After the captain Joe Root, David Malan has also dismissed soon afterward and after that, the continuation of the fall of wickets continued on one side.

Although fast bowler Stuart Broad played a good inning and scored 56 runs, he made 8 beautiful fours and a tremendous six in this and made the audience happy

Australian fast bowling was not as sharp and they could not even finish the entire England team on the third day today.
The sharpness of the Australian fast bowlers was not visible as it was seen in previous matches
Fast bowler Hazelwood took 3 wickets by Nathan Lyon for 3 wickets and Pat Cummins took three wickets for Australia.
England has taken 164 runs in Australia’s run till the second day’s play ends. Now to see how fast Australia can take a wicket left for England.
Even though his elisor Cook has scored 244 runs, his batting might not work for any of his team because he has lost the series if he did this kind of batting first or second match, England would win the series too.
But this match could win even England but there will be no change in the series win
