It’s finally time! Good evening everyone, welcome to our LIVE coverage of the First Ash Test in Brisbane.
The talk is coming to an end as Joe Root’s men embark on a quest to reclaim the coveted Ashes vase from their greatest rivals.
It’s been a tough build for a number of reasons, but we’re close to getting the Five Challenges battle underway at The Gabba.
Australia have historically excelled at their fortress Queensland, but their last test match here ended in a rather conspicuous defeat in January.
The Gabba Walls were breached by India in a brilliant victory to mark the streak, and England will be looking to inflict more pain on an ailing Aussie Test team.
The game kicks off at midnight UK time – pitching will be at 11:30pm, at which point we’ll see the England lineup.
Hope you have plenty of coffee and snacks ready as it’s going to be a long night.
