Ashes 2023, England vs Australia 3rd Test Day 1 Highlights:

The third Ashes test match between England and Australia at Headingley on Thursday saw a remarkable comeback by Australian all-rounder Mitch Marsh, who celebrated his return to the test team by smashing a century and claiming a wicket. After day one, Australia led England by 195 runs.

Marsh’s impressive run-a-ball innings of 118, in partnership with Travis Head, helped Australia recover from a precarious position of 85-4. In fact, the duo combined for 155 runs, while the rest of the team managed only 108. However, after Marsh’s dismissal at 240-5 just before tea, Australia suffered a collapse and were all out for 263, with fast bowler Mark Wood taking 5-34 on his test return.
