England were dismissed for just 67 on the second day of the third Ashes Test against Australia at Headingley on Friday.

Fast bowler Josh Hazlewood took five wickets for 30 runs, with England’s collapse leaving them 112 runs behind after Australia made 179 in their first innings.

Joe Denly, with 12, was the only batsman to reach double figures in an innings that lasted a mere 27.5 overs, with England captain Joe Root out for his second successive duck.

All-rounder Ben Stokes came into this match following an unbeaten 115 in the second innings at Lord’s.

Stokes was out for eight and England were 34-4.

England’s total was their 12th lowest in Test cricket and seven fewer than the 74 Marnus Labuschagne — replacing concussed star Australia batsman Steve Smith — scored off his own bat on Thursday.

Australia lead the five-match series 1-0 and victory in Leeds would see them retain the Ashes.
