England were 54/0 in their second innings at lunch to lead by 105 - at which point Australia had drifted to 3/1 and England were 4/7 for victory - before collapsing to 179 all out as Nathan Lyon bagged five wickets.

That left Australia chasing 231 to win, and they comfortably knocked off 30 of those in eight overs before the close.

England are now 4/1 to win the game, with the draw all but out of the equation at 150/1.

Australia's not-out openers David Warner and Chris Rogers head the top Australia batsman betting for the second innings at 5/2 and 11/4 respectively.
