Ashes 2019: Smith resists once again but England in driver's seat

Aug 03, 2019 20:26 IST

England ended day 3 of the 1st Ashes test in driver's seat at Edgbaston. A ton on debut by Rory Burns and a fightback by the lower order helped the hosts end their 1st innings at 374. In the process, Stuart Broad became only the 2nd cricketer to score over 3000 runs and take more than 450 wickets in Test cricket. Australia's top order failed yet again as the visitors found themselves wanting at 75/3. But Steve Smith once again dropped anchor. He remained unbeaten on 46, helping Australia end day 3 at 124/3 with a lead of 34 runs.
