Mitchell Starc slammed a quickfire 35 off 64 balls to prolong England's agony at the Gabba before Chris Woakes snuffed him out with a well-disguised slower ball. Travis Head, on the other hand, is going strong after having rattled up his maiden Ashes hundred yesterday off just 85 balls. The partnership between Stokes and Head was worth 85 and must have frustrated the visitors a great deal, given their agenda on the third day's morning would have been to prune the tail out quickly.
