England captain Alistair Cook declared for 391-9 with a lead 331 on the second day of the fourth Ashes test.

The highlight of the innings was Joe Root's superb 130 whilst Jonny Bairstow managed a commendable 74.

Mitchell Starc bowled well as he finished the innings with six wickets for 111 runs.

Moeen Ali had a late charge with a wonderful 38 from 24 balls before he was superbly caught at slip by Steven Smith and England will be confident they've done enough to take the win.

Australia were bowled out for just 60 runs in less than 19 overs on the first day and face a huge task if they want to take this series to the final game and prevent England from regaining the Ashes.
