England slide further while still being in the arrears. For the second time in this Test, Pat Cummins got Ben Stokes squaring up to a ball angled into his body. The edge was snaffled at gully by Cameron Green. It has been a prolific morning for Australia, who still lead by 12 runs. The keeper-bat also fell shortly thereafter as his nick carried to Alex Carey off Josh Hazlewood. England’s lower-order needs to step up and show a bit of mitigation if they are to set Australia a respectable target, although their hopes are hanging by a thread.
Number seven for Australia, who are running rampant!
Josh Hazlewood finds the edge of Jos Buttler!
