England battle on to day five
England will need to bat throughout the final day of the third Test in Perth after rain brought an early end to play on the fourth day.
Australia continued their batting attack at the start of play on Sunday and they eventually declared on 662-9 thanks largely to the efforts of skipper Steve Smith and Mitchell Marsh, who managed excellent knocks of 239 and 181 respectively.
The hosts had a lead of 259 as England walked out but their batting attack once again let them down.
Opener Mark Stoneman picked up just three runs before Josh Hazlewood dismissed him, while former captain Alastair Cook could only score 14.
Captain Joe Root also scored 14 but James Vince showed some resilience after making his second Test half-century. A sensational delivery from Mitchell Starc dismissed him for 55 before England reached 132-4 at the close of play at the Waca in Perth.
England must now survive on Monday if they are to secure a draw and they will be hoping for more rain as they try to avoid losing the series this weekend.
