Australia need after diminishing England at tea on day five of their fourth Test at Old Trafford four wickets in the last session to retain the Ashes.
England, who had chased on 18-2, dropped Jason Roy (31) and Ben Stokes (1) in the morning and also Joe Denly (53) and Jonny Bairstow (25) from the afternoon.
Pat Cummins believed he’d finished a five-for if he’d Craig Overton (12no) given out lbw, just for the decision to be clubbed with the ball hitting the England man away from the line.
The hosts are intending to bat out the last day of an Exam to make a draw for first time since doing this in New Zealand in 2013 and, together with Jos Buttler (30no) in the crease, have hope.
Should Australia win, they can proceed 2-1 up to play and become the first flying side to depart England as Ashes holders since 2001’s Steve team.
Cummins struck twice with Stokes while Nathan Lyon had pouched at leg at next, caught behind before Mitchell Starc trapped Bairstow lbw and bowling Roy.
Cummins had begun the victory push Saturday evening, reducing England to 0-2 four chunks in their innings if he dislodged Rory Burns and Joe Root out of successive deliveries for ducks.
