Ashes 2017-18: Australia v England third Test, day five – live!

This is actually hilarious. The groundstaff are scrambling the big cover back on, the wind keeps blowing it away and nearly takes a few of them with it. They genuinely look like it’s never rained here before. Maybe it hasn’t? The ABC radio box is in hysterics watching the slapstick unfold. Between laughter, Chris Rogers is noting the holes in the technique. “It rained then, and hard, for a good 30 seconds before they got the hessian on. It’s almost like they were surprised again, and had to get to…

Mystery Solved: Satellite images reveal lost empire in Afghanistan

The new discovery by archaeologists comes from decades of spy satellites and drones.

In reply, Australia were going ominously well at 203-3 but with their captain unbeaten and largely untroubled on 82 and Shaun Marsh on seven not out. England will tell themselves they remain in the game but will have been kicking themselves at the close having dropped three catches on a day when chances did…

The top had a high sweetheart neckline and flared-out batwing sleeves which did nothing to flatter Ivanka’s slim figure. It was paired with black trousers…
