Root leads England off the field after batting all day. He's 178 not out overnight - although may not come back out if England declare in the morning, as they lead by 566 runs. We'll be back at 10am tomorrow when England will look to take a 2-0 lead in the series. Have a lovely evening all.
Smith bowling too short and Root helps himself to two sixes into the Tavern stand. The crowd give out a bellowing ROOOOOOOOOT!
Shane Warne himself would have been happy with that one. Smith gets one to grip and turn away from Bairstow.
Root picks up two more down to thrid man and that's 300 for England. New ball available, but as yet Australia resisting the temptation.
