England fell to their eighth-lowest Ashes total after being bundled for 67 in just 27.5 overs in their first innings in the 3rd Test at Headingley cricket ground in Leeds. The total was also England's worst total in an Ashes innings since 1948 when they were skittled for 52 runs at the Oval. Josh Hazlewood claimed his five-wicket haul in Test matches as only one batsman managed to score in double figures while the other 10 fell for single-digit scores. Twitter brutally trolled England for their failure to take the lead despite bowling out Australia for 179 in the opening day. Australia vs England Live Cricket Score 3rd Test.

Catching some comedy at the @edintfest. Some guy just came away with the best joke of the Festival: England all out for 67 against Australia. Side-splitting 😂. #ENGAUS #ENGvAUS @bbctms Embarrassing doesn't quite cover it.

Their embarrassing collapse saw Australia claim at 112-run lead heading into the second innings and favourites to retain the Ashes. Australia already lead the five-match Ashes Test series 1-0 after thrashing the world champions by 251 runs in the opening game. The second game ended in a draw.
The 45 that England managed at Sydney in 1887 is their lowest ever Ashes score, while 52 at Oval in 1948 is England's lowest Ashes total at home. 67 is the eighth overall lowest total fourth-lowest inning score at home.
