Pakistan Press Club – Perth.

Aussie fast bowler Josh Hazlewood destroyed England cricket dreams and saved Australia’s blushes yesterday with a clutch bowling performance in Adelaide that could secure the Ashes.

 

A nerve-wracking 36 hours for Australia was erased in an instant by the big-right armer, and England are now facing a chastening series defeat at 2-0 down heading into the third test in Perth after Australia romped to a 120-run win in the inaugural day-night Ashes test.

Day five started firmly in the balance; England needing 178 runs and Australia six wickets. But in the first over Hazlewood claimed Chris Woakes before removing dangerman Joe Root in the third over to effectively end England’s chances.

 

Australia had no reviews left after burning them on night four, but umpire Aleem Dar gave them the rub of the green on the Woakes’ dismissal. His edge behind was so faint, Dar took ages to put up his finger. DRS replays failed to show anything on hot spot but a shimmer on snicko sealed Woakes’ fate.
