Cricket…bloody hell! We waited a long time for the start of the 2019 Ashes, and it has seriously delivered already. We go in to a tense fifth day today, with Australia in the ascendancy thanks to another extraordinary century from Steve Smith. It’s all about saving the draw (and maybe even praying for rain). For our part, we’ve put together this guide to watching an England vs Australia 1st Test live stream from wherever you happen to be in the world. 

Steve Smith saved his Australian teammates on day 1 of the 1st Test and put them into a winning position on day 4. The result may still be in doubt, but his status of man of the match is not. His prized wicket will be a narrative that runs throughout this year’s Ashes series.

Rory Burns and Jason Roy are opening the batting with Joe Root slotting in at three in the order. England will have to bat deep today, and expect a LOT of overs to be bowled by off-spinner Nathan Lyon.

Aussie skipper Tim Paine kept his cards close to his chest regarding his line up, but Steve Smith, David Warner and Cameron Bancroft are all making their first Test appearances since the South Africa ball tampering scandal. They’ve chosen fast bowler Peter Siddle over Mitchell Starc, in the biggest surprise in the XI.

Follow the instructions below to watch all of the coverage of the Ashes from Edgbaston. We’ll tell you how to grab an England vs Australia 1st Test live stream from pretty much anywhere on Earth.
