ENG Vs AUS, 3rd Ashes Test, Day 3: England Make Hay While The Sun Shone On A Rain-Affected Day - In Pics

Day 3 of the third Ashes Test was mired in unpleasant conditions with incessant rain and, later, a wet outfield, as two sessions were lost without a ball being bowled. Play did resume shortly after Tea, with batters Travis Head and Mitchell Marsh looking to add to Australia's overnight 116-4. But that stint lasted only six balls before the skies opened up again, leading to a further delay. Once the sun was out, England bowlers made the most of the seaming conditions to remove Australia's last six batters for 108 runs, Head scoring a fiery 77, and restricted them to 224 with a lead of 250. England batters Zak Crawley (9*) and Ben Duckett (18*) started positively, too, scoring 27 runs in the last 5 overs of the day. They need 224 more runs to win and bring their team back into the series that Australia currently lead 2-0.
