Coming out on 54-6 after the morning session, the wickets continued to fall as Chris Woakes was out first ball after lunch, with Australia making light work of the England tail to embarrass the hosts and open up a first innings lead of 112.Josh Hazlewood did the damage with the ball, taking 5-30 as Australia’s pacemen proved too hot to handle for England, who posted their 12th lowest test innings of all time, which lasted less than 28 overs.Josh Hazlewoodlast_img read more
