For the hosts, Marnus Labuschagne added a fifty to his first-inning century, while Travis Head also made 51. For England, who are 1-0 down in the five-match series, Ollie Robinson, Joe Root, and Dawid Malan each took two wickets. Despite an injury to captain Joe Root in the warm-up that prevented him from taking the field for the start of play on Day 4, England's bowlers got three early wickets to halt Australia's bid for victory. Before Australia declared, Leter and Root returned to the field and each took two wickets. Australia has a 1-0 advantage in the five-match series.
