Australia One Win Away From History In The Ashes



The Third Ashes Test commences Thursday August 22nd at 7.30pm AEST, LIVE, EXCLUSIVELY and in HD on 9GEM and streamed live on 9Now. 

The action shifts to Headingley following a dramatic Second Test at Lord’s which saw Jofra Archer wreak havoc for England on his Test debut, taking five wickets and hitting Steve Smith with a worrying bouncer, which will ultimately see the in-form star miss the Third Test following his stunning batting heroics thus far in the series.

As the current holder of the Ashes, Australia is only one Test victory away from securing for their first series win in England since 2001, but without Smith they will need top order batsmen David Warner, Cameron Bancroft and Usman Khawaja to step up and deliver some big numbers.
Hosting Nine’s coverage will be Australian sporting legend Todd Woodbridge, alongside former Australian men’s captain Mark Taylor, former Australian women’s star Mel Jones, Aussie wicket-keeping great Ian Healy and former women’s captain Lisa Sthalekar.
Commentary will be provided by a collection of heavyweights of world cricket, such as Aussie and English stars Shane Warne, Ricky Ponting, Michael Atherton, David Lloyd, Isa Guha and more.
