Latest on Ashes

From Morning Report, 8:41 am on 19 June 2023

To the Ashes cricket, and England were hit by a one-two punch from Australia late on day three at Edgbaston, leaving the first test tantalisingly poised.

Openers Ben Duckett and Zak Crawley were removed cheaply before rain intervened, as England limped to 28 for two, leading by 35 runs.

There was also a tinge of controversy, with England spinner Moeen Ali fined for applying a spray to his bowling hand during the second day's play.

BBC cricket journalist Henry Moeran spoke to Morning Report.
