Day 3 analysis: Masterful Root century grinds hapless Aussies (Lords)

Opener Joe Root (178 not out) was the hero on Day 3 as England ground Australia into the dust.

The 22-year-old became the youngest Englishman to make an Ashes century at Lord's. Root shared a 99-run partnership with county team-mate Tim Bresnan (38) before combining with Ian Bell (74) for a stand of 153. England 333-5 (Root 178 not out) and 361 (Bell 109 / Harris 5-72) lead Australia 128 (Swann 5-44) by 566.
