Video - Stokes Pleased With First Test Wickets

Watch as England all-rounder Ben Stokes says he is pleased to have taken his first Test wickets on day two of the second Ashes Test at the Adelaide Oval.

Stokes thouhht he had dismissed Brad Haddin earlier in the day but a no ball denied him.

However, he hit back later on to remove Michael Clarke and Peter Siddle to finish with two for 70 as Australia declared on 570 for nine.

England then closed the day on 35 for one.

"I mean to get the first wicket, it's a pretty proud moment," he said.

"I'm happy with the way that I went about it, backing up Jimmy (Anderson) and Broady (Stuart Broad), who did a fantastic job."

He added that although he had found his introduction to Test cricket tough, the challenge came as no surprise to him.

"I wouldn't say it was a surprise. I always knew it was going to be tough. It's been a very tough two days, but you know, we've got to put that behind us now and focus on what's ahead, which is, you know, to bat long."
