England managed to bowl Australia out in time for lunch this morning, for a total of 190. This gives Australia a slim lead of 5 runs over England's first innings score.
The tail-enders proved harder to shift than England would have hoped, after Australia's overnight score of 105 for 7. Recalled fast bowler Alex Tudor proved his worth by taking five wickets, despatching the last two batsmen in the final over.
Play was halted by rain shortly before 3pm, by which time England had reached 57 for 1. Trescothick was caught out for 32, although television replays showed that Shane Warne's delivery should have been a no-ball.Reuse content
