The BBC News and Sport websites provide comprehensive live coverage from the world's major events, but we want to make your experience even better.
To keep our users as up to date as possible this page now updates automatically with the latest events without the user needing to refresh the page.
This means we can combine our live text with live video when we have it as the automatic updates do not make the video player reload.
Unfortunately we experienced a few problems on the first day of the first Ashes Test between England and Australia, which meant that users viewing the page in certain browsers, including Safari and Google Chrome, did not see the text updates automatically.

The development process of new features includes frequent usability testing with real users. These design principles and this iterative testing will continue.
