"It's been a fascinating series because you just don't know what's going to to happen... It is a great ground we get fantastic support here but I think I'm a bit bias! The guys who played the ODI here at the start of the year say the support was fantastic and I think we'll get that again."

England lost the wicket of Peter Nevill in the first hour of day three, but made steady progress.

Steven Finn had Nevill caught behind for 59, as Australia moved to 81 runs ahead, which won't worry England too much.

Mitchell Starc is still at the crease on 36 non out.

England fear Jimmy Anderson absence in Fourth Test

England are on the brink of a 2-1 Ashes lead at Edgbaston, but already appear to be bracing themselves for James Anderson's absence from next week's fourth Test.

Anderson had to leave the field mid-over on day two in Birmingham, wincing in pain with an injury England later described as a "tight side".

Steven Finn had much to do with England's surge towards a mid-series advantage, taking five for 45 to push his match tally up to seven wickets in his comeback Test after two years out of the team.

But even as he reflected on that heartening success so far, Finn admitted concerns that Anderson - who took six first-innings wickets here - may not be fit to take part on his happiest hunting ground of all in Nottingham next week.

He said:

For Jimmy to walk off halfway through an over, it can't be too good. But who knows - with some magical medical healing and some rehab, you never know.

Jimmy loves bowling at Trent Bridge - everyone knows that. If he was to miss it, it would be a big loss - but we don't know yet.
