84.2 Mitchell Starc to Jonny Bairstow

OUT! Bowled. Mitchell Starc to Jonny Bairstow. Back of a length, middle stump on the back foot defending, inside edge. Bairstow is late on the shot, beaten for pace, and drags it onto middle stump which goes for a walk. That's a comprehensive way for the hosts to complete a resounding victory, they take a 2-0 lead heading to the WACA. What a Test match, once again Adelaide has served up a thrilling day/night contest. England retained hopes of a remarkable victory first thing today, but they were quickly dashed by a fired up Josh Hazlewood. He took two wickets in his first two overs, including the big one of Joe Root, as Australia romped home by 120 runs. Shaun Marsh's resolute first innings century feels like a long time ago now, but it set things up beautifully for the hosts and allowed their bowlers to take over. The tourists fought back through James Anderson and Joe Root, but Mitchell Starc's 88-5 polished things off nicely. Attention will turn to the Third Test in Perth next week, with England having it all to do.


84.1 Mitchell Starc to Jonny Bairstow

FOUR! Mitchell Starc to Jonny Bairstow. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past deep cover for 4 runs. Spanked with authority, that's an incredible drive by Bairstow. He hasn't given up hope just yet.
