Auto update

5:14AM

OVER 9: AUS 7/2 (Labuschagne 0 Smith 0)        

A superb start from England after winning the toss and opting to bowl. 

Just what Joe Root would have envisaged – both openers back in the shed, the ball doing a decent amount and Australia’s big two at the crease early on.

Green pitch, grey skies and the ball nipping about – this tweet looking fairly prescient,

5:12AM

WICKET! Khawaja c Root b Broad 6

Angled in, nibbles away, catches the edge and snaffled by the England captain at first slip!

Australia in a little bit of trouble early on in Hobart.

FOW 7/2

5:08AM

OVER 8: AUS 7/1 (Labuschagne 0 Khawaja 6)       

What an over from Robinson to Labuschagne! The Australian No 3 survives by the skin of his teeth.

He’s beaten all ends up with the first two balls of the over, then pats back the next ball solidly enough.

Then Robinson finds the edge… but it’s dropped by Crawley diving in front of Root who wouldn’t have had to move to catch it!

Another beauty beats the bat again and then Labuschagne leaves the final ball alone. Terrific stuff from Robinson.

5:03AM

OVER 7: AUS 7/1 (Labuschagne 0 Khawaja 6)      

Khawaja’s thick outside edge squirts away behind point for a couple, before he shovels a drive down the ground for two more.

Broad won’t be too disappointed to see him continuing to drive at deliveries in and around off-stump though, with the ball darting about a bit.

4:59AM

OVER 6: AUS 3/1 (Labuschagne 0 Khawaja 2)     

It’s been a superb start from England after winning the toss and inserting the Aussies – and Robinson removes Warner for a 21-ball duck.

That’s a wicket maiden too. Just two runs off the bat from the first six overs.

4:57AM

WICKET! Warner c Crawley b Robinson 0

England have the deserved breakthrough! Robinson draws Warner into a defensive push and catches the outside edge – with Crawley taking a smart grab at second slip!

FOW 3/1

4:52AM

OVER 5: AUS 3/0 (Warner 0 Khawaja 2)    

The Australians sneak through for a leg bye, before Khawaja launches into a flashing drive at Broad… and hits nothing but air!

Another decent over from Broad.

4:49AM

OVER 4: AUS 2/0 (Warner 0 Khawaja 2)   

Some encouragement for Broad in the previous over – and more here for Robinson!

From over the wicket to Khawaja he gets one to dart a long way past the left-hander’s bat.

Rueful smile from Khawaja as the ball sailed through to Billings. It did too much really and started a bit too wide to do any damage, but decent signs for the England bowlers.

Then another teasing delivery in the fourth/fifth-stump channel draws Khawaja into a play and miss.

Testing start for the Aussie batsmen.

4:45AM

OVER 3: AUS 2/0 (Warner 0 Khawaja 2)  

Close! Warner a bit late on one from Broad and nearly chops on – the ball just squeezes past leg stump.

Some encouragement for Broad here as he angles the ball in, hits the seam and gets one to jag away.

Warner digs out a yorker and then defends out to gully. Two maidens in a row for Broad.

4:41AM

OVER 2: AUS 2/0 (Warner 0 Khawaja 2) 

Robinson bang on the money straight away – beating Khawaja’s bat twice in succession in the fourth-stump channel.

Then he strays a little too straight and is worked away down to long leg for a couple.

Khawaja defends stoutly and then leaves the final ball of the over well alone.

4:36AM

OVER 1: AUS 0/0 (Warner 0 Khawaja 0)

Good start from Broad, who raps Warner on the thigh pad first up, and tumbles to the turf in the process.

Half-hearted appeal with Warner playing no shot but it was going over the stumps.

Warner miscues an attempted drive, getting a thick inside edge into the leg side for none and ends the over skewing into the cordon with soft hands – all along the floor though.

4:31AM

Broad v Warner

To get us under way. Around the wicket as per, with three slips and a gully.

4:27AM

The players are out on the field

National anthems coming up and then we will be good to go.

4:17AM

Ponting hails Billings

4:06AM

Here’s the Australia XI

Warner, Khawaja, Labuschagne, Smith, Head, Green, Carey, Cummins, Starc, Lyon, Bolland.

4:02AM

England win the toss and will bowl first

Joe Root says it was a tricky choice but cites “overhead conditions, the slightly tacky nature to the wicket and a tinge of grass” for his decision.

4:00AM

Five changes for England

As per our chief cricket correspondent Nick Hoult.

3:47AM

Confirmation the toss will be at 4am

So hopefully we won’t have too much of a delay…

3:45AM

Some reading on the 700th man to represent England in Tests

Sam Billings will make his Test debut today (weather permitting!) – meet the ‘driven posh boy’ finally ready to prove his worth to England.

3:39AM

Toss delayed due to rain

Not the news anyone wants to hear on the first morning of a Test.

11:18AM

Good morning

Hello and welcome to Telegraph Sport’s live coverage of the first day of the fifth and final Ashes Test between England and Australia in Hobart.

It was an unfamiliar feel at Hobart’s Bellerive Oval as England’s Mark Wood addressed the media on the eve of the final Ashes Test (Isabelle Westbury writes). Unfamiliar because it’s both the venue’s first Ashes match and its first Test with a pink ball. And while playing Test cricket for your country will occupy the players’ minds first and foremost, even if the series is long gone, there’s much to look ahead to as well.

Like this year’s Indian Premier League. Wood, who regularly reaches bowling speeds in excess of 90 miles per hour, is a lucrative commodity on the white ball circuit, just as he is spearheading England’s red-ball attack. And with Mitchell Starc, who has a prolific record in day-night cricket, already suggesting that the pink ball closely mirrors the effect of the white ball, if Wood can put in a good stint at Hobart, England’s paceman could see his stock quickly rise.

“I am [entering the IPL auction] at the minute,” Wood confirmed, ahead of the final Test. The deadline for players to register for the auction is the end of this week, with the IPL set to run over April and May.

“If I look ahead to the World Cup and I can learn something in the IPL, if I can put myself in pressure situations and try and get better for the end of the year, that’ll be good.”

“I withdrew just before,” Wood explained, of his decision not to play in last year’s IPL. “I was umming and ahhing but felt that, with a long time away…

“From a financial side of things, it’s great to go in. But actually, the reason I’d want to go in [this year’s IPL auction] is cricketing reasons because of what’s to come with England. I just felt the reason I’d have gone last year was purely financial and the time I’d miss with my son I’d never get back.”
