Australia was standing at a comfortable position of 189/2 in response to England’s 147 all-out as they approached Tea on Day 2 at The Gabba. However, Mark Wood had got the prized wicket of Steve Smith, who nicked one behind to Jos Buttler for 12 to give England an opening.

Ollie Robinson, who’d had earlier dismissed Marcus Harris (3) earlier in the day, then stepped up right at the start of the third session, dismissing David Warner and Cameron Green of successive balls. Warner, who was bowled off a Ben-Stokes no-ball earlier in the day, spooned a slower-one to the all-rounder at mid-off, before Chris Green shouldered arms to one coming in, that hit the top of middle and off. Chris Woakes removed debutant Alex Carey nine overs later as England’s fightback continued.

Australia was 236/6 at the time of writing, with Travis Head joined by skipper Pat Cummins. Here are the videos of the dismissals:
