WATCH: A comedy of errors rock second day at Ashes featuring David Warner and Haseeb Hameed

Australia has been thoroughly dominating England in the first Test of the Ashes as the visitors have been outplayed

Australia has been thoroughly dominating England in the first Test of the Ashes as the visitors have been outplayed, outclassed and outgunned in every single department. Batting first, England was bundled out for a paltry 147, courtesy of Pat Cummins leading the charge with a stellar fifer.

Australia was off to a rude awakening after Marcus Harris was removed way before than anticipated, with Ollie Robinson drawing first blood.

A glimpse at the drama between David Warner and Haseeb Hameed in the first Ashes Test

Warner and Marnus Labuschagne started with the overhaul and did so successfully. However, Warner had a couple of lives before he stitched together the fine 94. Once he was bowled for just 17 runs by Ben Stokes, but it was found out that the latter has overstepped his line.

There was another reprieve that Warner has managed to secure and that was basically a comedy of errors not just from Warner but from English opener Haseeb Hameed too.

While trying to dance down the pitch, he failed to connect and the ricocheting ball dropped off to Haseeb Hameed at short leg. Hameed miffed his effort and at the same Time Warner slipped and fell down.

Hameed recovered the ball and prepared for the throw with all the three stumps gaping at him. Warner turned on his chest and tried to hurl the bat into the pitch. However, the bat slipped off his hands too and toppled on its back, thereby making it to be a definite dismissal if the ball kissed timbre.

Hameed attempted the throw, Warner gave up, the ball flew towards the stumps and just when everyone thought that it was the final knell for Warner in the first innings, to everyone’s surprise, the ball flew past the stumps and even Warner couldn’t believe it.

To make it even more hilarious, Warner just crawled back into the crease as he thrusted his gloves into the popping crease. Just when you thought that the Ashes will be ruled by the dank clouds in the sky, this sequence of events brought out a hilarious side of cricket.
