Yes, this is... good?

Root has faced 60 balls for 12. Burns has faced 110 for 53. England are 79/1 just after lunch. Australia were dangerous in the morning, but England have got away with only losing one. It's by no means straightforward for the batters, but it will get easier and if they can stick it out it will get easier, bowlers will tire, and there might be an opportunity for a good score.

It might not happen. But it's nice to feel it's an option.
