Check out the state of play as the home team continues to dominate.
Australia’s vice-like grip on the third Test match, and most likely the Ashes, tightened even further against England in the afternoon session at the WACA.
David Warner (81) and Chris Rogers (42) made the pitch that gave up six England wickets in the first session look like a placid road, as they took their side’s second innings total to 123-0, an overall lead of 257 runs.
