Due to some technical problems, we are unable to cover live matches on our site and app. We are working on it and will be back soon. Please stay tuned for more.

Clarke leads the team onto the field, Cook and Lyth stride out to the middle, Starc to open. He has three slips and a gully in place, here we go then...

England have a big task ahead, Cook will and should be a tired man especially after being on the field for 125 overs. We will be back shortly to bring you England's reply, stay tuned...

Riding on Steven Smith's brilliant hundred, Australia reached a very good total. David Warner, Adam Voges and Mitchell Starc also played their parts with handy fifties. It has to be said that Chris Rogers and Warner at top of the order stitching a 100-plus stand played a major role in setting up the platform. For the hosts, they bowled well in patches. Ben Stokes swung the ball and was rewarded with three wickets. Steven Finn was expensive, but he snared three wickets as well. He also reached the milestone of 100 scalps in Tests. Moeen, too, provided crucial breakthroughs. Australia now would look up to their speedsters to make inroads into England's top-order and put them under pressure.

125.1 - Finn to Siddle, out Caught by Lyth!! There it is, the final wicket. Fullish and around the off-stump line, Siddle went too deep inside the crease to drive, thick outside edge flies to the right of gully. Lyth dives full length and grabs a well-judged catch. So 481 it is, Clarke must be happy with the score after being asked to bat under overcast conditions. Siddle c Lyth b Finn 1(9)

Finn to Siddle, THATS OUT!! Caught!!

Lyon 5(9) Siddle 1(8) Stokes 29-6-133-3

124.6 - Stokes to Lyon, FOUR, Lyon has a wry smile after middling the shot, full and outside off. Driven like a top-order batsman wide of mid-off, even Stokes is pleased with that shot

124.5 - Stokes to Lyon, no run, short and on the stumps, that stopped a bit on Lyon who was checking his drive, ball lobs in the air and lands well in front of mid-on

124.4 - Stokes to Lyon, no run, length delivery outside off, Lyon goes for the punch and Moeen into the action again. Dived full length to his right and saved a certain boundary

124.3 - Stokes to Lyon, no run, makes a contact this time but Moeen dives to his right at backward point and stops Lyon from taking a single

124.2 - Stokes to Lyon, no run, Lyon can't resist, flashes at a full wide delivery, can only connect with fresh air
