England 258 all out in second Ashes Test

248

LONDON, Aug 16, 2019 (BSS/AFP) – England were dismissed for 258 by Australia in the second Ashes Test at Lord’s on Thursday.

Only opener Rory Burns (53) and wicketkeeper Jonny Bairstow, last man out for 52, passed fifty after England were sent into bat by Australia captain Tim Paine following a total washout of Wednesday’s first day.

Fast bowler Josh Hazlewood, the only change to the Australia side that won the first Test by 251 runs at Edgbaston last week, led the attack with three wickets for 58 runs from 22 overs.

New-ball partner Pat Cummins took 3-61 from 21 while off-spinner Nathan Lyon equalled Australia pace great Dennis Lillee’s tally of 355 Test wickets with a return of 3-68.

Ashes-holders Australia are looking to win their first Test series away to England for 18 years.
