Stumps - Day 3
And that is stumps day 4 with England moving ahead largely thanks to a five-hour innings from Ian Bell, 95 not out at the close, what an effort it has been from him. Support from Matt Prior and chiefly Stuart Broad, he and Bell have added over a hundred for the seventh wicket and England have moved into calmer waters. But of course the talk of the day will be the slip catch to remove Broad that wasn't given by Aleem Dar. No idea how he didn't see it but he didn't and Australia had no reviews remaining.
