Ian Bell (9) and Ben Stokes (14) defied the Australian bowling attack for the last hour after England lost two key wickets late Saturday, lifting the total to 180-4 after a stifling second day in the third Ashes test.

After digging in to get to 136-2, skipper Alastair Cook (72) and Kevin Pietersen (19) were out within 10 runs as England's first innings wobbled in pursuit of Australia's 385.

With Australia desperate to reclaim the Ashes in Perth and England needing at least a draw to prolong its defence, the match at the WACA was delicately poised with three hot days remaining.
