Australia took total charge of the third Test as England's slim hopes of an Ashes fightback disappeared on a one-sided third day in Perth.

Having lost their last six wickets for just 61 runs to concede a first-innings deficit of 134, Alastair Cook's men then lost control in the field as Australia piled on 235-3 to lead by 369 runs.

With paceman Stuart Broad unable to take the field after being sent for scans on an injured foot, leaving the tourists a bowler short in searing heat, David Warner was able to profit freely as he smashed 112 with 19 boundaries after escaping a clear stumping chance on just 13.
