In what can be termed as a ‘must-win’ game for England, Joe Root’s men failed to deliver anything noteworthy in only the second day of the third Ashes Test, as Josh Hazlewood’s five-fer, followed by Pat Cummins’s three and James Pattinson’s two bowled England out for a mere 67.

Apart from Joe Denly, who scored 12, none of the other players even managed to reach double figures. However, England's slump was no great surprise, but rather the latest in a line of recent Test collapses that have seen them dismissed for 58 by New Zealand (Auckland 2018), 77 by the West Indies (Bridgetown 2019) and 85 by Ireland at Lord's last month.

Their slump, understandably, hasn’t been taken well by the supporters. For the Australian fans and the neutrals, they have become the ‘troll of the town’ after such a questionable performance.

Saving the best for the end:

While the English fans will hope that the current World Champions do rise from the ashes, their Australian counterparts are basking in glee.
