England are in real trouble losing four wickets for the score of just 30 runs on the board. Coming out to bat for 29 overs, England suffered first blow when Adam Lyth poked at one outside off just on the second ball of the innings and was caught in the slips. Gary Ballance flirted with danger for time and was bowled by a full one from Mitchell Johnson. Ian Bell came in and was seen through by Josh Hazlewood. Joe Root was the fourth one to depart when he edged one of the bowling of Johnson. England have skipper Alastair Cook and Ben Stokes battling it out for them.
