Marsh brothers plunder centuries as England wilt in the heat


SYDNEY: Nathan Lyon was spinning Australia toward an emphatic victory in the final Ashes Test as beleaguered England unravelled on a torrid day in Sydney on Sunday. The Australians amassed a massive 303-run innings lead in blistering heat and then reduced the battle-weary tourists to 93 for four at the close with a day to play. Compounding Englands woes was a finger injury for skipper Joe Root, his teams last major hope of staving off a 4-0 series rout on Mondays final day of the Test. Root was unbeaten on 42 at the close with Jonny Bairstow not out 17. Australia called a halt to their epic first innings at 649 for seven, and soon had England in trouble after the tourists had been cooked in the field for more than two draining days. Mark Stoneman was leg before wicket to Mitchell Starc for a duck and lost a review in the process, and next ball Alastair Cook was put down at first slip by Shaun Marsh off Josh Hazlewood for five.(NEWS BY GEO NEWS).
