Joe Root’s side, currently 0-2 down, have been boosted by a maiden century from Dawid Malan in the third Ashes Test as they ended day 1 of the Perth Test on 305/4. Malan was well supported by Jonny Bairstow who smashed 75 to dent Australia and give themselves a realistic chance of bouncing back in the Ashes contest.
