Last updated: 26/12/21 22:53

The third Ashes Test will continue after England players have been given the green light to leave their hotel after a Covid scare.

A little over an hour into the game, the English players had not yet left their hotel for the Melbourne Cricket Ground and were instead “waiting for Covid test results following a positive test in the team’s family group” .

But the rapid flow test results gave England the green light to head to the MCG.

England were eliminated by just 185 on the first day of the Boxing Day Test with Australia having to resume with 61 for one in the first innings, trailing by just 124 points with nine wickets remaining.

The hosts are leading 2-0 after taking full wins in each for the first two games of the Ashes series.
