ASHES UPDATE: Australia wobbling on 48-3 at lunch, chasing huge 583

England then declared its second innings on 349-7, setting Australia a monumental run chase of 583 with almost two days remaining.

England opted to bat on with the aim of seeing opener Root to a maiden double century, but he was caught at fine leg off fast bowler Ryan Harris while attempting an audacious ramp shot over the wicketkeeper’s head. He faced 338 deliveries and batted for almost eight hours.

Harris also claimed the other wicket to fall in the session, when Jonny Bairstow was caught behind for 20. Matt Prior was unbeaten on 1 but was dropped by Ashton Agar off his own bowling.

In reply, Australia reached the lunch break on 48 for the loss of three wickets in the shape of Shane Watson, Chris Rogers and Phil Hughes.
