Alex Carey has heeded his lessons ahead of the Ashes and put away the reverse sweep to help Australia set up a big fourth-innings target for India in the World Test Championship final.

Australia went to lunch at 6-201 on Saturday, with a lead of 374 and five sessions still to play at The Oval.

Runs were hard to come by on the fourth morning, with Australia adding 78 to their overnight score after losing Marnus Labuschagne for 41 in the third over of the day.

But what will please Australia is the patience with which Carey (41no) and Cameron Green batted, six days out from the first Ashes Test against England at Edgbaston.

Both were watchful throughout the opening session in a 43-run sixth-wicket stand, before Green was bowled by Ravindra Jadeja trying to leave on 25.
