Root on 36 and Bairstow on 4.

In comes Hazelwood to the bad hand man ... who takes a single.

80 for 4, the spinner isn't the same force against right handers.

Smith bowls another nothing over.

A loose last ball gets smashed to mid wicket.

90 off 42 overs.

Root 41, Bairstow on 17 ...

Smith has handed the ball to a real spinner.

Lyon is back.

Bairstow blocks it out, a couple of overs to go in the day.

It's been an enjoyable test match.

The BBC stating the obvious :-

England are facing another defeat in the final Ashes Test after Australia once again dominated on the fourth day in Sydney.

The tourists closed on 93-4, still 210 short of making the home side bat again.

They had been reduced to 15-2 and 43-3, but were held together by captain Joe Root's unbeaten 42.

On a day of extreme heat in Sydney, Australia added handsomely to their overnight 479-4, eventually declaring on 649-7.

Shaun Marsh and brother Mitchell both completed their second centuries of the series as Australia rattled along at almost five runs per over.

Mason Crane, the 20-year-old leg-spinner, was unfortunate to return 1-193, the most expensive figures by an England bowler on Test debut.

Australia, already 3-0 up and with the Ashes secured, appear on course to earn their ninth win in 10 home Tests against England.

As they pursue the six remaining wickets on the final day, they will have benefit of a pitch showing occasional signs of uneven bounce and large amounts of turn for off-spinner Nathan Lyon.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The heat generated thunder clouds and it's possible that rain might reduce play tomorrow.

England can only hope.

:twisted:

Absolute garbage Bouchy. Aside from one innings Cook has been dreadful. Malin and Root have been ok with the bat but no more than that. As for the bowling Anderson has been decent....as for the rest...
This will be 4-0 and a thorough trouncing.

I think Shaun Marsh will do well for Glammy in the summer.

Agree, how many of the England team would get into the Australian side? Maybe none...writing was on the wall last summer when Hope and Braithwaite trounced the England bowlers on the only wicket similar to Australia..
