    OUT! Bowled. Stuart Broad to Steven Smith. Length ball, outside off stump moves in front Slog, missed to. Smith misses with a big heave, is bowled, and immediately turns and runs off the field. Australia will have ten minutes or so to try and steal a wicket or two before the close of play. What an innings from the former captain in his first game back in whites. He's scored over half of the runs his team made and single-handedly carried them into a competitive position in this match. The pitch is still offering a fair bit and life in the middle will be tough for England's opening batsmen. Will they send out a nightwatchman?

Whipped away behind square again by Smith. That's exactly the right place to target, you're only allowed two fielders behind square on the legside and the boundaries are obviously shorter too behind square.

He has managed to get Australia into a good position here. I'm not sure how keen England's openers will be to bat for a few overs tonight.

    OUT! Caught. Nathan Lyon to James Anderson. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot slog sweeping, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to silly mid on, by Cummins. Spooned tamely and that is a simple chance for Cummins to end the innings and the session. Really useful runs for England down the order, Woakes and Broad helping them to a lead of 90.

    Australia's colossal stint in the field has finally come to an end, their four main bowlers will be happy for the opportunity to get some rest as we reach the tea break on Day Three. Wickets tumbled in the morning session but they found it much tougher this afternoon with the pitch really looking devoid of all life. Moeen Ali will certainly be a threat for England this evening and it will be interesting to see what part James Anderson plays after seeming to struggle running between the wickets in that partnership with Chris Woakes. The tourists will need someone in the top order to stick with Steve Smith if they are to set a challenging target.

    SIX! Joe Denly to James Pattinson. Leg spinner length ball, outside off stump on the front foot Slog, well timed in the air under control over long on for 6 runs. Pattinson plonks another one into the stands for good measure, and Paine calls the troops in to declare the innings.

    So Australia will have seven overs tonight if the light holds up. A very tricky time for England to get through. The hosts have been set 398 to win, which is pretty much impossible with the remaining overs left in the game. Only the draw and an Australia win is likely now. Can the visitors nip a couple out before the close? That would give them huge hope heading into the final day. Vital phase coming up.

    FOUR! Joe Denly to Pat Cummins. Leg spinner length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed in the air under control past long on for 4 runs. Cummins reaches out, and blasts it over mid on's head with ease. Surely a declaration is coming soon?

    OUT! Caught. Pat Cummins to Chris Woakes. Off cutter short, outside off stump on the back foot Fended, Spliced to second slip, by Smith. There it is! Cummins rolls his fingers across it as he fires it into the surface. The ball grips, holds up, and Woakes doesn't know what to do with it. He ends up poking the bat at the ball, and chips it into the hands of second slip.

    Australia have done a thoroughly professional job today, and sealed the victory with ease. A massive win for the visitors, who go 1-0 up in the series. Pat Cummins and Nathan Lyon combined to run through the England batting line up, with no one in particular contributing massively for the home side. All of this wouldn't have happened if it wasn't for one paritcular man, though. Steve Smith with two sensational hundreds set up the game for the Aussies. He was the star performer across the five days. Worrying signs for England, who seem very tired, and there is still four matches left to go!

    The teams head to Lord's for the second Test, which begins next Wednesday. Will Australia extend their lead? Or can England level it up?

    FOUR! Peter Siddle to Chris Woakes. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, outside edge past third man for 4 runs, dropped catch by Smith. Waft of the bat, edge drawn, but put down at second slip by Smith! He would've expected to hold onto that. It did go quickly and low to his left, but he got two hands to it. Went straight through him to the fence.
