England’s openers have blunted 11 overs down to end the day unscathed on 30/0, with 358 more to achieve on the final day for a win. The fourth day, though, belonged to comeback king Usman Khawaja who backed up his first-innings century with another in the second innings. He put on a 179-run stand with Cameron Green to give Australia a lead of 387. England bowled well in patches, but couldn’t contain the batsmen after Tea when they scored at almost six an over. The final day of the Sydney Ashes Test promises to be a cracker.
