Emma looks back as England go for an all-pace attack and leave out their fastest bowler, while Australia react to Pat Cummins being ruled out by being pinged as a close Covid contact.
Adam and Geoff then look over England’s tactics in the field, coming up with very different views, before discussing Jos Buttler’s catching troubles as the hosts push on through David Warner and Marnus Labuschagne.
