Australia vs England, 3rd Ashes Test Day 1 Live Cricket Score: Hello and welcome to the live score and updates of the 3rd AUS vs ENG Test from the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG). Australia started from where they left in Adelaide and wrapped up the England innings on 185. England captain Joe Root was the only batter from the English camp, who showed some resistance and scored a half-century. Among the Aussie bowlers it was their captain Pat Cummins and Nathan Lyon, who returned with three wickets each. The hosts lead the five-match series 2-0 and will be the favourites going into the Test match. Following their comprehensive wins in Brisbane and Adelaide, Australia have handed a surprise debut to Scott Boland, showing a glimpse of what the team bench may be capable of. The 32-year-old Boland will be the first indigenous Australian Test player since Jason Gillespie when he gets his baggy green on the opening day. Boland joins Cummins and Mitchell Starc in the pace-bowling attack after Josh Hazlewood was sidelined by a side strain. Jhye Richardson and Michael Neser are also out of the Boxing Day Test, having suffered after-effects of playing in the second Test. For England, there are four changes. In the bid to keep their Ashes hopes alive, the Joe Root-side has recalled Mark Wood and spinner Jack Leach in place of Stuart Broad and Chris Woakes.
