Fastmen Mark wood took six for 37 as England Bundled the Australian innings for 155 just after the dinner break on the third day of the day-night fifth Ashes Test in Hobart on Sunday, giving the visitors a target of 271 to chase in the final innings of the match.

Pacer Mark Wood made the most of the seaming environment at Bellerive Oval to remove nightwatchman Scott Boland, Travis head who scored a century in the first innings Steve Smith, Usman Khawaja, Mitchell Starc, and Pat Cummins to put an end to Aussies second innings.

Former Australian skipper Steve Smith with his 27 fell when he tried to hook a bouncer from Wood but got a top edge which fell in the hands of Dawid Malan at long leg.

Stuart Broad contributed with his 3 wickets in the innings giving England hope of the possibility of a first Ashes Test win in Australia for 11 years.

England is hungry for a victory after they were thrashed in three matches and drawing one of them in the series, but they would need to play in the harsh batting conditions under the floodlights which may cause trouble to the English batsmen they will be up for the job.

Will England win their first Test match of this Ashes series? time will tell.
