Australia vs England – Ashes: Live score and updates on Day Three

England face an almighty task to avoid defeat in the first Ashes Test after a chastening day two in Brisbane.

Australia start day three with a lead of 196, largely thanks to Travis Head’s 85-ball century and David Warner and Marnus Labuschagne’s half-centuries.

To make matters worse, Ben Stokes suffered a knee injury while Jack Leach also struggled.
