Tense battle ensues at Chester-le-Street.
A ton to Chris Rogers and a five-wicket haul to Stuart Broad are the highlights on the scorecard at lunch on day three of the fourth Ashes Test match of the series.
Australia worked its way to a slim 32-run lead before getting the early wicket of Joe Root as England began trying to set the touring side a tough target in the final innings of the match.
