The records England broke in their astonishing 67 all out

The 2019 Ashes
England 67 all out Ashes Australia Headingley PA

England managed to turn a very good position at Headingley into a very, very bad one very, very quickly as they collapsed to 67 all out on day two of the third Ashes Test. It broke plenty of records, as you can imagine. Here’s the catalogue of horror.

  • England’s lowest ever Test score at Headingley – previously 75 all out against South Africa in 1907.
  • Joint-second lowest Test score at Headingley behind only West Indies’ 61 all out in 2000.
  • England’s lowest Ashes total since 1948.
  • England’s 12th lowest Test total of all time.
  • England’s third sub-100 total in seven Tests this year, following their 85 against Ireland at Lord’s and 77 against West Indies in Barbados. They also got rolled for 58 by New Zealand in 2018.
  • Joe Denly’s 12 is the lowest ever top-score for England in a full, completed Test innings, beating the previous record of 15 by both Willie Quaife and Gilbert Jessop at Sydney in 1902 and Nasser Hussain against South Africa at Lord’s in 1998.
  • Denly has now been involved in two sub-100 totals in his 11 innings as a Test batsman, but has top-scored in both of them after making 23 in the 85 against Ireland.
  • Joe Root recorded ducks in successive innings for the first time in his Test career.
