Archer removes Warner as England strike back in fifth Test

LONDON, SEPT 13: David Warner was again dismissed for single figures as England paceman Jofra Archer made early inroads into Australia's batting line-up in the fifth Ashes Test on Friday.
The tourists had reached 55-2 by lunch, with Steve Smith unbeaten on 14 and Marcus Labuschagne not out 32.
Earlier, England added just 23 runs to their overnight score at the sun-soaked Oval in London, dismissed for 294 on a good-looking pitch.
Jos Buttler, who counter-attacked impressively on Thursday, was bowled by Pat Cummins for 70 and Jack Leach was the last man out for 21.
Mitchell Marsh's dismissal of Leach gave him figures of 5-46 on his return to the Test side while Cummins took 3-84.
Tim Paine's Australia will fancy their chances of building a substantial first-innings lead as they seek their first series win in England since 2001.
But they were dealt a big blow when Warner was out in just the second over, caught by wicketkeeper Jonny Bairstow off Archer for five.
Warner was initially given not out but England reviewed.
Slow-motion replays suggested there was a gap between bat and ball but the technology picked up a snick and the umpire overturned his initial verdict.
It was the eighth time the opener, who returned to Test cricket last month following a ball-tampering ban, had been dismissed in single figures in the five-Test series.
Archer then struck again with a 90 miles-per-hour thunderbolt to reduce Australia to 14-2 when Ben Stokes held onto a sharp chance from Warner's fellow opener Marcus Harris at second slip.    -AFP
