Usman Khawaja batted on and on as Australia moved into the lead on the third day against England at the SCG, where Khawaja and Shaun Marsh batted through the middle session for no loss. On a difficult day for England that had so far brought them only one wicket, as well as a few frustrations, the Australians went to tea on 3 for 365, leading by 19 runs, with Khawaja on 166 and Marsh on 54.

Marsh survived a close call on 22 when he was given out caught behind off the part-time offspin of Joe Root, and after consulting with Khawaja, he called for a review. It was hard to work out why Marsh had not reviewed immediately, for the replays showed between bat and ball a gap big enough that Cameron Bancroft could almost have been bowled through it. That was England’s only close call in the session, and Marsh brought up his fifty just before tea off his 121st ball.

Khawaja continued to accumulate his runs gradually, raising his 150 from 334 deliveries with a pair of consecutive boundaries off Moeen Ali. By the end of the session, Khawaja had been at the crease for 368 deliveries, which made this comfortably his longest innings in first-class cricket, as well as the longest by any Australian other than Steven Smith in a Test for more than five year. At tea, his partnership with Marsh was worth 90 runs.
