• Bowler took five for 30 during England’s 67 all out horror show• ‘If we start well again, they might think here we go again’
Josh Hazlewood fancies England will take time to recover from the scars of their 67 all out Headingley horror show as Australia now look to finish them off and retain the Ashes with two Tests to spare. Hazlewood was part of the touring side that was bowled out for 60 on the first morning at Trent Bridge four years ago but can now look back on figures of five for 30 that helped roll England for their lowest Ashes total since being 52 all out in Don Bradman’s last Test at the Oval in 1948.
And so while Graham Thorpe, England’s batting coach, was trying to remain upbeat in the aftermath of his side’s devastating morning, claiming a target of 330 may still be achievable, Hazlewood believes the psychological damage is already done.
