Ben Stokes and Matt Prior defied the Australian pacers to see out the first hour of the day’s play. Stokes is batting on 90 and Matt Prior is on 14. While the pacers have been on target, the widening cracks on the pitch have started to play a role as well. On one occasion, a delivery over the wicket from Ryan Harris drifted six degrees away after hitting a crack. However, the batsmen kept their focus intact and went about scoring runs when available.
England resumed the day on 251 for five chasing a target of 504.
