Ashes 2017 Live Cricket Score Australia vs England: Australia were off to a steady start. (Source: AP)
Australia were off to a steady start after David Warner and Cameron Bancroft compiled a partnership of 122 runs for the first wicket. The left-right batting combination stood strong as England failed to pick any wickets in first session. But the post-lunch session saw Chris Woakes trapping Bancroft in front of the stumps to give the visitors their first breakthrough. Australia have already captured the Ashes trophy but still they will aim for a clean sweep in the Ashes series. They face England in the fourth Test of the five-match series at the Melbourne Cricket Ground on Thursday. The Boxing Day Test will be one of the most attended on day one at the MCG and Australia would like to make it a memorable one. Steve Smith, leading the Australian team to Ashes victory, is in fine form and can help them take one more step closer to the whitewash. He has two centuries already in this series and MCG is a ground he loves to bat on. Australia bowlers have been brilliant as well. England have two rebuild in almost every aspect of their game. With two Tests remaining, they can still salvage some pride by winning the two and showing that they are not a team in complete doldrums at the moment. But against a cheered up Australia team with not much to lose, it will not be the easiest of jobs on the cricket field.
