Live: The Ashes come to Hobart for historic fifth Test

Ashes fifth Test in Hobart, live updates

Hello and welcome to the ABC Sport coverage of Australia vs England in the fifth and final Ashes Test at Hobart with me, Simon Smale and later, Jon Healy, with Dean Bilton also on hand.

It’s a historic moment as Bellerive Oval becomes the latest ground to host an Ashes Test match.

Australia have long-since wrapped up the series, but England fought tooth and nail in Sydney to save themselves from being whitewashed and restore some pride.

It came amidst some extraordinary scenes, with nine men behind the bat, Steve Smith bowling his leg spin in fading light, Ben Stokes covering his face with his shirt – unable to watch.

It was extraordinary and highlighted the very best of what long-form cricket can be.

There are selection questions for both teams, with injuries ravaging England, while Australia is spoiled for choice with its embarrassment of riches with ball and bat.

We’re all set for an intriguing Test, so we’re thrilled to have you with us.
