Jonny Bairstow lifts England in the Ashes at last – The Final Word podcast | Sport

For once on this Ashes tour, Emma is left smiling after England’s display, even if Australia won’t be short of sleep. A century, an actual century, thanks to a punchy innings from Jonny Bairstow, along with Ben Stokes’s brave knock.

Adam and Geoff also hail Bairstow’s knock which saved the follow-on, along with Scott Boland’s latest ripping display before being forced off.

The Final Word Ashes Daily podcast is here after every day’s play. You can listen on Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts and Spotify.
