The Ashes: Archer Claims 6 as Australia Fold for 179


Day - 1

Australia 179 (Labuschagne 74, Warner 61, Archer 6-45) v England

It was a case of another day, another intriguing chapter in this Ashes contest as David Warner found some form and Marnus Labuschagne - only in the side because Steven Smith was still suffering the effects of being concussed by Archer - top-scored for Australia for the second time in as many innings. But Archer, playing just his second Test, had the last word, his 6 for 45 putting England on top.

Despite rain and bad light forcing a delayed start and long, frustrating stretches without any play at all, there were enough twists and turns amid the action to ensure it was in keeping with the rest of the series so far.
