England’s batting faltered once again on Saturday in front of Australia’s fast bowling. England started their first innings poorly where Rory Burns was run out for zero. The visiting team looked lame at 126 for the loss of six wickets on the second day of the fifth day-night Ashes Test with 179 runs to spare.

Unbeaten wicketkeeper Sam Billings along with Chris Woakes, who was dismissed twice in an unbeaten five, will resume for the final session at the Bellerive Oval in Hobart.

From the other side in the inaugural season, the visiting team was seen bowling out Australia for 303 but were on the backfoot when they came out to bat for Rory Burns to be run out by a direct hit from Marnus Labuschagne. .

Afterwards, Zak Crowley was soon removed by Australian captain Patt Cummins and the Australian captain returned just after the break to break the partnership between Joe Root and David Malan, threatening to add some strength to England’s innings.

Malan, soon at 25, departed when he got the edge off a Cummins delivery down the leg side and wicket-keeper Alex Carey honked behind the stumps. England captain Root, on the other hand, scored 34 when Cummins trapped him for a four in front and then Nathan Lyon dismissed him brilliantly on point.

Moving forward, Ollie Pope was soon sent to the pavilion by Scott Boland. Ollie Pope was caught for just 14 runs and pacemaker Scott Boland would have removed Woakes again for a golden duck had David Warner not dropped the catch at slips. This gave Woakes a second chance. Another golden opportunity was missed for the Australian team when Usman Khawaja dropped a catch. Usman Khawaja was on the slip side.

England’s hopes of a win at the end after three heavy losses and a draw so far in the series were high after Australia were reduced to 3-12 at the start of the first day.

It’s been a rough times for the English team recently where there poor performance and mounting pressure has created a lot of fuss around. In recent, English captain had to face a lot of criticism online as well as from senior player like Ricky Ponting. The Australian captain slams Joe Root by asking what he is doing on the field. The remarks came after England captain Joe Root was vocal about his disappointment with the bowlers.

After England was thrashed by 275 runs in the day-night Test in Adelaide, Root insisted that the bowlers needed to pitch the ball fuller and perform more brilliantly. The former Australian captain said it was Root’s duty to see at what lengths his bowlers were bowling, rather than point fingers at the end of the match. Ponting criticized the English captain, saying that he almost fell from his seat after hearing Root’s statement. He kept saying that Root can say whatever he wants but if he can’t influence his bowlers on which line length to bowl then what is he doing on the field.

It was not finish here for Root, the former Australian legend Ian Chappell was also seen slamming Joe Root for his poor performance.
