England have been bowled out for 185 after what was another shambolic batting display from the guests. Australia needed just 65.1 overs to wind up the demolition job. Pat Cummins won the toss and opted to bowl, and took the task of vindicating the decision into his own hands as he picked up three early wickets in the opening session. Cameos of resistance were offered by Joe Root, Dawid Malan, Ben Stokes and Jonny Bairstow, but it wasn’t enough as England couldn’t even reach 200, failing to do so for the 13th time in Tests in 2021.
