Australia were made to follow on for the first time in 17 years...
The Australian supremacy in Test cricket was shattered today.
A shell-shocked Australia negotiated the 20 minutes of play before lunch intact - physically, if not necessarily mentally. But after a morning of ooh-and-aah-inducing magic, England hold all the aces.
This has been a wretched summer for Australian cricket.
- The men's team lost to Bangladesh (the greatest upset in history).
- The English women's team regains the Ashes after 42 years!
- The men's team follows on after 17 years.
- The men's team loses the Ashes?
