Ton-up Marsh makes England pay for dropped catch in 3rd Ashes Test

Ton-up Marsh makes England pay for dropped catch in 3rd Ashes Test

Popular News

Australia's Mitchell Marsh marked his first Test in nearly four years with a blistering hundred as he made England pay for dropping him at Headingley on Thursday.
Australia were reeling at 85-4 following the exit of Steve Smith on the opening day of the third Test.
But at tea they had recovered to 240-5, with Marsh out off what became the last delivery of the session for a run-a-ball 118 when he inside edged Chris Woakes off his thigh to Zak Crawley at second slip.
Together with Travis Head, he put on 155 for the fifth wicket in just 28 overs and England's woes were compounded by paceman Ollie Robinson limping off shortly before the interval with a back spasm. Woakes, however, should have had Marsh out for 12 soon after lunch.
