Aussie Batters Up Against Rain, England Pace

Rain could pour water on Australia’s quest for an Ashes sweep. Having already retained the urn, Australia lost the advantage of opting to bat first against England in Sydney after rain forced four stoppages and ultimately ended play early on Wednesday. More rain is predicted and it remains to be seen if England bowlers can exploit the overcast conditions on a greenish pitch. After rain delays permitted only 21 completed overs in the opening two sessions , runs and wickets came more frequently in the final passage of play as Australia reached 126 for 3 at stumps. All three Aussie batters — David Warner, Marcus Harris and Marnus Labuschagne — squandered good starts as English pacers James Anderson, Mark Wood and Stuart Broad bagged a wicket each.  Steve Smith was unbeaten on six and Usman Khawaja was four not out when rain ended play for the day.
