England vs Australia, 3rd Ashes Test, Day 2 Highlights:
Stumps for Day 2
Even after a late show by Ben Stokes, Australia end the day comfortably boasting a lead of 283 runs. Marnus Labuschagne finishes the day with 53*, while James Pattinson will return tomorrow being on 2*. AUS are 171/6 after 57 overs.
Two wickets in four balls for England! Stuart Broad dismisses Tim Paine, as his nick off the bat is caught by Joe Denly. Australia crumbling again? AUS are 164/6 after 53.3 overs.
After hitting a four, Matthew Wade is now dismissed and much to Ben Stokes' delight as the allrounder sits down on the ground in peace. Wade walks away after being caught behind, having scored 33 from 59 balls. Australia lead by 275 runs. AUS are 163/5 after 53 overs.
Australia lead by 265
With two boundaries in two overs, Australia are looking to finish the day on a high with Labuschagne personally looking ahead to his third consecutive Ashes half-century ever since his introduction as a concussion substitute in London. AUS are 153/4 after 49 overs.
Archer back into attack, injures himself
After drinks, Jofra Archer, who had bowled 8 overs in his opening spell, is back into attack, bowling against Labuschagne, but oh no. he has seemingly pulled his right hamstring and goes off the field for medical assistance. Ben Stokes finishes the over by bowling two balls. Labuschagne's on 32* after 98 balls, while, Matthew Wade is on 22* from just 28 balls. They have a lead of 247 runs. AUS are 135/4 after 43 overs.
Australia hitting well
After a Matthew Wade appeal is overturned, Australia get a second a life. Scoring just five runs from the last four overs, Australia get the scoreboard ticking as Wade comes back to punish Leach with two consecutive boundaries. Ten runs from the over. Australia have a lead of 236 runs. AUS are 124/4 after 40 overs.
Wade hits a boundary
After a misfield by Joe Denly, Matthew Wade opens his account with a boundary against Leach. Labuschagne standing like a brick wall on the other side, hoping to form a partnership to take the lead way past 300. AUS are 104/4 after 34 overs.
BOWLED HIM! Ben Stokes gets his man, and it's Travis Head, who departs on 25. Matthew Wade is getting ready in the dressing room. AUS are 97/4 after 32.2 overs.
Australia take a lead of 200
Still standing their ground, Labuschagne and Head are slowly turning the tide of the game. After a single off Ben Stokes' delivery, the Aussies take a lead of 200 runs. AUS are 88/3 after 28.2 overs.
Jack Leach restarts the proceedings, and Head plays it with a cool head. Three runs from the over. AUS are 85/3 after 26 overs.
And it's tea break!
Marnus Labuschagne and Travis Head steadied the ship towards the end, with the former scoring 13* and the latter putting 17* on the scoreboard. Leach, Woakes and Archer have one wicket each, but they would look for ways to bundle Australia soon enough as they already have a lead of 194 runs. AUS are 82/3 after 25 overs. Time for some tea now, folks!
Australia taking it slow
Still stuck in single digits, both Labuschagne and head are taking it slow in order to build the lead for Australia. Archer, Broad and Woakes are all trying to break the potential partnership, but have been on the frustrating end so far. Labuschagne's on 6*, while Head's on 5*. AUS are 61/3 after 20 overs.
CAUGHT! Usman Khawaja walks for 23 as Chris Woakes bags England's third wicket of the day. Pressure on Marnus Labuschagne and Travis Head now. AUS are 52/3 after 14.1 overs.
What a ball! Jack Leach dismisses Marcus Harris for 19, after bowling him out. The first wicket for a spinner in the third Test. AUS are 36/2 after 11.1 overs.
Harris, Khawaja look steady
Usman Khawaja is settled and adding up runs alongwith Marcus Harris, as he smacks Stuart Broad for a boundary. Australia keep the runs coming. Five runs from the over. AUS are 22/1 after 6 overs.
Stuart Broad strikes early with a LBW and makes David Warner walk for a duck. Australia going to get a taste of their own medicine? AUS are 10/1 after 1.2 overs.
Australia begin second innings
Marcus Harris and David Warner are back out again, with Jofra Archer opening the second innings coming around the wicket.
Bowled around the legs, Josh Hazlewood gets the wicket of Jack Leach to complete his five-wicket haul. A brilliant bowling effort from the Australians. The visitors lead by 112 runs. ENG - 67 all out in 27.5 overs
Jofra Archer's little fightback comes to an end. Pat Cummins' bouncer gets the better of him. Archer tried to duck but could not keep his bat down. A faint edge off his bat. He reviews but the replay show that it took an edge of the bat. ENG - 66/9 in 26.4 overs
And another one goes down. Too easy for Josh Hazlewood. Buttler caught on the drive. Fourth wicket for the English opening bowler. An easy catch for Usman Khawaja. England batting lineup in shambles. Over to Stuart Broad and Jofra Archer now. ENG - 56/8 in 25.1 overs
Australia get off to a perfect start after the lunch break. A short ball from Pat Cummins and Chris Woakes tries to tuck it towards the leg side. Another wicket for Australia. England are in deep, deep trouble! ENG - 54/7 in 24.1 overs
An extraordinary bowling performance from Australian bowlers to turn the game on his head. At the start of day 2, England had their noses in front having bundled out Australia for 179 in the first innings. But, Australian fast bowlers rattled the English batsmen, forcing them to make a mistake with good old fashioned fast bowling. Currently, Jos Buttler and Chris Woakes are batting. Will we see a fightback from the English lower order? Stay tuned to find out! ENG - 54/6 in 24 overs
Finally, 50 up for England in the first innings. Two boundaries from the bat give the crowd something to cheer for their home team. First, it was a freebie to Chris Woakes. In the next over, Jos Buttler drives it to the boundary. He hits it from the middle of his bat. Something, we have rarely seen today. Both the batsmen have gotten off the mark with a boundary. Can they help England recover from the batting collapse? ENG - 53/6 in 23 overs
This is a collapse of gigantic proportions. Jonny Bairstow pokes at the delivery going away from him. Josh Hazlewood continues to haunt English batsmen. Hazlewood takes his third wicket of the day. Meanwhile, David Warner takes his fourth catch of the day in slip cordon. A record on cards for him today? ENG - 45/6 in 21.1 overs
Denly's luck runs out
England are in deep trouble. It has been a nightmarish first session for them. Joe Denly goes for a drive away from his body and pays the price for it. Tim Paine takes an easy catch. England fans are stunned. The hosts are five down now. James Pattinson gets his second wicket of the day. ENG - 45/5 in 20.1 overs
This has been a pathetic effort ... No hiding behind any excuses ... simply not good enough ... #Ashes— Michael Vaughan (@MichaelVaughan) August 23, 2019
Denly soaks up the pressure
Joe Denly is trying to play out the new ball. He is getting support from Jonny Bairstow who is yet to get off the mark. With some luck, Denly is surviving out there trying to survive the new ball spell from the Australian bowlers. He is in the double figures. ENG - 40/4 in 19 overs
James Pattinson introduced into the attack and he gets the wicket of Ben Stokes in the first over. Stokes edges it to the slip cordon and David Warner takes it easily. That's Warner's third catch of the day. England are in huge trouble having lost four wickets in the first session already. ENG - 34/4 in 14.3 overs
Denly off the mark
Finally, Joe Denly gets off the mark. A beautiful drive to get a boundary. He gets off the mark of the 24th delivery he faced. But, Josh Hazlewood would not mind that, he wants Denly to come forward and drive. ENG - 24/3 in 12 overs
Cummins sets up Rory
Pat Cummins gets the reward for his hard work with the new ball. Once again, Cummins gets the better of Rory Burns with a short ball. Burns tries to play a pull shot but it carries to Tim Paine after brushing off his glove. England are in trouble in the first session. ENG - 20/3 in 10.4 overs
Lyon into the attack
For the first time in the Test, spin has been introduced. Interestingly, Tim Paine has introduced spin when the ball is doing its bit for the fast bowlers. The ball is seaming and bouncing but Paine decided to give the ball to Lyon. Three runs from his first over. ENG - 20/2 in 10 overs
DRS saves Denly
That one swung back in sharply to beat Joe Denly's bat and hit him on the pads. Josh Hazlewood appeals and everyone joins him, the umpire waits and raises his finger as well. Denly reviews it. There was no bat involved but the ball bounced too much and missed the stumps in hawkeye vision. Understandable, the pitch has bounce and Hazlewood is a tall fast bowler. Good review from Denly. ENG - 10/2 in 6 overs
Root goes for duck!
That was a peach of a delivery! Josh Hazlewood is turning it on here. Joe Root gets squared up in the crease and edges it to Warner. Hazlewood on fire with the new ball, two wickets in the third over for him already. ENG - 10/2 in 5.1 overs
Jason Roy's disappointing run in the Ashes continues. Roy gets beaten by the swing and edges it to first slip fielder David Warner. An easy catch in the slip cordon, Josh Hazlewood strikes early. The England opener departs for 9. ENG - 10/1 in 3.5 overs
Jason Roy gets off the mark with a boundary. A fuller length from Pat Cummins, Roy comes forward and the outside edge goes for a boundary. ENG - 6/0 in 1 over
Hello and welcome to England vs Australia 2nd Test, Day 2 live blog. England are currently dominating the third Test, thanks to Jofra Archer's heroics on a rain-affected day one. The Australians would like to return the favour with the new ball as they take the field on day two.
