Aussies in charge as England collapse

LAYING DOWN THE LAW:The middle-order meltdown came after Aussie bowling coach Craig McDermott read the riot act to his players at the lunch interval

After tea, Stuart Broad and Chris Tremlett ushered England past the follow-on, before the latter was well caught by Lyon off Harris to bring out James Anderson as the last England batsman.

Broad, who took 6-81 in Australia’s first innings, fought a spirited rearguard action and was the final wicket to fall in a barrage of short bowling, caught in the deep by Chris Rogers off Peter Siddle for 32.

Haddin had been run out to end Australia’s innings, but his catches accounted for the wickets of Cook and Trott to give him 200 career dismissals in his 50th Test.
