170th over: Australia 528-4 (S Marsh 124, M Marsh 86) Okay, Broad does get a go now. Ali Mitchell on ABC says she had a chat to him in the lift this morning. Encouraged him to take his 400th wicket. In response, said we might be waiting until March. Joking, of course. But maybe he’s right on the evidence of this first set. A gift to Mitch Marsh early in the over, floating down outside the off-stump. He absolutely lashes it past point for four. Into the 80s. He’s short again, on Mitch’s body, so he pulls this time and the result is the same. Back to back boundaries. Awful way to start Broad’s day. These two have now put on 150.

In 8 Tests between them, the Marsh brothers have made more than 700 runs this series. Pretty impressive. And together – they’ve beaten Steve Smith’s 687! #howgoodissmith
