| Latest News Headlines | Yahoo news


England’s serious locker room talks about improving shot selection did not bear fruit on Sunday on the opening day of the third Ashes Test, as the Shambolic stick delivered a wicket feast the next day Christmas Party for Australia at Melbourne Cricket Ground. England were eliminated for 185, before Australia reached 61-1 on stumps.

Admittedly, England, humbled in a 275-point loss to Adelaide, faced a tough task to bounce back on Sunday. Australian captain Pat Cummins won the toss and called on under-besieged England to strike first on a green-tinged MCG pitch. England were 61-3 at lunch. Tourists were in serious trouble at 128-6, having lost skipper Joe Root’s key wicket for 50.

England’s resistance with the bat lasted just 65.1 overs. World number one-ranked bowler Cummins (3-36), spinner Nathan Lyon (3-36) and left-arm fast Mitchell Starc (2-54) combined to keep the pressure on the English hitters. A loose shot outside Root’s stump, a questionable cut from Ben Stokes and a savage uprising from Jos Buttler will grab the attention of the English press after another tough day for tourists, who are dragging two to zero in the five-game series. Cummins took first place in England. The skipper took three wickets in the opening session after winning the toss and bowling.

The rain delayed the start of the game by 30 minutes before Cummins took out Haseeb Hameed without scoring and Zak Crawley for 12. Dawid Malan added 48 for the third wicket with Root, before Cummins was awarded in the final before lunch. , as Malan was caught on the first slip for 14. Australia claimed three more wickets midway through the session, dismissing the dangerous duo of Root and Stokes (25). Buttler’s departure for three, after aiming for a savage slog in the middle of Lyon’s bowling alley in the final part before tea, summed up England’s struggles against Australia’s disciplined bowling. World No. 2 batsman Root added to his team’s woes away from the lineup by offering a catch to wicket keeper Alex Carey of Mitchell Starc bowling at 82-4.

Root needs a score of 109 in the second inning to claim a new record for most tests in a calendar year, surpassing the 1788 tally recorded by Pakistani Mohammad Yousuf in 2006. Stokes tried to increase England’s score rate by launching an aggressive cut shot from Cameron Green’s bowling alley, but the southpaw was caught at the ravine at 115-5. Newbie Scott Boland, playing on his home state field, got his first tryout wicket trapping the front leg of Mark Wood much to the delight of the majority of the MCG’s 57,100 fans. Jonny Bairstow hit 35 before falling as he edged out a Starc bouncer at Gully at 159-8. Lyon eliminated tailenders Jack Leach (13) and Ollie Robinson (22). David Warner and Marcus Harris (20 not eliminated) shared an opening position of 57 for Australia. Warner was caught in the ravine of Jimmy Anderson’s bowling alley for 38. Harris required medical attention during the sequel after being punched in the hand by a Stokes bouncer, but survived until the end of the game with the night watchman Nathan Lyon to leave the hosts by ascending again this series.
