Australia set a daunting target of 359 runs of England to win the 3rd Test match and prevent them from retaining the Ashes.
However, England played brilliantly on day three and need 203 runs to win with seven wickets in hand. It was Joe Denly and Joe Root’s 126-run partnership which has put England on a dominating position in the match.
And if England manages to pull this run chase, would be the second-highest in a Test match at Headingley.
David Warner has been at the center of events which have led to Australia dominating the Leeds Test.
Warner took four catches in England’s embarrassing capitulation on day two, after playing a valuable knock of 61 runs on day one.
However, it was David Warner’s kind gesture towards his team-mate Josh Hazlewood, which caught the attention of fans across Twitter.
Warner was spotted making runs to Hazlewood almost every time he was to bowl and taking his cap from him to pass it on to the umpire.
It saved Hazlewood from walking almost 20 meters before every over which eventually helped him in restoring the energy in his bowling.
This is also a perfect example of a team spirit which is on display from the visitors who have come prepared for the Ashes this time around.
Warner is still on the nose with England fans, who continue to ‘boo’ the batsman each time he comes to and from the crease, but it doesn’t seem to bother him.
