Honours even as Smith helps Aussies fightback: 1st Test, Day 3 (Edgbaston)

Steve Smith batted serenely again after a see-saw third day left the first Ashes Test delicately poised.

Chris Woakes made 37 not out and Stuart Broad 29 to rescue England from a collapse of four wickets for 18 runs, which included 3-4 in 11 balls. They helped the hosts to 374 all out, giving England a handy first-innings lead of 90.

In the second innings, Smith made an effortless 46 not out to take the tourists to 124-3, a lead of 34 when bad light ended play early.

Australia 284 and 124 for 3 (Smith 46*, Head 21*) lead England 374 (Burns 133, Root 57, Stokes 50) by 34 runs.
