From 97-5 to 326 all out.

Haddin and Smith put on 120 odd for a sixth wicket partnership to get the Aussies out of jail. Pretty frustrating after winning the toss and putting them in, and going into lunch at 94-4. I was fairly optimistic when I hit the sack at 1.30am.

Carberry has already fallen for a duck, unless he can come up with something in the second innings his place will be under scrutiny.

On a positive note, Stokes finished with 6-99.

We have to bat well tomorrow to avoid a whitewash.
