Australia reached 124/3 at stumps against England before bad light stopped play on the third day of the Ashes opener at Edgbaston in Birmingham on Saturday. Australia lead by 34 runs with Steve Smith (46) and Travis Head (21) unbeaten at the crease. Earlier in the day, England were bowled out for 374 in reply to Australia's first-innings 284. The hosts took a lead of 90 runs on Day 3. Rory Burns batted for nearly eight hours to top-score with 133, his maiden Test hundred, in an innings where England captain Joe Root (57) and vice-captain Ben Stokes (50) both hit half-centuries. England lost three wickets for four runs before lunch to slump to 300-8 -- just 16 runs ahead. But a ninth-wicket stand of 65 between Chris Woakes, who made 37 not out on his Warwickshire home ground, and Stuart Broad (29) boosted their total. For Australia, Pat Cummins and Nathan Lyon claimed three wickets apiece. James Pattinson and Peter Siddle also picked two wickets each. (SCORECARD)
