The MCG crowd went berserk as the top of middle stumps is disturbed. Mitchell Starc breaches Ben Stokes’s defence as England lose their fifth wicket in the early hours of day three. Jonny Bairstow was then dropped by Cameron Green in gully, but Scott Boland had him trapped leg-before in the same over. Australia would be thrilled to strike twice given that England had fought back valiantly, winning two sessions out of three to restrict the hosts to 267 on day two after being bundled out for 185 in the first innings.
That’s come back a LONG way!
