The Sun UK – I said it yesterday, but what a Test match this is.
- England won the first session this morning and were dreaming of a first innings lead of 80-100 as they tore through the Aussie middle order.
- But Steve Smith’s wonderful 141* changed all that, taking his team into a narrow lead and getting stuck in late in the day.
- Alastair Cook and James Vince are back in the hutch, leaving Joe Root and Mark Stoneman with the job of getting on with things in the morning.
- Ashes cricket at it’s most dramatic and intense…Joe Root (5) and Mark Stoneman (19) see the session through for England but it wasn’t comfortable.
- England finish 33-2#Ashes pic.twitter.com/4xITRq3Bpn— The Ashes on BT Sport (@btsportcricket) November 25, 2017
