England’s second innings continues to power on.
An excellent knock by Joe Root has helped put England in an excellent position to take their lead in the Ashes to 2-0.
Australia only got the one wicket for the session when they dismissed Tim Bresnan for 38 and Ian Bell was lucky to survive a catch by Steve Smith in the gully, with the decision overturned by the third umpire.
