Australia will be aiming to set a huge target as they resume Day Four of the third Test at 235 for three with and overall led of 369 runs. David Warner’s second century of the series was the highlight of the Australian innings so far.

 

England were yet again outplayed when they were bowled out for 251 in the first session of third day which gave Australia an overall lead of 134 runs. Shane Watson and Steve Smith are the overnight batsmen and Watson in particular will be aiming for hitting a few big shots to quickly extend the target and take it past 500.

 

England are without the services of Stuart Broad who hut his foot after being hit by a Mitchell Johnson yorker.

Australia 385 (David Warner 60, Steve Smith 111, Brad Haddin 55; Stuart Broad 3 for 100, James Anderson 2 for 60) and 235 for 3 (David Warner 112, Chris Rogers 54) lead England 251 (Alastair Cook 72, Michael Carberry 43; Ryan Harris 3 for 48, Peter Siddle 3 for 46) by 369 runs.
