Scorecard

InPlay – Day One

On a day interrupted again by the weather, England managed to bowl out Australia for just 179 – mainly thanks to Jofra Archer 6-45, who bowled brilliantly again for England. But for battling knocks from David Warner 61 and Marnus Labuschagne 74, Australia would have been in a really sorry state.
