England need someone to»put their hand up and become the protagonist» to prevent Australia retaining the Ashes in Old Trafford, states coach Trevor Bayliss.
The hosts will restart about the final afternoon of the Test, needing to bat at least 98 overs to draw on 18-2.
The five-match show is level at 1-1 after Ben Stokes’ phenomenal century gave a success in the next Test at Headingley to England.
«I am always convinced — we can get this done,» said Bayliss.
«We have talked about who’s going to put their hands up and become the hero.
«It is going to take a couple of our guys to make good hundreds however, as we saw from the last Test, anything is possible»
A deficit of Jofra Archer, Stuart Broad and 196 reduced Australia in a thrilling afternoon session to 44-4 after England narrowly avoided the follow-on to be disregarded 301.
But Steve Smith was in making 82, placing on 105 together with Matthew Wade as Australia announced to put England a minimal 383 for success.
Before Jason Roy and Joe Denly survived to the close pat Cummins eliminated Joe Root and Rory Burns in consecutive balls.
«It’s a big challenge but we have got two very good players on the market and we have got some men in the shed that could generate hundreds,» said Bayliss.
«When you drop a couple of wickets so close to the conclusion of play it is a little disappointing but we are pretty optimistic.
«Hopefully we could bat well, save the match and enjoy a beer after.»
Former England captain Michael Vaughan said to salvage a draw the hosts wanted a»wonder» on level with their thrilling win in Leeds.
«To face that Australia attack with this pitch now for 98 overs, it will take an extraordinary innings,» he told Test Match Special.
«You think that it will need to be Ben Stokes again — he is the one player that seems calm and composed.
«There have not been enough of the England team that have came — it has been people and individual brilliance.»
Australia batsman Smith, who currently has 671 runs at a mean of 134.2 inside this show, said his side will just keep»hitting that top of the stump length» to find the eight wickets they need in order to retain the Ashes.
Cummins removed Root for a golden duck with a majestic delivery that reach the top of off-stump and then abandoned the England captain.
«Cummins hit that length beautifully — which chunk to Root is a design of what we will need to perform,» Smith explained.
«It is going to be hard for England, especially while the ball is tough.
«I felt pretty vulnerable in my initial 20 or even 30 balls if they were bowling that great length and there is enough up and down and backward movement.»
