'Isn't a Test batsman': England man slammed over 'poor' moment

Jason Roy has felt the cruel brunt of fans' anger after another failure with the bat in the third Ashes Test.

The England opener came to the crease under immense pressure after failing to make a solid score in his four previous innings this series.

Roy went for a first innings duck at Lord's and only made two runs in the second Test.

However, any hopes that he could bat his way into form were quickly extinguished by Aussie quick Josh Hazlewood.

Roy's lack of judgement was punished as the ball caught his outside edge and was caught by David Warner at first slip for nine runs.

The opener received no sympathy from fans on social media, many of whom suggested his time at the top of England's batting order was up.

Hazelwood and Warner combined again moments later to remove England captain Joe Root for a duck.

Root got a thick outside edge that flew to Warner in the slips, with the Aussie launching himself to the left to snare an excellent catch.

Pat Cummins then made it three wickets in the first session for Australia when he removed Rory Burns for nine.

England's other opener was tempted into taking on a Cummins short ball but could only glove his attempted hook shot to Aussie wicketkeeper Tim Paine.

The Aussies were desperate to begin the second day with early wickets after a collapse on day one saw them bundled out for 179.

Pace bowler Jofra Archer led the way for England on the opening day, bagging six wickets in just the second Test match of his career.

Archer created chaos as Australia lost 8-43 to be rolled on a rain-affected opening day.

Aussie opener Warner and Marnus Labuschagne passed 50 but their teammates had no answers as Archer grabbed 6-45, celebrating his maiden five-wicket haul for England.

Archer backed up his remarkable Test debut in style, even timing the dismissal of Nathan Lyon to perfection so that stumps were pulled and England's openers didn't have any awkward overs to face on Thursday.

A watchful Warner overcame a tortured start to score 61, having been invited to bat first under overcast skies but also immense pressure sparked by early-series struggles and the absence of Steve Smith.

Labuschagne, who proved his match-saving 59 in the Lord's draw as a concussion substitute for Smith was no flash in the pan, weathered an eye-watering blow to the box before falling on 74 to a full toss from Ben Stokes.

Warner and Labuschagne shared a 111-run stand, frustrating Joe Root with the help of some sloppy fielding plus delays prompted by bad light and light rain at Headingley.

But, as is so often the case in England, one wicket quickly brought more in a collapse of 3-3 that spanned 15 balls.

Tim Paine, the only other batsman to reach double figures outside Warner and Labuschagne, steadied temporarily but Archer returned to the attack to fire out three tailenders in a collapse of 5-17 that ended the day and innings.

Archer first swung momentum with a pinpoint delivery that Warner, who helped Australia recover from 2-25, edged to keeper Jonny Bairstow.

Travis Head and Matthew Wade were bowled for ducks in consecutive overs, with the latter out when an Archer delivery struck the thigh pad then rolled onto the stumps.
