Jofra Archer's six-wicket haul put England in command on a rain-affected first day of the third Ashes Test at Headingley, as they bowled Australia out for 179.

He whipped up a frenzy of excitement claiming six for 45, five of which came in the final session.

"I’m over the moon to get six wickets. I guess these are the things you train for. If you train hard in the game you should be rewarded eventually. [And] I don’t need to run in and bowl 90mph every spell to get wickets. It’s shown that today," he said.

Australia lead the five-match series 1-0.
