Ashes, Fourth Test Day Four LIVE: England are aiming to get closer to Australia’s first-innings total after magnificent unbeaten hundred from Jonny Bairstow… with tourists trailing by 158 runs with three wickets left
England will attempt to continue to raise spirits after a rousing third day in Sydney was capped off by Jonny Bairstow’s magnificent hundred.
Bairstow notched his seventh Test century and his first since November 2018 and helped lead the fightback with Ben Stokes after the tourists had been reduced to 36 for four by Australia.
But plenty of hard work remains in store for Joe Root’s men, who still trail the hosts’ 416 for eight declared by 158 runs, and with just three wickets left.
