Australia dismantles England to win second Ashes Test with 120-run victory

Share

Australia beat England by 120 runs in the second Ashes test at Adelaide Oval on Wednesday to take a 2-0 lead in the series with three matches remaining.

England arrived at Adelaide Oval on the fifth day knowing that hope springs eternal, or at least until Joe Root gets out. "You want to stamp your authority on the game and to get the early wickets was good, particularly the captain Joe Root", Hazlewood told Grandstand after play.

Their offensive stalled, however, after night watchman Chris Woakes was dismissed by Josh Hazlewood on the second ball of the day.

Nathan Lyon got the wicket of fellow off-spinner Moeen Ali for the fourth time in the series, leg before wicket as he attempted to sweep when on two.

Mitchell Starc finished with figures of 5 for 88 in England's second innings.

"I think we're still reasonably confident, obviously the last two days haven't gone to plan but I think we're still in front of the game", said Australia bowling coach David Saker.

Some portion of the fans felt the visitors had a chance of levelling the series, whilst others could only see the hosts extending their lead to 2-0.

England and Australia both head to Perth for the third Test match, and if Australia win, which they are favourites to do, the Ashes will already be all over for Root, and the word whitewash will be resurfacing.

Root didn't add to his overnight score and when he departed, so did any realistic hope of the English reaching their 354-run target.

Craig Overton stayed around for 39 minutes before he fell lbw to a Starc inswinger for seven with the first delivery of the second new ball.

"I didn't think it could happen that quickly", Hazlewood said. We're still massively in the series. Starc soon after had Stuart Broad caught behind for eight and then completed the job and a five-wicket haul by bowling Jonny Bairstow on 36.

"Certainly, all of our players have competed at different times during, not just this Test match but the first as well, and showed they can bat".

Australia dismissed England for 227 on Monday but decided against sending them back in to bat despite holding a 215-run first innings lead.

After a day of England fight, normal service had resumed.
