(Video) England allowed breathing space as dollies go down

Scott Boland had Ollie Pope nicking to the wicketkeeper in an inspired spell, and the seamer should have had Chris Woakes too but the England all-rounder was reprieved twice in the slip cordon, once by David Warner and another time by Usman Khawaja. Pat Cummins was the wrecker-in-chief through the middle session on day two of the Hobart Test that saw a floundering England slip to 124/6 in reply to Australia’s 303. The Australian captain dismissed Joe Root and Dawid Malan before Mitchell Starc and Boland added a wicket each to leave England gasping.
