England enters Headingley on the third day to find a way to save a result after a terrible second day with the bat.

The total for England was their lowest score against 71 years for Australia.

The old enemy is about to defend the Ashes after developing a 283-point lead on Friday.

The wickets from Marnus Labuschagne, James Pattinson, Pat Cummins, Josh Hazlewood, and Nathan Lyon continue to exist as Australia seized control of the third test.

Batting coach Graham Thorpe from England said: “We are disappointed with the way we hit.

& # 39; It is difficult to take the dressing room when it happens. Test cricket is tough. You can be exposed if you don't do it right.

& # 39; We know that we have missed a chance to put Australia under pressure. There are no apologies. & # 39;
