Ashes Debate Podcast: Steve Smith frustrates England again on day one of fourth Test

  • 6 Oct, 2019

It was a freezing cold and irritating day of the fourth Ashes Test at Old Trafford, one that saw the hosts frustrate more. Smith struck (60no) an eighth half-century at a row from England since the tourists closed a rain-affected afternoon on 170-3. Smith and Marnus Labuschagne (67no) shared in a century stand for the next wicket, and the pair now average a staggering 102.57 joint for the series, with the rest of Australia’s XI working at a diminished 18.51. On the most recent Ashes Debate that you can listen to either above or by downloading here, former England assistant coach Paul Farbace unites Bob Willis and sponsor Charles Colvile to discuss the persistent”thorn in England’s side” Smith, the”disappointing” Jofra Archer and the”superb” Stuart Broad.
