Leeds, Aug 25  Ben Stokes and Jonny Bairstow maintained England’s bid for an extraordinary comeback win in the third Test against Australia at Headingley on Sunday.

At lunch on the fourth day England — bowled out for just 67 in their first innings — were 238-4, needing a further 121 runs to reach a victory target of 359 that would see them level the five-match Ashes series at 1-1.

Stokes was 32 not out and Bairstow 34 not out, with their unbroken partnership so far worth 79 runs.

If Australia win this match they will retain the Ashes at 2-0 up with two to play.
