Australia will start the day on 264-5, with Shane Watson and nightwatchman Nathan Lyon at the crease. The former is on 29 but look susceptible to the LBW last night, while England will expect to get Lyon, a tail-ender, out fairly quickly to bring Brad Haddin on to the pitch. How they fare against the wicketkeeper will be vital after he was so key to the whitewash in 2013/14.
The Three Lions put 430 on to the board earlier in the game, and have a great chance of getting a first innings lead as a result. 132 from Joe Root, as well as half centuries from Gary Ballance, Ben Stokes, and Moeen Ali helped them to the total, which looks like a good score on a slow pitch which is hard to get in on.
With only ten overs until the new ball it could be down to Stuart Broad and James Anderson to help make this a reality. The pair have looked dangerous without taking heaps of wickets so far, and will want to get some reward for their toil against the lower order.
