OUT! Caught & Bowled. Peter Siddle to Joe Root. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, in the air uncontrolled to short leg, by Siddle. That's a sharp one-handed return catch from Peter Siddle. Root was driving on the up and hit it very straight, Aleem Dar was taking evasive action. Siddle stuck out his right hand and grabbed the ball mid-flight to pick up a wicket that he's worked hard for. Australia needed that, can they capitalise now?

Pat Cummins to Joe Root. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pushing, to point for no runs, fielded by Lyon. That brings to an end a tough but solid morning of cricket for England. Pattinson caused Roy problems early on and had him caught at second slip but Root and Burns have battled well, slowly but surely building a partnership. Lyon got some sharp turn and he is definitely going to be a factor in this match, perhaps making a good first innings lead even more important for England. All in all though, so far so good for England.

APPEAL! James Pattinson to Joe Root. Seaming away back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot defending, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, by Paine, appeal made for Caught. Big noise, big appeal and up goes the finger! Root reviews straight away. Well I thought at first that must have bowled him but the stumps are intact and he's been given out caught behind. Let's have a look. It's missed the bat comfortably, in fact it's missed the pad too and it did hit the top of off stump! It wobbled around a bit and the bail lifted on one side but then came to rest back in its groove.

APPEAL! Nathan Lyon to Joe Root. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot working, hit pad to silly point for no runs, fielded by Cummins, appeal made for L.B.W. Another shout. It's all happening for the spinner. Turning too much it looks like on this occasion.

APPEAL! Nathan Lyon to Joe Root. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, hit pad to gully for no runs, fielded by Smith, appeal made for L.B.W. The umpire signals to Australia that Root was playing a shot at this. He hides the bat behind the pad to try and smother the turn. Was it coming back enough to hit the stumps? No review because of what the umpire said. Not sure he was playing at it to be honest.

APPEAL! Peter Siddle to Joe Root. Seaming in length ball, outside off stump on the back foot defending, bat-pad to for no runs, appeal made for L.B.W. Another stinker from Joel Wilson! Root has been triggered, but has a smile on his face as he reviews again. It kept low and came back in off the deck, but a thick inside edge saved him.

FOUR! Pat Cummins to Joe Root. Half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past long off for 4 runs. A tempter from Cummins to suck Root into the drive, and the England captain obliges. Not struck as cleanly as he would've liked, but solid enough to send it trickling through mid off for four.

APPEAL! James Pattinson to Joe Root. Length ball, off stump on the front foot glancing, hit pad to for no runs, appeal made for L.B.W. Up goes the finger, but Root reviews instantly. It looks very legside on first glance. HawkEye agrees. Not a great decision by the umpire again. Umpire's call on impact, and missing leg by a distance. Root survives.

FOUR! James Pattinson to Joe Root. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot driving, well timed past deep point for 4 runs. Seen that many times over the years. Textbook Joe Root. Stands tall to get on top of the bounce, and punches it off the back foot in front of point.
