    I think there is going to be a result.

    Smith is human, he's not Bradman. Simon Hughes was watching him in the nets and he nicked one straight to where slip would be. If Archer can bowl with hostility at him I think it will be a great contest

    It's about the way you bat and Roy is too good a player to try and crash his first ball. The way he played at Edgbaston in the second innings to get to 28 was lovely. There are worries there but there are worries about Buttler at number five, he looks to have lost the confidence to play at Test level. There are too many of them that you ask if they have got the basics for Test cricket. The best technician in the side at the moment is Chris Woakes.

  5. 'Big first session on Friday'

    Tomorrow is a big first session. The forecast isn't great but there is time for Australia to build a big first-innings lead.

  6. Post update

    Stuart Broad struck before stumps, dismissing David Warner for the third time in this series, but you'd imagine Australia will be the happier of the two sides.

    Australian spinner Nathan Lyon, on whether he is pleased with Australia's day: "Definitely I don't think we have had our best day, we dropped a few catches but if we are batting at the end of the day we are pretty happy. We want to be a team that no matter what we do first we are competing and playing a positive brand of cricket."

    On equalling Dennis Lillee's 355 Test wickets: "I have always said I am not one for personal milestones but it is a pleasing thing, it is pretty hard to see my name alongside the true legends of Australian cricket. It's a special moment and hopefully a few more will come."

    Still, Australia's bowlers vindicated Tim Paine's decision to field first as England were dismissed for 258. There were three wickets apiece for Josh Hazlewood, Pat Cummins and Nathan Lyon, and one for Peter Siddle.

    Buttler looks short of runs and without Woakes it would have been a sorry old state.

  10. 'England aren't out of this Test'

    Michael Vaughan

    Ex-England captain on BBC Test Match Special

    England's 258 is competitive in a way but with the amount of talent in that line up they will have expected someone to get three figures. Cummins after lunch was right up there with the best you'll see. The technical side of England's batting is a worry, I don't think they are out of this Test at all, we saw the wicket that got Warner was a beauty. Australia look like they are very driven and you would expect them to make it very difficult.

  11. Post update

    England lost 4-46 before a 70-run stand between Jonny Bairstow, who made a welcome half-century, and Chris Woakes spared a few blushes.

    England opener Rory Burns: "There was a little bit there throughout the day but it was one of those wickets where if they missed you could still get on top of it. There was some good bowling, a bit of nibble and we have seen in that period if you stick enough balls in the right areas it can be difficult."

  13. Post update

    Rory Burns looked good for his 53 - although he was dropped twice - and he and Joe Denly had a good, 70-run partnership that ended far too early for England's liking.

    It has not been a good day for England. It has been another sloppy batting performance. It could have been worse but they have got to bat with more discipline.

    Careless batting again from England, lots of 20's and 30's but Australia just realised they had to plug away and the chances would come.

  17. Post update

    So, England were put in to bat this morning by Australia and, if we're honest, it was all a bit predictable.

    I think it's going to be another great Test match. Hopefully we won't lose too much time tomorrow, there is still enough time for a winner.

    Now, the forecast tomorrow is a bit... well, have a look.
