Josh Hazlewood took three wickets, including Rory Burns and Joe Root, in the final session on Day 3 of the fourth Ashes Test on Friday to shift the momentum in Australia's favour before the play was called off early due to bad light. At stumps, Ben Stokes and Jonny Bairstow were batting at 7 and 2 respectively, with England still needing 98 more runs to avoid the follow-on. Earlier, overnight batsman Rory Burns and England skipper Joe Root dominated the middle session, after the first session was washed out, and added 150 runs for the third wicket. They both completed their half-centuries. In the final session, however, Hazlewood picked three wickets to take his tally to four on the day. (LIVE SCORECARD)

    LBW appeal...Given! Root departs for 71

  • 22:42 (IST)Sep 06, 2019


    Jason Roy gets off the mark with a fluid cover drive. The ball was pitched full and wide of off stump and Roy leaned into the drive sumptuously. 
  • 22:28 (IST)Sep 06, 2019

    Hazlewood gets Australia big breakthrough!

    The pressure was mounting and Rory Burns succumbs to that. Finally an outside edge carries to the slip and is taken comfortably. Josh Hazlewood gets the reward as he breaks the dangerous partnership. 
  • 22:26 (IST)Sep 06, 2019

    Just short of cover!

    Nathan Lyon bowls short and wide and Rory Burns decides to cut it hits it way too close to the fielder Matthew Wade who was stationed at cover.
  • 22:08 (IST)Sep 06, 2019

    Barrage of short-pitch bowling!

    Pat Cummins is attacking both the batsmen with his short-pitch bowling. He is trying hard to get Australia the big breakthrough. He has been the most consistent of all the Australian quicks.
  • 22:02 (IST)Sep 06, 2019

    Pin-point bouncer!

    Pat Cummins catches Rory Burns by surprise with his well-directed bouncer. Burns was in no control while playing that but luckily it fell safely in the vacant area.
  • 21:57 (IST)Sep 06, 2019

    Risky single!

    Rory Burns taps a short ball from Pat Cummins in front and runs for a single immediately. A direct hit could have sent him packing but it wasn't to be. 
  • 21:50 (IST)Sep 06, 2019

    Delay in action!

    Joe Root seems to be in some real pain. He is down on the ground holding his thigh. Now the physio is coming to treat him. He gives him a pill and he is ready to go.
  • 21:47 (IST)Sep 06, 2019


    Pat Cummins forces another outside edge from Joe Root and like last time, it also goes between the slip and gully and races away to the third man fence. 
  • 21:43 (IST)Sep 06, 2019

    LBW appeal.. turned down...Australia lose review!

    Huge LBW appeal against Joe Root, umpire turns it down and Australia lose their review after the replay showed the impact to be well outside of off stump. 
  • 21:41 (IST)Sep 06, 2019


    Rory Burns gets on his knee and sweeps Nathan Lyon over midwicket for a four.
  • 21:37 (IST)Sep 06, 2019

    Edge and four!

    Pat Cummins induces an outside edge off Joe Root's willow but it goes between wicket-keeper Tim Paine and David Warner and races all the way to the fence. Warner and Paine both kept looking at each other but didn't move. 
  • 21:35 (IST)Sep 06, 2019


    Pat Cummins pitches the ball full, outside off stump and Joe Root drives it elegantly and opens the face of the bat to beat the backward point fielder. 
  • 21:31 (IST)Sep 06, 2019

    Root gets to his fifty!

    England skipper Joe Root gets to his half-century with a single. This is second consecutive fifty in this series. He failed to convert it into a big knock last time, can he do it this time?
  • 21:20 (IST)Sep 06, 2019

    Cummins bowls maiden!

    Pat Cummins tests Rory Burns with his attacking line and lengths. Some of the balls were really unplayable. Burns, however, still manages to survive, like he has done so far in the day.
  • 21:15 (IST)Sep 06, 2019

    Finals session begins!

    Nathan Lyon bowls short and wide and Rory Burns uses the depth of his crease and cuts it away for four runs.

    Day 3 Tea England trail by 372 runs!

    England lost only one wicket in the session and have added 102 runs. Joe Root and Rory Burns have added exactly 100 runs for the 3rd wicket. Australia bowlers need to be a bit more disciplined in their line and lengths.
  • 20:46 (IST)Sep 06, 2019

    Good shot!

    Nathan Lyon drops short and wide which allows Rory Burns to go deep in his crease and cut it past point. Little better placement could have earned him four runs but this time he has to stay content with just two.
  • 20:38 (IST)Sep 06, 2019


    Josh Hazlewood drops one short and Joe Root gets in to a comfortable position to pull it away towards deep backward square leg fence for a cracking four.
  • 20:21 (IST)Sep 06, 2019


    Starc bowls wide of off and Joe Root opens the face of the bat at the very last moment and the ball races towards the third man fence.
  • 20:09 (IST)Sep 06, 2019

    Root in pain!

    Mitchell Starc bowls a back of length delivery which rises sharply and hits Joe root in the area where it hurts the most. Nothing to worry though as he is back on his feet. 
  • 20:00 (IST)Sep 06, 2019

    Starc missing his lengths!

    Mitchell Starc is just not finding his rhythm going today. He has bowled off target on either sides of the wicket. 
  • 19:56 (IST)Sep 06, 2019

    Four! Risky shot!

    Nathan Lyon gets sharp turn in to the right-handed Joe Root but he tries to cut it very late and almost chopped his own stumps -- one very risky shot from him which was not required at the moment given the stage they are in. Nevertheless, it gave him and England four runs as it raced away to the fence behind wicket-keeper.
  • 19:54 (IST)Sep 06, 2019

    100 up for England!

    Mitchell Starc once again bowls on the leg stump and Joe Root plays it towards midwicket and comes back for three. With that England have 100 up on the scoreboard.
  • 19:50 (IST)Sep 06, 2019


    Mitchell Starc once again strays down leg stump and Joe Root flicks it fine to claim a boundary. It was easy picking for a batsman of Root's calibre. 
  • 19:43 (IST)Sep 06, 2019

    50 for Burns!

    Rory Burns gets to his 4th Test fifty with a boundary -- not a convincing one though as it came off an outside edge which went between gully and second slip. Mitchell Starc finishes another expensive over.
  • 19:42 (IST)Sep 06, 2019


    Mitchell Starc bowls short and wide of off and Rory Burns cuts it past point and the ball races away to the fence. 
  • 19:41 (IST)Sep 06, 2019

    Two runs!

    Mitchell Starc starts his new spell with a full ball outside off stump and Rory Burns leans forward to launch a cover drive but only manages to collect two runs.
  • 19:37 (IST)Sep 06, 2019

    Three runs!

    After Josh Hazlewood fails to trouble Rory Burns with his bouncers, he bowls full but errs in his line. Burns flicks it in the air but ball goes away from the short mid-wicket fielder. The fielder has to run a good distance to collect the ball during which the batsmen come back for three runs. 
  • 19:33 (IST)Sep 06, 2019

    Hazlewood continues!

    Josh Hazlwood to continue after the drinks break. He is persisting with short-pitch bowling especially to Rory Burns who has played him comfortably so far, barring one or two occasions. 
  • 19:27 (IST)Sep 06, 2019

    Drink break!

    After a flurry of runs in last few overs, the Australian bowlers have come back strong to concede just two runs in last three overs. With that it'll be drinks.
  • 19:21 (IST)Sep 06, 2019

    Lyon bowls a maiden!

    England skipper Joe Root fails to read Nathan Lyon's variations in this over. The pitch also offered variable bounce which created doubt in Root's mind whether to go on the frontfoot or the backfoot.
  • 19:16 (IST)Sep 06, 2019


    Runs are coming thick and fast for England now. This is the fourth boundary inside three overs and this time, for a change, it came off Rory Burns' bat. Hazlewood bowled a short ball, Burns shuffled across and hooked it towards fine leg. 
  • 19:13 (IST)Sep 06, 2019


    Joe Root clinches the third boundary inside nine balls. Lyon bowled down leg and Root glanced it off his pads and the ball races away to the fence.
  • 19:11 (IST)Sep 06, 2019


    Pat Cummins for the second time in this over misses his line and pays for that. Joe Root flicked it off his pads behind square on the leg side and collects second boundary of the over.
  • 19:06 (IST)Sep 06, 2019

    Four legbyes!

    Pat Cummins for the time in this spell bowls a wayward delivery going down leg and Joe Root fails to put bat on that but the ball still races to the fine leg fence after kissing the pad.
