England in tatters as Joe Root nicks behind

Root

England are four down in no time. Things are unravelling quite dramatically out in the middle at Headingley. Trent Boult hits timber with another inswinger and this time its Zak Crawley who has to make the long walk back to the shed. Tim Southee then bowled one wide of the crease forcing Joe Root to play and the resultant outside edge was pouched. England are waist deep in trouble at 21/4. Ben Stokes and Jonny Bairstow are playing their shots, upholding the old adage of 'attack is the best form of defence'. They want to take on the new-ball merchants and fight their way out of trouble.
