obvious hero in the style of Peter Siddle, Ashton Agar or Ian Bell.
This was a day of workmanlike performances, a day for hard graft and teamwork as both sides attempted to grind out a winning position.
It was a day for gritty determintaion rather than showmanship and no one has displayed greater perseverance than our Man of the Day Chris Rogers.
The Australian batsman scored his maiden Test half century at the age of 35 and looked set to score a potentially match-winning innings.
He was undone by the guile of James Anderson and England bowling coach David Saker, whose plan of luring Rogers into driving at a slow off break worked perfectly.
But Rogers has finally arrived as a Test batsman - and he looks like hanging around for a while yet.
