England rocked the Australia top order in overcast conditions at Bellerive Oval on Friday, 14 January. Choosing to bowl first in overcast conditions, the visitors made full use of the green tinge on the pitch and pushed Australia on the backfoot with excellent lines. 

The hosts were three down first just 12 runs in the first 10 overs and could have even lost their fourth one if Zak Crawley could have held onto a chance in the slips.

All among David Warner, Usman Khawaja and Steve Smith found it difficult to negotiate the nip in the pitch and succumbed to the pressure exerted by Ollie Robinson and Stuart Broad.
