And that's the close. Australia's day. They skittled England's lower order and now trail by 200 with seven wickets in hand. Steven Smith has looked superb today. England's bowlers worked hard but lacked a cutting edge. Craig Overton's first spell was excellent as he struck twice but then had an injury cloud over him. Overall, though, they remain in the contest. Still, how crucial will the latest lower order demise prove? Questions will be asked about a couple of the shots played. Concerns, too, over Stuart Broad's bowling? Much to ponder. Australia had the day they needed, but things can change. England need to get past Smith (or maybe all the other Australian batsmen!). We'll have plenty more reaction on the site over the next few hours but for now, from Gnasher, Alan and Devia it's goodbye and see you tomorrow.
