A pulsating Ashes opener that had promised a grandstand finish will more than likely end early with a handsome win to Australia after Steve Smith's side pushed within 56 runs of victory at the close of day four Sunday.The loss of captain Joe Root for 51 before the first break was a blow but there was still hope as Moeen Ali and Jonny Bairstow drove England to 155 for five.It was Lyon's third wicket of a fine test for the offspinner and England's breaking point after three days of mostly valiant cricket.All-rounder Chris Woakes added 30 runs with Bairstow but his uneasy 57-ball knock ended on 17 when caught in the slips by Smith after being worked over by a short ball from Starc.After England resumed the day on 33 for two, Lyon had opener Mark Stoneman caught for 27 by Smith at slip.
