England collapse hands Australia Headingley advantage
Australia have taken control of the third Ashes Test against England as they will take a 283-run lead into day three at Headingley.
The tourists know they will successfully retain the urn if they secure victory in West Yorkshire and they are well placed to achieve that feat after moving onto 171-6 in their second innings.
James Pattinson (2no) and Marnus Labuschagne (53no) will resume day three at the crease, although the latter did ride his luck at times, as he was dropped twice and was caught behind off a no-ball.
England had started day two in a strong position after bowling Australia out on day one for just 179, but, not for the first time in the series, the hosts failed to deliver with the bat, as they were all out for just 67 - there lowest total against Australia since 1948.
Joe Denly (12) was the only England batsman to reach double figures, with Josh Hazlewood proving to be the pick of the Australia bowlers, as he took figures of 5-30.
England now have it all to do on day three, but the late dismissals of Matthew Wade (33) and Australia captain Tim Paine (0) have at least given them hope heading into Saturday's action.
However, a lot could depend on the fitness of Jofra Archer, who took six wickets during Australia's first innings, as he briefly left the field with cramp in his left thigh and, although he returned, he must now be considered a major doubt to bowl on Saturday.
