It was an excruciatingly sad and cruel end to a resolute 207-ball stay as Jos Buttler went a bit too deep in the crease to block Jhye Richardson and trodded onto the stumps. England’s hopes were pinned on Buttler and he was looking on course to stonewalling England to a stalemate. Australia are now just a wicket away but England’s lower order has made them work hard to get past. To acknowledge the rearguard, the entire Australian team dug-out applauded Jos Buttler all the way off the field.
What a way to end an epic innings! 😲
