Home side’s bowlers again do the damage.
Australia has won another session in the Sydney Test match, with England reaching tea on 87-3 in response to be set 448 runs for an unlikely win.
Earlier in the session at the tail end of the Australian second innings, Chris Rogers showed no signs of slowing down as he guided Boyd Rankin through the covers with an excellent shot.
The boundary took him to 118 runs for the game which became his new highest score in his international career.
However, his innings came to an end soon after when Scott Borthwick earned a big leaning edge from his bat, allowing him to dive forward and take an excellent catch.
The young leg-spinner gained his second Test cricket as Australia fell to be 256-8 an overall lead of 427 with the tail to come, with fireworks set to follow.
Harris hit a slog-sweep to deep mid-wicket with Michael Carberry catching the ball as he crossed the rope.
But his second chance did not last long as the Australian quick belted the next ball to Carberry, as he was out for 13.
The score qucikly moved on to 266-9 a lead of 437.
Peter Siddle and Nathan Lyon continued to try and hit out, before Boyd Rankin earned his first Test cricket when Siddle top-edged a short-ball through to Jonny Bairstow.
Australia were bowled out for 276 in their second innings, setting England the imposing total
of 448 runs to salvage something from the series loss and avoid the humilition of 5-0.
Needing a big score from Alastair Cook, the England captain again fell to his arch-enemy, nicking Mitchell Johnson to Brad Haddin for just 7 as the mental scars developed during the summer continued.
Both Johnson and Ryan Harris got their line wrong early to Michael Carberry, with Haddin
sent sprawling away to his right several times.
Ian Bell showed plenty of attacking intent early for England, as he looked to turn the pressure
back onto Australia’s fast bowlers.
However, it did not last long with David Warner taking an excellent low-down catch from the bowling
of Harris, as England’s score became 37-2.
George Bailey then spurred Australia on with a stunning catch off an inside edge from the bat of Kevin Pietersen as England fell to be 57-3.
