Root got things going as he clipped a straight delivery from&nbsp;<a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/tags/Ryan-Harris/post" target="_blank">Ryan Harris</a>&nbsp;through mid-wicket to get the first four of Day Three. Cook then played a square drive to a full and wide delivery from Harris to get his first four of the day. Cook and Root got to their first 50-run partnership of the series.<br /> <br /> There was a big appeal for leg-before as Cook played across the line to a straight delivery from Harris and missed. Umpire Kumar Dharmasena said not out but Australia captain&nbsp;<a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/tags/Michael-Clarke/post" target="_blank">Michael Clarke</a>&nbsp;asked for the review. Replays showed that the ball would have hit the stumps, but it pitched just outside leg-stump.
