Cardiff, Wales:  England started and finished day two of the Ashes series opener admirably on Thursday, with Australia still trying to find an edge at sun-bathed Sophia Gardens.

In the morning, the last three England wickets netted an invaluable 87 runs to lift the total to 430 all out. England then dug out Australia's top order in less than two sessions on the passive pitch, and slowed down the visitors to 264-5 at stumps, trailing by 166 runs.

It was still anybody's test.

At the crease were Shane Watson on 29, and nightwatchman Nathan Lyon on 6.
