The aim on Day 4 will be to close the gap as much as possible and for that Jonny Bairstow will need to survive. The next two batsmen — James Anderson and Stuart Broad — apart from Jack Leach aren’t known for their batting. If take over 100 lead and add another 250 on Day 4, England will be staring at yet another defeat. The visitors will be desperate to avoid that.

In Sidney, the highest total chased is 275. It was Australia who chased down the target against England back in 1898. But since then, only four times a team has chased down a target but the last time it happened, it was 1985. In 37 years, no team has successfully chased a target.

Day 3 Summary: Overnight at 13/0 after Australia declared at 416/8, England’s suffered a batting collapse yet again. The most dependable Joe Root had departed for a duck while Haseeb Hameed, Zak Crawley and Dawid Malan all were dismissed with the score reading 36/4.

Ben Stokes and Jonny Bairstow stitched together a 128-run partnership for the fifth wicket to steady the sinking ship and before being asked to follow on.

Bairstow reached his ton on the third-last ball of the third day for England’s first century in this series as he and Stokes led a recovery after England were in dire straits at 36 for four.

England have already lost the Ashes but they at last showed some fight. Stokes, grimacing in pain from a side strain picked up while bowling on Thursday, posted his highest score of the series with 66 to share in the rearguard.

Stokes dug deep to club nine fours and a massive six off Nathan Lyon over extra cover but the off-spinner had the last word, trapping Stokes plumb lbw with a skidding delivery to end his brave 91-ball knock.

It was a gutsy effort from Stokes, who was unable to bowl when he returned to the field on Thursday after treatment.

Stokes had a massive slice of luck on 16 when he was given out, only to win a review when replays showed a Cameron Green delivery actually hit the off-stump but the bail somehow was not dislodged, much to his relief.

Boland, who took a stunning 6-7 on his Test debut as man-of-the-match in the third Test in Melbourne, knocked over Zak Crawley’s off-stump and then had Root caught in the slips for a seven-ball duck to have the tourists in yet more strife.

England are now playing only for their Ashes pride after going down by an innings and 14 runs inside three days in Melbourne to give Australia a 3-0 lead with two Tests to complete.
