Lunch Break Update

Australia would have been already happy with three wickets, but Joe Root's dismissal just before Lunch is the icing on the cake for them. The partnership between Ben Stokes and Jos Buttler has bailed England out of trouble in the past, but with Nathan Lyon on top and the quicks also starting to get some reverse, it appears too much even for this pair. Seems like, England's only remaining option is to invoke the spirits of the Paul Collingwood and Monty Panesar from Cardiff, 2009. Join us in a little more than half an hour for what could potentially be the last session of the 1st Ashes Test.

Lyon has his first scalp of the day

Roy's World Cup hangover has cost him here. A shot that does not belong to white clothing on a Day 5 pitch, against a world-class Test spinner.

England 60/2 (21.2 Overs)

Joe Denly next man in

 

12:16

Stat Attack

Joe Root has not been the best when it comes to the high-pressure fourth innings in Tests. He has scored 616 runs from 23 innings (fourth) and averages below 35, with the top score of 87.

12:07

Drinks update

Lyon's first over of the day itself gave England a few scares. He is a quality spinner whose biggest strength is to keep all three dismissals - bowled, lbw and caught behind - in play for the most part of his spells. England have a tough job at hand.

12:03

Lyon into the attack

The real deal begins. How England tackle Australia's lead spinner will decide the fate of the match.

England 41/1 (17 Overs)

Roy 18, Root 10

Stat Attack

Rory Burns might not be England's hero for the day, but he has achieved a rare feat, becoming one of the few batsmen to have batted on all five days of a Test. He joins these men in a distinguished list:

ML Jaisimha, G Boycott, K Hughes, A Lamb, Shastri, A Griffith, A Flintoff, A Petersen, C Pujara.

11:35

Another decision overturned

Root adjudged lbw by Joel Wilson. Goes for the DRS. The hawk-eye shows the ball going down leg.
