Australia ripped through England to bowl the hosts out for 67 in their first innings on day two of the third Ashes test at Headingley -- their lowest test innings score against Australia since 1948.
Trailing 1-0 in the series, England were looking take advantage of good conditions to surpass Australia's first innings score of 179.
However, Jason Roy's struggles continued as he fell early for nine, before Joe Root followed his golden duck at Lord's by lasting one more ball on his home ground without scoring.

Coming out on 54-6 after the morning session, the wickets continued to fall as Chris Woakes was out first ball after lunch, with Australia making light work of the England tail to embarrass the hosts and open up a first innings lead of 112.
