OUT! Caught. Pat Cummins to Chris Woakes. Off cutter short, outside off stump on the back foot Fended, Spliced to second slip, by Smith. There it is! Cummins rolls his fingers across it as he fires it into the surface. The ball grips, holds up, and Woakes doesn't know what to do with it. He ends up poking the bat at the ball, and chips it into the hands of second slip.Australia have done a thoroughly professional job today, and sealed the victory with ease. A massive win for the visitors, who go 1-0 up in the series. Pat Cummins and Nathan Lyon combined to run through the England batting line up, with no one in particular contributing massively for the home side. All of this wouldn't have happened if it wasn't for one paritcular man, though. Steve Smith with two sensational hundreds set up the game for the Aussies. He was the star performer across the five days. Worrying signs for England, who seem very tired, and there is still four matches left to go!The teams head to Lord's for the second Test, which begins next Wednesday. Will Australia extend their lead? Or can England level it up?

OUT! Bowled. Stuart Broad to Steven Smith. Length ball, outside off stump moves in front Slog, missed to. Smith misses with a big heave, is bowled, and immediately turns and runs off the field. Australia will have ten minutes or so to try and steal a wicket or two before the close of play. What an innings from the former captain in his first game back in whites. He's scored over half of the runs his team made and single-handedly carried them into a competitive position in this match. The pitch is still offering a fair bit and life in the middle will be tough for England's opening batsmen. Will they send out a nightwatchman?

FOUR! Ben Stokes to Steven Smith. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past deep extra cover for 4 runs. Welcome back to Test cricket Steve Smith. That is a very impressive innings on a day where he alone has stood tall and produced for his side. Conditions have been bowler friendly but he's barely made a mistake, playing each ball on its merits. An emotional celebration after a lovely drive through the covers takes him to three figures.

Chris Woakes to Peter Siddle. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, to extra cover for 1 run, fielded by Broad. Another good session for England with five more wickets falling. There has been plenty of cloud cover and just the right amount of shape for Broad and Woakes both in the air and off the pitch. The covers are coming on as we head off for tea as there is just a bit of rain falling now. For Australia Smith has been a shining light on an otherwise dark day. Without him they might have struggled to reach three figures. However, never judge a score until both teams have batted. Australia's seamers will fancy their chances against England's inexperienced top order and if Smith and Siddle can add some more runs after tea Australia might not be too upset about things.

APPEAL! Chris Woakes to Peter Siddle. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, inside edge to for no runs, appeal made for L.B.W. Full and straight and up goes the finger.

I'm afraid it's another poor decision from the officials.

Well that ball swung a long way out of nowhere. Was there an inside edge? We'll find out as we have yet another review. Paine was perhaps too far across but the shape made his shot look worse than it was. Pitching in line and hitting plenty of middle and off, great stuff from Woakes.

Hits Smith on the pads with his bat raised above his head and Aleem Dar gives him out. Smith can't believe it, surely he will review this, he does. Well the umpires haven't had their best day today so he's in with a chance. Remember there was no shot played and it was given out so the ball only needs to be hitting some part of the stumps. It isn't, it's missing off and Smith survives.

Moeen Ali to Travis Head. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, to short extra cover for no runs, fielded by Anderson. An excellent session of cricket, if that's anything to go by we're in for a very tightly contested series. England started brilliantly with the ball, Broad picking up two wickets and Woakes and Anderson bowling exactly the areas they would have wanted, really testing the Australian top order. For Australia they key man is still there though, Steve Smith. He's been well supported by Travis Head and together they pushed the score on in the last half hour before lunch.

OUT! L.B.W. Stuart Broad to David Warner. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, hit pad to. England like this one even more and so does Aleem Dar! Up goes the finger and there's no challenge from Warner. It was full and Warner played outside the line of the ball with it angling in from round the wicket and it thudded into the pads. Great start for England. Warner isn't going to be happy when he sees the replay, we've just seen Hawk-Eye and it was going down leg on the angle from Broad. The second bit of luck goes England's way.

APPEAL! Stuart Broad to David Warner. Seaming in back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot defending, hit pad to for no runs, appeal made for L.B.W. Nips back in with Warner playing on the back foot and England like it. Aleem Dar says not out but England have a discussion. Root opts for the review. Warner is betting well outside of his crease here which has been noted by the umpires. No bat and it does look straight. Here comes Hawk-Eye, it's going over the top, England lose a review.

Bairstow was the only England player who made any sort of appeal and his track record is not good. UltraEdge though shows that Warner got some bat on that, he would have been given out had England reviewed. First slice of luck goes to Australia.

Start of Australia Innings. Good morning and welcome to Edgbaston for the first day of the Ashes. Put the coloured kits and the white balls back in the cupboard, it's time to separate the men from the boys, it's time for some Test cricket. With all the drama of the World Cup the start of this series has snuck up on us somewhat. The teams too have had to rush through their preparation and the effects of the one day tournament may still be evident when you look at the two sides today. It's England v Australia, 22 men playing across five gruelling days, five times, all in the name of a little wooden trophy, don't go anywhere.

OUT! Caught. Nathan Lyon to James Anderson. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot slog sweeping, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to silly mid on, by Cummins. Spooned tamely and that is a simple chance for Cummins to end the innings and the session. Really useful runs for England down the order, Woakes and Broad helping them to a lead of 90. Australia's colossal stint in the field has finally come to an end, their four main bowlers will be happy for the opportunity to get some rest as we reach the tea break on Day Three. Wickets tumbled in the morning session but they found it much tougher this afternoon with the pitch really looking devoid of all life. Moeen Ali will certainly be a threat for England this evening and it will be interesting to see what part James Anderson plays after seeming to struggle running between the wickets in that partnership with Chris Woakes. The tourists will need someone in the top order to stick with Steve Smith if they are to set a challenging target.

OUT! Caught. Nathan Lyon to Rory Burns. Off break length ball, off stump on the front foot defending, outside edge to wicketkeeper, by Paine. What a beauty, it was always going to take something special to end this mammoth innings from Burns and Lyon has produced it. The line and length forces the left-hander to defend and then the ball fizzes quickly off the surface to feather the outside edge, with Paine completing a sharp grab behind the stumps. Burns walks off disappointed but there wasn't much he could do about it.

OUT! Caught. Pat Cummins to Ben Stokes. Seaming away back of a length, middle stump on the back foot cutting, top edge to wicketkeeper, by Paine. Breakthrough for the tourists and it's a vital one provided by Pat Cummins. This isn't the greatest delivery he will ever bowl but Australia don't care as they gather to high five the bowler. Stokes is gutted, he thought the ball was there to be hit with a horizontal blade however it has kissed the edge through to a relieved Paine.

Good morning, welcome to coverage of Day Three of the First Ashes Test at Edgbaston. Yesterday saw England take control thanks to a determined maiden century from Rory Burns, putting the hosts just 17 runs behind Australia with six wickets still intact. The Surrey skipper showed admirable grit to defy the tourists, something that has been lacking from the England top order in recent times. With a partisan Birmingham crowd sure to be raucous in the sunshine today cheering on every single run, it could be tough work for the Aussie bowlers who will be more than a tad weary. That said, if they can limit England to something below 400 they will keep themselves in the contest because batting last will be very difficult on a dry surface. Jimmy Anderson has been doing some bowling on the outfield this morning, seemingly recovering from his calf injury in another boost for Joe Root's men.
Over 90. 1 run. Bowler: Nathan Lyon. England: 4-267(rr 2.97)

.
Nathan Lyon to Rory Burns. Off break half volley, middle stump on the front foot pushing, to mid wicket for no runs, fielded by Khawaja. That's stumps and what a day it's been for England and Rory Burns. He's batted all day undefeated, a rare feat in Test cricket in England these days. The hosts trail by just 17 runs with six wickets still in hand and are in a commanding position thanks to their efforts with the bat today. Burns had good support from Root and now Ben Stokes. Australia may feel unlucky when they look at the scoreboard. Many times they beat the outside edge or a false shot found its way through the slip corden without going to hand. Siddle worked hard and took a great return catch to dismiss Joe Root. Both Pattinson and Cummins looked dangerous at times but there is no doubt Australia's four man bowling attack will be weary this evening. That's all for today here at Edgbaston, join us again tomorrow for day three.

That's a beauty from Cummins and he's got the wicket of Buttler. The perfect length and it deviated just enough to take the outside edge. Bancroft dived low to his right and took a good catch.

OUT! L.B.W. James Pattinson to Joe Denly. Seaming in length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, hit pad to. Denly plays a big drive but the ball nips back in and goes through the gate, hitting him on the back pad. There's a big appeal for LBW and Joel Wilson gives it out. Well if there's no inside edge I think Denly is done here, no review and Australia get the breakthrough with this change of ball. In the previous over Pattinson got the ball to swing away from Denly but this time it went straight towards the stumps and then nipped back in.

APPEAL! Peter Siddle to Joe Denly. Seaming in length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, hit pad to first slip for no runs, fielded by Warner, appeal made for L.B.W. The last ball before tea nips back in but it's going over the top, an easy one for Aleem Dar. That brings to an end another really good session for England as they eat into Australia's first innings total. Burns is looking good although the ever-consistent Siddle did dismiss Joe Root who once again fails to convert 50 into 100. Australia you feel have missed a trick and could have bowled a bit better, angling the ball across Burns more often and Lyon has missed his line or length too frequently.

OUT! Caught & Bowled. Peter Siddle to Joe Root. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, in the air uncontrolled to short leg, by Siddle. That's a sharp one-handed return catch from Peter Siddle. Root was driving on the up and hit it very straight, Aleem Dar was taking evasive action. Siddle stuck out his right hand and grabbed the ball mid-flight to pick up a wicket that he's worked hard for. Australia needed that, can they capitalise now?

FOUR! Nathan Lyon to Rory Burns. Off break length ball, off stump on the front foot glancing, well timed past fine leg for 4 runs. Tickled away fine and that will take Burns to 50. He's played a great hand so far and is doing no harm at all in his bid to cement a place at the top of this side.

Pat Cummins to Joe Root. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pushing, to point for no runs, fielded by Lyon. That brings to an end a tough but solid morning of cricket for England. Pattinson caused Roy problems early on and had him caught at second slip but Root and Burns have battled well, slowly but surely building a partnership. Lyon got some sharp turn and he is definitely going to be a factor in this match, perhaps making a good first innings lead even more important for England. All in all though, so far so good for England.

APPEAL! James Pattinson to Joe Root. Seaming away back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot defending, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, by Paine, appeal made for Caught. Big noise, big appeal and up goes the finger! Root reviews straight away. Well I thought at first that must have bowled him but the stumps are intact and he's been given out caught behind. Let's have a look. It's missed the bat comfortably, in fact it's missed the pad too and it did hit the top of off stump! It wobbled around a bit and the bail lifted on one side but then came to rest back in its groove.

OUT! Caught. James Pattinson to Jason Roy. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot defending, outside edge in the air uncontrolled to second slip, by Smith. Edged again and this time the ball goes to hand, third time lucky for Pattinson against Roy. It was a back foot ball this time, Pattinson consistently testing Jason Roy's technique. The ball went off the outside edge and Steve Smith scooped it up low to the ground.

Away off a thick inside edge and England survive a tricky couple of overs at the end of the day, picking up ten runs in the process. So Australia have had their turn with bat in hand and tomorrow it will be England's, the game very nicely poised. After being reduced to 122-8 by Broad and Woakes Australia are back in this game thanks to Steve Smith. Siddle and Lyon provided valuable assistance down the order and if this proves to be a low scoring match they will be vital runs. Join us again tomorrow morning for another day of Test cricket.

Pattinson plonks another one into the stands for good measure, and Paine calls the troops in to declare the innings.So Australia will have seven overs tonight if the light holds up. A very tricky time for England to get through. The hosts have been set 398 to win, which is pretty much impossible with the remaining overs left in the game. Only the draw and an Australia win is likely now. Can the visitors nip a couple out before the close? That would give them huge hope heading into the final day. Vital phase coming up.

OUT! Bowled. Moeen Ali to Tim Paine. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, missed to. That's a pearler from Moeen. That will delight Nathan Lyon, though, who gets to have a bowl on this pitch on the last day. The perfect delivery from an off spinner to a right hander. Fizzed into the rough, ripped back through the gate, and it clatters into the off stump. Not much Paine can do about that.

OUT! Caught. Ben Stokes to Matthew Wade. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, in the air uncontrolled to deep backward square leg, by Denly. Picks out the man perfectly in the deep! This bouncer doesn't get up very high at all, and Wade strikes it pretty cleanly as well. Hit flat and hard, but Denly doesn't have to move. Snaffled right on the boundary edge. Not a lot of celebrations from England. Wade is a bit miffed, but he walks off after a wonderful century.

APPEAL! Moeen Ali to Tim Paine. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the back foot Leave, hit pad to for no runs, appeal made for L.B.W. England use up their last review. Sharp spin outside the off stump as Paine withdraws the bat, but it isn't enough to come back and hit the stumps. HawkEye says it is missing off by a distance.
