Smith holds firm as Australia rein in England 203 for threeJonny Bairstow kept his head with a fine century for England but Steve Smith showed a captain's poise to guide Australia to 203 for three at the close of day two of the third Ashes test Friday. Smith was on 92 at stumps, with Shaun Marsh on seven, and the home side, already 2-0 up in the five-match series, having trimmed England's first innings lead to 200 runs at the WACA.The wicketkeeper's 119 helped push England to 403, their highest innings total in Australia since the fifth test of the 2010/11 series.England may need to contain Smith and Australia with an injury cloud over third seamer Overton.
