Afternoon Session Summary
A good session for Australia again. They lost only the wicket of Watson LBW to Broad untill the wicket of Ed Cowan on the stroke of tea. England have struggled to get the ball to do anything much. There's a hint of swing occassionally and Swann is sometimes finding good turn out of the rough. Even despite the wicket of Cowan who edged to Trott off Root, Australia will still be content with where they are in pursuit of their target of 311.
