Ashes Day 5 DELAYED until at least 1.10pm as fans fear mouthwatering England vs Australia final day will be torpedoed

DAY FIVE of the first Ashes test between England and Australia has been delayed due to rain.

Tuesday’s lunch break is set to be taken early at 12:30pm, so there will be no play before 1:10pm at the earliest.

Day five has been delayed until after lunch due to rain

Play at Edgbaston will not start until 1:10pm at the earliest

Cricket fans have understandably been left frustrated by the delay, with one person tweeting: “Noooooo!! The suspense is killing me!!”

Another complained: “Typical British weather!!!!!”

A third added: “It’s not looking good nah.”

While a fourth simply wrote: “Fuming.”

However, some believe the pause in play could be a blessing in disguise.

One fan wrote: “This could be one of the best days in Ashes cricket.”

Another agreed, adding: “Afternoon session could be an absolute belter.”

While a third person wrote: “You’ve just got to love the drama of it all haven’t you.”


England need seven wickets to win the first test, while Australia go into day five needing 174.

Stuart Broad was the hero on Monday after his stunning late double kept England’s dream of winning the first test alive.
