Reaction from Old Trafford Cricket Ground where Steve Smith's 211 put Australia in control of the fourth Ashes Test against England on Thursday.

The former captain continued his superb form with his third century of the series on his return to the side after missing the third Test in Leeds with concussion.

Frustratingly for England, Smith was caught on 118 but Jack Leach's delivery was a no ball after he stepped over the crease.

The tourists eventually declared at 497-8.

England faced 10 overs before the end of day and are 23-1 heading into day three after losing opener Joe Denly.
