What could have been more embarrassing for England, on a sunny afternoon on home soil, bowled out on 67, which is their lowest ever score at Headingley and their lowest against Australia since 1948.

It has been a superb bowling performance from Josh Hazlewood. He pitched 69% on a good length, 65% on a good line and 44% on a good line and length & let the conditions do the rest.

Though he didn’t find much swing (0.38°) but movement off the pitch (0.80°) did a fabulous job with the ball.

The scorecard is telling the complete story:

67 for all out by England becomes their lowest Test innings score at Headingley.

England have been bowled out for 85 or less on 4 occasions in Test cricket since March 2018.

Day two of the third Ashes Test is underway at the Headingley.
