OUT! Caught. Pat Cummins to Ben Stokes. Seaming away back of a length, middle stump on the back foot cutting, top edge to wicketkeeper, by Paine. Breakthrough for the tourists and it's a vital one provided by Pat Cummins. This isn't the greatest delivery he will ever bowl but Australia don't care as they gather to high five the bowler. Stokes is gutted, he thought the ball was there to be hit with a horizontal blade however it has kissed the edge through to a relieved Paine.

James Pattinson to Ben Stokes. Half volley, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, to mid off for 1 run, fielded by Siddle. Fifty for Stokes, warmly appreciated by the Edgbaston crowd. England are closing in on Australia's total.

FOUR! Pat Cummins to Ben Stokes. Seaming away back of a length, to leg down the track defending, outside edge past third man for 4 runs. Stokes shows his positive intent by walking towards the bowler however he is still able to play this with soft hands meaning the edge goes safely into the turf. He is now one run away from a solid half century.

FOUR! James Pattinson to Ben Stokes. In-swinging half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past long on for 4 runs. Delightful stroke by England's number six, sending the ball rocketing down the ground with a piece of pure timing. First boundary of the morning and it wakes the crowd up from their slumber.

APPEAL! James Pattinson to Ben Stokes. Seaming away half volley, outside off stump on the front foot working, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, by Paine, appeal made for Caught. Some excitement here for Australia, especially from behind the wicket, but it seems as though the noise came from the bat hitting the ground. Pattinson looks threatening this morning with the ball still relatively new.

FOUR! Peter Siddle to Ben Stokes. Back of a length, outside off stump down the track glancing, past fine leg for 4 runs. A little shuffle of the feet from Stokes. The ball is angled into him and he tucks it away very fine off the face of the bat. Stokes is changing his shoes here so the helmet is off, the gloves are off, the pads are off, all of which he's going to have to put back on before the next ball.

Stokes cuts hard at the ball and it flies off the top edge and close to Bancroft at second slip. He'd barely had time to move and the ball was away. It would have hit him rather than being a catching chance had it gone straight at him. He's put a helmet on now.

A jaffer from Lyon, ripping it out of the rough, and a small deflection off the outside edge is gobbled up by Paine. Extra bounce off the deck, so a terrific take by the keeper. England are falling apart! 350 Test Match wickets for Nathan Lyon, a great achievement.

Nathan Lyon to Ben Stokes. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, inside edge to silly point for no runs, fielded by Bancroft. Australia have made a huge stride towards victory this morning. It has been compelling viewing during those two hours. Nathan Lyon has been fantastic, but he has also been backed up excellently by the three seamers as well. England have tried to grind it out, but it's been difficult for them on this day five surface. A huge mountain to climb to get out of this one with a draw. They need a wicketless session in the afternoon to inspire hope. The visitors will fancy finishing it off before tea.
