Joe Root and England refuse to buckle at the Ashes – The Final Word podcast

Do you know a lost cause when you see one? Emma hails the nerveless Joe Root and Dawid Malan for refusing to fold on day three of the first Test, setting up a proper contest at the Gabba.

Adam and Geoff echo those thoughts as the England pair showed excellent temperament, with the rules of Test cricket continuing to be thrown out of the window and giving Australia plenty to think about.

The Final Word podcast will be here after every day’s play of the Ashes.
