LEEDS, England (Reuters) – Jofra Archer removed Australia opener Marcus Harris to leave Australia on 12-1 at lunch as rained hampered the start of the third Ashes test at Headingley on Thursday.

Play got under way late in damp conditions in West Yorkshire, with Stuart Broad and Archer bowling well, Broad almost tempting David Warner into edging the ball on more than one occasion.

But it was Warner’s opening partner Harris, the replacement for Cameron Bancroft at the top of the order, who fell first, caught behind off Archer for eight.

Rain took the players off immediately after Harris’ dismissal, and lunch was taken early, with just four overs having been bowled in the morning session.
