Pat Cummins to Chris Woakes
OUT! TAKEN! The captain takes a five-fer. A short ball, on middle. Chris Woakes pulls it but does not middle it. The ball goes off the top edge towards Josh Hazlewood in the deep again. He has to work hard as he runs across from fine leg and takes a diving catch. He plucks it just above the ground. Almost a carbon copy of the catch he took at backward square leg of Pope. Sensational stuff from Josh Hazlewood and England are all out for 147. THAT WILL ALSO BE TEA ON DAY 1!

OUT! CAUGHT! What a catch from Josh Hazlewood in the deep! Cameron Green bags his maiden Test wicket and enters the wickets column as well. Green bowls a back-of-a-length delivery, on middle. The ball gets a little too big for Ollie Pope as he tries to pull. He is slightly late on his shot and the ball goes off the top edge towards deep backward square leg. Josh Hazlewood has to cover quite a ground as he runs from fine leg and runs to his left. He keeps his eyes on the ball, makes a full-stretch dive and manages to grab the ball. A stunner from him. Cameron Green is elated and so is Australia! They have been all over England.

A wicket of the first ball and Australia are delighted. The players are all over Mitchell Starc. Rory Burns has to take the long walk back and goes without troubling the scorers.

Jack Leach to Travis Head
FIVE RUNS! Oh dear! Full and outside off. Head comes down the track and smashes it to mid off for a single. Ben Stokes collects the ball and has a shy at the keeper's end. Pat Cummins makes his ground with a dive. The throw is a wild one and it goes past Jos Buttler and dribbles away into the fence. Jack Leach is not happy with that at all.

MISFIELD, FOUR! Oopsy, what happened there? Short, around leg, Head pulls it to deep backward square leg. There are shouts of 'CATCH IT!' but Haseeb Hameed over there does not spot the ball at all. He looks to his left, then his right and in the end, realizes that the ball is coming at him. Runs forward but the ball bounces in front of him and worse, hits his body and deflects behind. It lobs in the air and Hameed looks to stop it off the rebound but too late, the ball is beyond the ropes! Oh dear, that is right in front of a vocal 'Gabba crowd and it is cheering!

FOUR! Edgy! Loopy ball, on middle. Travis Head steps out and looks to cut. The ball goes off the outside edge and goes past the keeper's gloves to third man for a boundary. Moves onto 46 now! Bit strange from Root and Leach. They have a leg slip for Head but no conventional slip. Had that conventional slip been there, it would have gone straight to him. Possibly because Leach has been expensive, it has forced Root to go defensive and it has cost them a potential wicket. That too, of the last recognized batter.

OUT! That's a snorter and Pat Cummins has taken out Ben Stokes. The sixth wicket goes down for England and they still trail by 12 runs. Once again the extra bounce that Cummins generates has done the trick. He is a beast with the new ball. Lands it around leg and gets it to jump a tad extra off the deck. Stokes is squared up slightly in his stance as he tries to work it on the leg side but closes the face of his bat early. The ball lobs off the leading edge and Cameron Green grabs the catch safely at gully. The replays show that it took the shoulder of his bat. The Aussies are ecstatic, England's talisman is gone.

Nathan Lyon to Dawid Malan
OUT! CAUGHT! Finally! Finally! Nathan Lyon has scaled the mountain of 400 wickets in Test cricket, it has been an arduous climb, to be honest, as Lyon had to spend extra time in preying that elusive one wicket. He is only behind two greats, Shane Warne and Glenn McGrath, in the list of the leading wicket-takers for Australia in Test cricket. From being a pitch curator at the Adelaide Oval to becoming only the 7th spinner in Test cricket history to do so after the famous six - Muttiah Muralitharan, Shane Warne, Anil Kumble, Rangana Herath, Harbhajan Singh and Ravichandran Ashwin, it's been one heck of a ride. Now coming to the delivery, it's nicely flighted and around off, Dawid Malan takes a step down the track and tries to flick but gets an inside edge onto the pads. It lobs up and Marnus Labuschagne reacts quickly from silly point to catch the ball. They all appeal and the finger has gone up. Something similar happened on the second ball of this over as well but then Dawid escaped. Not this time. Early exit for him this morning and it's a perfect start for Australia. 326 days between 399 and 400 wickets. That was a long wait. Lyon takes the ball and shows it to the audience to celebrate his milestone. Take a bow, GOAT!

Heart in mouth for England fans! Good-length ball, around off. Joe Root covers his line and has a feel for it. The ball whizzes past the outside edge and carries through to the keeper. Australia put up an appeal for caught behind but nothing from the umpire. Root at the end does well to survive the last ball. England trail by 58 runs. This has been a great turnaround for them.

Alex Carey catches it and appeals for it but nothing from the umpire. Australian players seem confident and Pat Cummins opts for the review. HotSpot shows no bat as the ball passes the toe end of the bat. The on-field decision stays. Australia lose their review.
