Johnson skies one! It will be out will it... no! Bell and Anderson can't make up their mind and it falls safe! England will just want to erase today completely and take yesterday with it. Zero happening for them and Australia sweeping all before them. Johnson moves to 33, Haddin 49 and their side 6/385.

Another one over the keeper's head! Johnson riding his luck now. And again! Johnson finishes that with an Adam Scott follow through off the tee and clears the ropes! Tremlett copping a mauling now.

Huge swipe from Johnson against Swann and it misses everything, Prior's gloves included. That's another four to the Australian tally, which is careening out of control if you're English. Will Clarke make them chase 600?

Yep, Tremlett it is. Clouts that one back past the big bowler for a four and Mitch has found one to his liking here. Tremlett just looking harmless on this deck and to be honest, looked that one in the first innings when there was pace and bounce. He won't be playing in Adelaide. It's now 6-356 and the lead is 515.

Suspect Johnson has made up his mind about Tremlett...

That's a bit more like it. Johnson madly swipes Tremlett back down the ground but it stops short of the fence. Tremlett just hasn't come onto the bat today - anything short has been demolished with glee by the Australian bats, Watson being the exception after top edging one.

So not exactly the fireworks I had expected from Johnson and Haddin. Fairly measured batting here as Swann is thrown the ball again. He's been a target for much of the day and Johnson will certainly be tempted to employ that slog sweep against the spin. It's 6/345. 

The lead is past 500 but no signs of them going back in for the change. It looks like Clarke is just going to make this an absolute punish for the tourists. It's 6/343.

Not much movement on the weather front after that little shower earlier. Some clouds building way out west (where the rain does in fact fall) but nothing to trouble the scorers here. Don't believe me? Check for yourself.

Four more to Haddin. He's in fine touch in Brisbane. Plays that one down into the ground and moves off strike. He's in control of his game is the Australian keeper. Gets along to 32 to add to his 94 in the first innings. The total is 6/332, the lead 491. 

One S Broad being given a bowl.

Haddin with a flyer. That's a foul ball but earns him four runs off Anderson. And there's another. They're going to trying and knock the cover of this new pill by the looks of things. And away we go...

New ball! This could change everything. At the very least it should be fun watching Broad and Anderson going at Johnson. They've been quite lippy today in a side getting soundly trounced.

Back to top

The lead is 469, which you'd suggest would be enough, but 500 plus just has that nasty edge to it. They should be able to get there and I wouldn't be surprised if Clarke calls them in and wants a ping at them in the fading light tonight. 

wicket!

WICKET. Bailey goes for a handy contribution of 34 runs. Swann bowls another one and you can imagine how this is going to unfold from here. Mitchell Johnson to the crease with the score at 6-305 but boy he can clear the pickets if he gets going. He's back with first innings hero Brad Haddin.

Play has resumed here at The Gabba and this could be fun if Australia want to throw the bat. Keen to see what the orders are here with Bailey and Haddin at the crease.

You're spot on there Piers... it does sound ridiculous.
