David Warners nightmare Ashes continued as the Australia opener was dismissed for a record eighth single-digit score in the series.

Warner enjoyed a brilliant World Cup campaign, smashing three centuries to finish as the second leading run-scorer in the tournament.

The 32-year-old failed to take that form into the Ashes, however, contributing just 18 runs from his first four innings of the series.

Warner made 65 in the first innings of the third Test but was then dismissed for three successive ducks, with Stuart Broad claiming his scalp six times in eight innings.

Warner is dismissed early on yet again! 🏏

England appeal half-heartedly for caught behind after Warner misses an attempted cut; it's given 'not out' and England review successfully! 🖥

The batsman lasted just eight balls at The Oval this morning before being contentiously caught behind off Jofra Archer for eight.

In failing to reach double figures, Warner became the first player in history to be dismissed for eight single-digit scores in a Test series.

England appeared to be appealing more out of hope than belief after Warner attempted to cut Archer to the boundary but Joe Root opted to review.

The first replay appeared to show a gap between bat and ball but snicko offered a spike, which was enough to overturn the decision.

Former England captain Michael Vaughan said: There is a spike but I dont think the ball has touched the edge.
