Ashes 2nd Test Day 4, AUS vs ENG Highlights: England 82/4 at stumps; Root falls on last ball of the day

England 82/4 in 43.4 overs in 2nd innings (Stumps)  Australia have set England a record target of 468 runs to win the second Ashes test in Adelaide after declaring its second innings at 9-230 during the middle session on day four. First-innings centurion Marnus Labuschagne and Travis Head top-scored, making 51 apiece, with Cameron Green adding an unbeaten 33 as Australia sought quick runs in the evening session. England will need to create history to win with the highest successful fourth-innings test run chase being the West Indies’ 7-418 against Australia in 2003. The highest successful fourth-innings chase in Adelaide is Australia’s 6-315 to beat England in 1901/02.

Australia 134/4 in 44 overs in 2nd innings (Dinner Break) England's bowlers took three early wickets on day four to stall Australia's push for victory in the second Ashes Test, despite an injury in the warm-up for captain Joe Root which prevented the English captain from taking the field for the start of play. Resuming Sunday at 1-45 in its second innings, Australia lost opener Marcus Harris, Steve Smith and nightwatchman Michael Neser early, before a rally by first innings centurion Marnus Labuschagne and Travis Head guided Australia to 134-4 at the break, with a lead of 371 runs.

At dinner, Labuschagne was 31 not out with Head on 45 from 44 balls. Australia will likely look to push its lead past 400 runs before declaring sometime in the middle session to maximize the use of the evening conditions to attack England's top order under lights.
