It was almost a horizontal effort from the opener in the slip cordon. Having lost six wickets in the first session, England were up against it and collapsed soon after the break. Australia lost Warner for a duck, Broad trapping him in front.

Marcus Harris (19) and Usman Khawaja (23) could not convert their starts with Jack Leach and Chris Woakes accounting for their wickets respectively. Travis Head (25) was castled by Stokes and Wade was caught behind off the same bowler. Aussies skipper Tim Paine's woeful form continued with the bat as he got out without scoring.

Brief Scores: 1st innings Australia: 179; England: 67 all out (Hazlewood 5/30, Cummins 3/23; 2nd innings: Australia 171/6 (Marnus Labuschagne 53 batting, Ben Stokes 2/33, Stuart Broad 2/34 - At Stumps.
