England have not had much to sing and dance about during the Ashes series but the Barmy Army were in full voice as Australia shelled two easy catches in Sydney.

Steve Smith’s side were hoping to inspire another batting collapse on day two of the final Ashes match but only had themselves to blame after wasting a number of chances.

The first fell to fast bowler Pat Cummins, who dived forward after Tom Curran mistimed a drive off Nathan Lyon but failed to take a regulation catch.

Just four balls later, Cummins was the disappointed bowler as Moeen Ali top edged a pull shot straight to Josh Hazlewood at mid-wicket, only for Hazlewood to put it down.

Josh Hazlewood shells easy chance:

? Oops ?

“That was great”

A moment to forget for Josh Hazlewood and @GeoffreyBoycott loves it…#ItsTheAshes#Ashespic.twitter.com/XKlP9mGQ3o

‘Another one shelled,’ Geoffrey Boycott said, commentating on BT Sport. ‘You can’t legislate for these as a captain or a team.

‘That was great, weren’t it! To see the Aussies have a bad catching day, that’s pretty good.’
