Ashes 2019: Twitter erupts as Josh Hazlewood’s fifer skittles England for a paltry 67

Posted On

Australian pacer Josh Hazlewood (5-30) ripped through England to bowl the hosts out for a paltry 67 in their first innings on day two of the third Ashes Test at Headingley.


Joe Denly, with 12, was the only England batsman to reach double figures in an innings that lasted a mere 27.5 overs, with captain Joe Root out for his successive duck.

England’s total was also their lowest in Ashes series since 1948 and seven fewer than what Smith’s replacement Marnus Labuschagne scored off his bat on Thursday.


With Steve Smith ruled out of the match, this was being considered as England’s best chance of registering a win and making it 1-1 in the five-match series. But the 50-over world champions are well behind in the contest now.
