The top-order Test team had one bowler in the form of Cummins, who worked in the field, electing not to bowl due to quad soreness.

“I was going to take a bowl but was lucky it didn’t come too close,” he said.

Lyon had a heavy workload on his shoulders and dismissed the skipper for 110 before cutting the off-stump of Kraigg Brathwaite by getting Kyle Mears caught early for 10.

After scoring an unbeaten 200 in the first innings, Steve Smith had to fly into the slips to catch Jason Holder (3), who edged part-time spinner Travis Head (2-25).

Roston Chase (55) and Alzarri Joseph (43) kept Lyon happy with an entertaining 82-run partnership, but once Head broke the resistance, the hosts wasted no time in cleaning the tail.
