England suffer Ashes meltdown as hosts out for just 67 to set lowest EVER Test score at Headingley

England were humiliated by Australia in the third Ashes Test at Headingly after collapsing to just 6775 all out in the first innings – their lowest-ever Test score at Headingley.

This total was also the eighth-lowest recorded in innings against Australia, and their fourth-lowest ever in England.

More worryingly, it is also the fourth time this year that England have failed to make at least 100 – and fans made their feelings very clear on social media.

Joe Denly was top scorer with just 12 runs – the only player to reach double figures – while captain Joe Root was out for a second successive duck as England conceded a 112-run first-innings lead.

Having struggled throughout the series, Jason Roy failed yet again with a score of just nine, also matched by fellow opener Rory Burns.

A brutal morning session also saw Ben Stokes and Jonny Bairstow fall for eight and four respectively before lunch.

One fan hit out at the display, claiming: ‘In the history of English team sport never have we been represented by 11 Invertebrates until now. Spineless and pathetic.’

Another believes the Ashes series is now out of reach, with Egland having lost the first Test at Edgbaston and drawn at Lord’s, saying ‘Ashes Gone.’ 

Remarkably, in the devastation, England’s batsmen did achieve a remarkable feat. Eight of their batsmen hit exactly one four each, the only time that has happened in Test cricket.
