  • England's record for a successful fourth-innings run chase was 332/7, set in Melbourne in 1928. After surviving the night session on the fourth day for the loss of only two wickets, there's growing confidence of a broken record. A crucial 77-run partnership between Root, who faced 114 balls and had an lbw decision against him overturned on 37, and Dawid Malan (29) guided England through most of the night session. After Malan was bowled by Pat Cummins late, Chris Woakes went in as a night watchman and survived eight balls to be 5 not out at stumps.

  • James Anderson produced his best bowling performance ever in Australia to drag England back into the inaugural day-night Ashes Test, and skipper Joe Root posted an unbeaten 67 to bring an unlikely upset closer to reality. England, after losing the series-opener by 10 wickets last week in Brisbane and being bowled out for 227 to concede a 215-run first-innings deficit in the second Test, reached 176/4 at stumps on Tuesday.

  • Smith burned two umpire referrals in the space of three balls on desperate attempts to have Root and Malan dismissed when the umpire had ruled not out. That meant the Australians had no more reviews for almost 40 overs. Root, meanwhile, used his referral to perfect advantage, asking for a review after he was given out lbw on 37 when England was 101/3, and having the decision overturned when the tracker technology showed the ball from Nathan Lyon was going over the stumps.

  • It didn't get better in daylight hours, with Anderson returning 5/47 — his first five-wicket haul in Australia — and Woakes taking 4-36 to skittle Australia for 138 in the first session on Tuesday. No Australian batsman surpassed 20 in the second innings. England reached dinner at 68/2 after losing Alastair Cook (16) and Mark Stoneman (36), setting the scene for a big night session for the Australian bowlers.
