Coach Darren Lehmann virtually conceded that Australia's hopes of a 5-0 series whitewash were over after England's strong show on Day Three yesterday. "We are just being outplayed by a better side at the moment," Lehmann said. "We are 164 runs behind, we would have to score 450 runs in a day. How do you want us to do that? Slog? We've got to worry about getting past them first and batting well. That's the first challenge and a different challenge for the group, which is great. We'll hopefully bat through the day and re-assess after tomorrow, that's all we can do."
