The Ashes third Test day four - live blog and betting updates

England endured a torrid time of it in the final session of the third day, losing five wickets for just 85 runs and are now up against it in trying to win this Test match

02:30 - Here we go then, the fourth day of the third Test is underway, something tells me we won't be here for long.

02:30 - Australia 1/50, draw 150/1, England 12/1, there should be about four 0's on England's price!

02:32 - You can't dampen the Barmy Army's spirits, but to be fair the bars in the ground probably ordered enough beer for five days so there's a few pints to be drunk!

02:34 - Anderson survives the first over of the day, Bell will be on strike now, he's 6/4 to score a 50, England will need a lot more than that to have any chance here.

02:42 - Jimmy is 10/1 top England batsman. He's got 31 to get past, his best Test score is 34!

02:45 - Four to go, Anderson's off stump goes flying.

02:46 - Harris has his 6th wicket of the match, fine effort from him. England still shy of 100 with six wickets fallen.

02:47 - England have there last two recognised batsmen at the crease, Bell and Prior, they need an astronomical partnership to rescue England.

02:49 - Aus 1/66 - Eng 12/1.

02:50 - The spread on England's 2nd innings total is 197.5. The 17/20 on under that seems nailed on.

02:54 - 6 for Prior! This is getting easy now, 12/1 on England is buying money.

02:55 - The wicketkeeper is 11/8 to score a 50.

02:57 - Bell didn't want to run there and might have missed out on one more run, not that it'll make the slightest bit of difference to the outcome of the match.

03:02 - It looks like it's curtains for Bell.

03:02 - England soon to be seven down.

03:04 - A real shame for Bell as he was playing some nice strokes out there, Australia 1/300, England 28/1.

03:06 - Harris gets a 'Michelle' five-for!

03:07 - That's the end of Prior, and that's the end of England, just two more strikes and the series is level.

03:08 - I was saying yesterday that I thought it would be over in an hour, it doesn't look like England will even last that long.

03:12 - And that's the end of Swann, another for Johnson and he's one shy of a ten-wicket match, just outstanding bowling from Mitch in this game.

03:16 - Who will be the final man out then? Finn's 8/13, Tremlett 6/5.

04:19 - And that's your lot, we're level at 1-1 going in to the Melbourne Test on Boxing Day, dire effort from England but some superb bowling from Australia.

04:20 - Ricky Ponting comes back on to the pitch to congratulate his team-mates, a lot of pressure has been lifted on him.
