Nathan Lyon took a stunning return catch among his four wickets as Australia bowled England out for 227 just after dinner on the third day, a 215-run deficit that gave Smith the option of sending the tourists straight back in and attempts to compound their woes under lights. Australia's Nathan Lyon, second left, catches out England's Moeen Ali, second right, for 25 runs during the third day of their Ashes cricket test match in Adelaide.
The pink ball swings further and moves more off the seam in night conditions that are ideally suited to veteran England paceman Jimmy Anderson, but Smith took the gamble to bat again and try to build a big lead with two days to play at the Adelaide Oval. England's Stuart Broad is hit by a delivery from Australia's Pat Cummins during the third day of their Ashes cricket test match in Adelaide.
Anderson and Chris Woakes took two wickets each to have Australia's second innings in deep trouble at 434 at stumps, an overall lead of 268 runs.Anderson had Cameron Bancroft caught behind in the third over with the total at 5 and trapped Usman Khawaja 20 lbw to make it 239. Australia's Tim Paine, right, celebrates catching out England's Stuart Broad for 3 runs during the third day of their Ashes cricket test match in Adelaide.
Woakes had David Warner 14 caught at second slip in the next over and then — after Smith was lucky to get an lbw decision overturned against Anderson before he had scored — he dismissed the Australia captain for six to make it 504. Australia's Mitchell Starc reaches out to take the wicket of England's Jonny Bairstow, caught and bowled for 21 runs, during the third day of their Ashes cricket test match in Adelaide.
Australia won the series-opener by 10 wickets in Brisbane last week and appeared to be in complete control of the second test, but England's four-wicket burst late on the third day keeps the contest alive in Adelaide. England hold the Ashes after winning at home in 2015 but was swept 5-0 in the last series held in Australia in 2013-14. England players watch Australia's Steve Smith, left, walk off after losing his challenge to his LBW dismissal for 6 runs during the third day of their Ashes cricket test match in Adelaide.
