Another fizzing session! This series keeps delivering. England right on top, didn’t blast through all at once, but kept chiselling off piece after piece. Warner early, Khawaja to extreme pace, Labuschagne to a bit of skill, and Smith the vital one not long before the break. Australia in a very difficult position.
Then there’s Bairstow, whose drop of Smith has not been hugely costly and was a difficult chance, but whose drop of Head does not fit the latter description and might yet fit the former.
