OUT! L.B.W. Chris Woakes to Travis Head. Seaming in length ball, to leg on the back foot working, hit pad to. That's thumped into the pads and up goes the finger. Head was caught on the crease, going back to a ball that nipped back in off the pitch. Head chats with his captain until the clock has almost run down then decides to review. There's no bat, the ball beats the inside edge and it's three reds on Hawk-Eye.

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.

Good length from Moeen and he wasn't sure whether to play forward or back. The ball came off the edge but it went down and wide of slip and Head gets four streaky runs.

OUT! Caught. Ben Stokes to Travis Head. Leg cutter back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, outside edge to wicketkeeper, by Bairstow. England finally have that breakthrough! Some relief around the home crowd. Ben Stokes is the man to do it. Change in pace, bit of width, so Head wafts the bat at it. Don't think the Australian picked it, and he got a chunky nick behind to Bairstow. It just about carried to the keeper, and he swallowed it up.

Head is totally unsure how to play Denly here, and plays all around it. The ball skids past the outside edge, and he falls out the crease. It keeps low, and bounces off Bairstow's pads to safety.

APPEAL! Stuart Broad to Travis Head. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot working, hit pad to short leg for no runs, fielded by Woakes, appeal made for L.B.W. There's a huge shout for LBW first up from Broad. Wide angle from round the wicket to the left hander, so the umpire probably think this is sliding down the legside. HawkEye says it was clipping. Close call.

The light has deteriorated very quickly in the last 15 minutes and the umpires deem it to be unfit for play so that will be the end of Day Three at Edgbaston. It's been another enthralling day as this series really begins to kick into gear, the balance shifting back and forth with regularity. Australia had the better of the morning session before Chris Woakes and Stuart Broad combined to frustrate them, pushing England's lead up towards 90. Then a couple of early wickets had the tourists on the back foot until Steve Smith once again looked in command with the bat in hand. It leaves things tantalisingly poised heading into tomorrow so be sure to join us again.

FOUR! Joe Root to Travis Head. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, top edge in the air uncontrolled past third man for 4 runs. Slashed past slip, Head finally gets a boundary after almost an hour in the middle. If anyone would have been capable of catching it Stokes would be the man, but it was past him before he could react.
