Chris Woakes triggered the collapse when he had Labuschagne lbw, starting a run which noticed Australian lose three wickets for one run in eleven deliveries. “That’s as well as we’ve bowled for a while,” mentioned England captain Eoin Morgan. “We took advantage of conditions, the ball reverse swung a little bit, went up and down. Our group of four seamers were outstanding.”
