Wow! We did NOT expect there to be Ashes cricket today, but Joe Root’s innings has brought England right back into the 3rd Test and, possibly, the series. You don’t want to miss today’s cricket where the result is there for the taking at Headingley. If you’ve been completely bowled over (sorry!) by this cricket series, we’ll tell you the best ways to get an England vs Australia 3rd Test live stream.
Yep, all comes down to this. If Australia’s Hazlewood, Pattinson, Cummins and co take seven wickets, they retain the Ashes. If Joe Root, Ben Stokes and the England batsmen can knock off 200 runs, then they square up the series with two Tests remaining. Tantalising doesn’t quite describe what’s on offer in Yorkshire this Sunday.
England vs Australia Ashes 3rd Test – where and when
The 3rd Ashes Test takes place at Headingley in Leeds, ordinarily the home venue of Yorkshire CCC.
The action begins at 11am BST local time, making it an 8pm AEST evening start for those looking to tune in Down Under.
The key issue ahead of the action in Leeds was always going to be how the Aussies deal with the loss of Steve Smith. Marnus Labuschagne has certainly proved a fitting replacement. Cameron Bancroft’s poor form sees him replaced by Marcus Harris, while Peter Siddle makes way for James Pattinson as the Green Caps’ seamers are rotated again.
For England, they’ll be looking for the likes of Joe Root, Johnny Bairstow and Jos Buttler to finally fire and avoid the kind of mid-order collapse that seems to have become the norm for this side in recent years.
Will England draw level or can the Aussies extend their series lead? You can watch all the action from pretty much anywhere on Earth by following our Ashes 3rd Test cricket live stream guide below.
