Zac Crawley showed no signs of discomfort in his stroke-filled stay in the middle as he glided his way to 77 off 100 balls, although an inswinging yorker from seamer Cameron Green took him by surprise. Australia have done well to pick up three wickets in the session with another 40 mins to go. The visitors lost their third wicket for 96 runs and their hopes of playing out a draw and even chasing the target took a beating with the dismissal of the well-set opener. Joe Root is joined at the crease by Ben Stokes, the half-centurion from the first innings.
The yorker does for Zak Crawley 😣
He walks off 23 runs shy of a second Test hundred.
