Watch Australia vs England 5th Test Day 3 Highlights – 6 JAN 2018 Today – Usman Khawaja batted on and on as Australia moved to the lead on the next day against England at the SCG, where Khawaja and Shaun Marsh batted Throughout the middle session Free of Reduction. On a challenging day for England who had so much brought them just 1 wicket, in addition to a few frustrations, the Australians moved to tea 3 to 365, resulting in 19 runs, together with Khawaja on 166 and Marsh on 54.
Smith had batted on and off and appeared destined for his fourth hundred of this show, but on 83 he chipped a return to Moeen, who had been bowling around the wicket. It was only Moeen’s fourth wicket of the show, and also the very first time he’d ignored a right-hander in this effort, and also the wicket against the run of play finished a 188-run stand between Smith and Khawaja, who had batted with minimal difficulty through the majority of the session.
The next session ended in much less frenetic manner compared to the first. Khawaja and Smith had batted through the majority of the morning but a eventful last two overs before lunch attracted the conclusion of Smith’s innings and refused legspinner Mason Crane a maiden Test wicket because of no-ball.
Australia vs England 5th Test Day 3 Highlights:
Khawaja continued to collect his runs slowly, increasing his 150 out of 334 deliveries using a set of successive boundaries off Moeen Ali. From the close of the session, Khawaja was at the crease for 368 deliveries, which left this professionally his greatest innings in cricket that was outstanding, in addition to the longest from any besides Steven Smith at a Test for at least five year. At tea, his partnership with Marsh was worth 90 runs.
Marsh endured a close call on 22 if he was given out caught behind off the part time offspin of Joe Root, after consulting Khawaja, he called for a critique. It was difficult to figure out why Marsh hadn’t reviewed instantly, for the replays demonstrated between ball and bat a gap large enough that Cameron Bancroft could practically have been bowled during it. This was England’s only close call from the semester, and Marsh brought up his fifty only before tea off his 121st ball.
