Australia vs England, 2nd Test (D/N), The Ashes
Australia 473/9d (150.4 ov)
England *17/2 (8.4 ov)
Day Break: Day 2 England trail by 456 runs.
After a successful first day for Australia, David Warner and Marnus Labuschagne seeing them to a good score, their form continued into the second. Steven Smith (93) and a Alex Carey half century getting them to 473/9 before declaring. Ben Stokes (3/118) and James Anderson (2/58) among the wicket takers to push Australia to an end.
Things just got worse for England, as Rory Burns was gone in the 2nd over. And worse, Haseeb Hameed joining Rory not much later, England heading in at day break 17/2 thanks to being saved by the weather.
Unfortunately that's the end of the day's play.— cricket.com.au (@cricketcomau) December 17, 2021
