England vs Australia 3rd Ashes Test: TV channel, live stream, cricket start time, team news from Headingley

ONE fearsome spell of fast bowling from Jofra Archer has set this Ashes series alive.

The England pacer tore into the Aussie batsman at Lord's on debut, unveiling a fragility to the short ball and with it potentially robbing the tourists of their talisman Steve Smith for this game.

Australia lead 1-0 heading into the Third Test at Headingley, where Joe Root's men will look to continue the momentum they built up at the Home of Cricket.

When is the third Ashes Test?

AFTER two hard-fought encounters, the series moves north to Leeds.

The third Test will be held at Yorkshire CCC's home Headlingley.

Day One will be on Thursday, August 22 and the Test is scheduled to run for five days until Monday, August 26.

The all-important toss is at 10.30am - weather dependent, of course.

Play will then start at 11am with 90 overs scheduled to be bowled over three sessions.

Which TV channel and live stream can I watch it on?

YOU can catch every delivery live and exclusive on Sky Sports Cricket.

For the duration of the series the channel has been renamed Sky Sports Ashes.

Coverage will begin daily at 10am.

During various parts of the Test, coverage will also be available on Sky Sports Main Event.

If you're not a Sky customer, you can still stream all the action on your mobile, tablet or PC by grabbing a NOW TV pass from just £8.99.

What is the team news?

STEVE SMITH is out of the match after suffering a delayed concussion during the Second Test.

A fearsome bouncer from Jofra Archer crashed into the Aussie's neck and he was ruled out of day five at Lord's.

Marnus Labuschagne is expected  to fill his shoes at No4 with the Australians leading 1-0 in the series.

England have already named an unchanged starting XI, meaning Jason Roy has a chance to turn around his poor form with the bat and announce his arrival in Test cricket.
