Still England's morning but they've let the Aussies off the hook here. Some rank average from England in the second hour. Stokes looks like he's bowling with a blindfold on.

Yes, too many deliveries that the Aussies didn’t need to play at in the second half of the session. A lot of leg stump or wider deliveries the other side.

Saved by an inch. In real time that looked 100% gone.

Probably because he moves so far across his crease. Smith knew exactly where his off stump was.

Very important time in the match here. It's one of those days where every ball that gets bowled, you feel a wicket could be taken off it.

The Aussie batting lineup is barely any better than Ireland's bar Smith.

England’s bowlers looking lethal here, it’ll be very interesting to see the Aussie quicks.

Starting to feel like the English bowlers are a bit tired. Not causing too many issues for this tail ender, could do with just focusing on line and length, too many deliveries too short, too wide, too leg side...the corridor of uncertainty isn’t being found regularly.

Steve Smith is just an incredible player. the term 'Captain's Innings' can be bandied about easily, but this has been the definition.

C’mon now Smith, 1 more run for what would be an amazing 100 in these conditions. That six off Ali was a great shot
