Australia paceman Josh Hazlewood took three big wickets in the final hour of play to reduce England to 200-5 on day three of the fourth Ashes Test, setting up his team for another great chance for a victory to retain the urn.

Replying to Australia's 497-8, England were 166-2 - with Rory Burns and Joe Root on a partnership of 141 - when Hazlewood's burst of wickets arrived at Old Trafford.

Burns edged to Steve Smith at second slip for 81, Root was trapped lbw in Hazlewood's next over for 71, and Jason Roy missed with a weak defensive prod and saw his middle stump uprooted on 22.

Ben Stokes (7), England's hero from their memorable win at Headingley in the third Test, and Jonny Bairstow (2) were in the middle when bad light brought an end to play about 30 minutes before the scheduled finish.
