Australia were bundled out for 138 in the second innings courtesy James Anderson s maiden five-wicket haul Down Under. In the process he became the first Englishman to 800 wickets across formats.

Australia lost 6 wickets in the session. After rattling Nathan Lyon with top-class pace bowling, Anderson had him caught at mid-off. He soon induced an edge off Peter Handscomb, making him his 800th victim. Anderson, however, was not the only wrecker. Chris Woakes went neck and neck and finished with his second four-wicket haul. Though Stuart Broad went wicketless, debutant Craig Overton stretched his tally to 5 wickets in the match.

None of the Australian batsmen could score over 20. The highest partnership of the innings read 34, between David Warner and Usman Khawaja. This is evidence to the fact that the English pacers bowled well in tandem, never letting Australia off the hook.

Anderson also completed 50 wickets in Australia. Adding more to his achievements, he now has 47 wickets in 2017, the most by a pacer. Morne Morkel, with 34, is second pacer with most scalps in the list.

Brief scores:

Australia 442 for 8 (Usman Khawaja 53, Shaun Marsh 103*, Tim Paine 57; Stuart Broad 2 for 57, Craig Overton 2 for 89) and 138 (Usman Khawaja 20; James Anderson 5 for 43, Chris Woakes 4 for 36) lead England 227 (Craig Overton 41, Nathan Lyon 4 for 60) by 353 runs.
