Watch: Twin caught-and-bowleds demonstrate Australian dominance

by Wisden Staff 2 minute read

Two impressive caught and bowled dismissals in the space of 20 minutes had Australia purring as England collapsed on the third day in Adelaide.

The tourists were partly the architects of their own downfall in sliding towards a huge first-innings deficit in the second Test, but excellent catches off their own bowling from Nathan Lyon and then Mitchell Starc rubbed salt in English wounds.

Moeen Ali played a poor shot to Nathan Lyon, who leapt to his left to take an eye-catching one-handed catch as England’s off-spinner fell for 25.

But Starc soon got in the act too, as Bairstow played a loose and uppish drive and he stuck out a hand to leave England 142-7.
