England are in a near-unbeatable position as they enter the fourth day of the Lords Test match against Australia, after enjoying a perfect game to date.
Currently at 333-5, the hosts enjoy a massive 566-run lead over the Australians, which is already a Test record chase in a fourth innings.
Joe Root was the toast of English cricket yesterday with the rising star of the game scoring his second Test century, belting 178 to help put his side in charge.
Going into the game under slight pressure to perform, the story could have been very different for Root when an edge flew between first and second slip at the end of day two.
For the second time this match Australian wicketkeeper Brad Haddin did not go strongly enough for the ball causing confusing between he and first slip Michael Clarke.
The ball trickled down to the boundary and Root made the most of the good luck, adding another 170 runs.
Ian Bell continued his excellent form to start the Ashes series in scoring 74 before he was dismissed by Steve Smith on day three.
On what was one of their worst days of Test match cricket in the past 10 years, nothing Australian skipper Clarke tried came off.
At the ends of the third day, Peter Siddle still talked up the side’s chances of escaping from Lords with a draw or even a history-making win.
But given the woes of the top-order the later seems unlikely unless a massive turnaround in form happens today.
England captain Alastair Cook showed no signs of declaring in the evening session on day three and is likely to give Root the chance to score his double century or get out, and declare after what ever happens first.
England dominance in the second Test has seen a rush for Ashes tickets, with fans desperate to get to see any action in the remaining three Test matches.
