At the Close – England require 365 runs to win
A fantastic day’s cricket saw the pendulum swing both ways as Australia finally ended the day on top. England require 365 runs to win tomorrow with only 8 wickets remaining.
Steve Smith (82) again was the difference between the two sides and his partnership of 105, with Matthew Wade (34), looks to have secured a winning total for Australia.
Pat Cummins then took 2 wickets in 2 balls in his opening over to reduce England to 0-2. It’s anyone’s guess as to who will win tomorrow….. but rule out England….
