England ended the third day of the opening Ashes test match against Australia in a strong position after a solid day with both bat and ball.
Australia resumed their first innings on 264/5 with Shane Watson and night watchmen Nathan Lyon at the crease. Stuart Broad picked up the opening wicket of the morning session, trapping Watson lbw wit his score on 30. Lyon fell soon after for 6 leaving the tail with the task of facing up to the new ball. Haddin and Johnson made both reached double figures but offered very little resistance to some excellent bowling by Broad and Anderson with the new ball, bowling Australia out for 308 runs, trailing England’s first innings score by 122 runs.
England were in early trouble with both Cook and Ballance back in the pavilion with just 22 runs on the board. Lyth lost his wicket on 37 leaving Ian Bell and the in-form Joe Root to rescue the England innings. The pair both reach 60 off 89 balls to set the foundation for England, but Australia fought back well picking up wicket at regular intervals to restrict the England scoring. Ben Stokes made an aggressive 42 off 59 balls, while Wood blasted 32 off just 18 balls to take England to a score of 289 all out after 70 overs. England will probably have liked to get a few more runs on the board, as they have left the door slightly open for Australia, but it will be hard work on a pitch that will offer plenty of movement on the 4th and 5tf days of the test mach.
Australia will have to chase down 412 runs for the win, and certainly have the batting at their disposal to do so, but one feels that the England bowling attack should be able to secure the win for them.
