Josh Hazlewood scalped a fifer.

Australia are in command in the third Ashes Test as they lead England by 283 runs in Leeds. The visitors were 171/6 at the end of the second day’s play after they bundled out England for a mere 67 in the second session.

Pacemen Josh Hazlewood and Pat Cummins scalped a total of 8 English wickets as England posted their lowest total against Australia since 1948. Hazlewood removed the likes of Jason Roy, Joe Root, Jonny Bairstow and Jos Buttler and concluded his five-wicket haul with Jack Leach’s dismissal.


No other batsman than Joe Denly reached double-figure mark as Australia took a 112-run lead in the first innings.

Later, Stuart Broad had an early wicket after traping David Warner in front of the stumps for a duck. Wickets kept falling at regular intervals but Australia continued to stretch the lead in this third Test. Marnus Labuschagne was unbeaten at 53 at the end of day’s play along with Cummins at the crease.
