The final session of the day belonged to Marsh brothers who frustrated England bowlers by continuing to pile on runs. The debutant Mason Crane gave England a reason to celebrate early in the session, getting the big wicket of Usman Khawaja, who departed on 171. But England failed to make the most of the momentum with Shaun Marsh and Mitchell Marsh stitching another solid partnership. The duo added another 100+ runs for Australia with Mitchell Marsh scoring a quick Test fifty. His brother Shaun Marsh, who reached 97 in the final over, scored a single in the first ball of the final over and gave his brother the strike back. His brother played out the rest of the over. Australia reach 479/4 at stumps on Day 3, leading England by 133 runs, with Shaun Marsh not out on 98, and his brother remaining not out on 63.
