The players are returning to the pavilion because of the threat of a lightning strike at the Adelaide Oval.

Australia 385/6 in 139 overs in 1st innings WICKET! Anderson finally provides the breakthrough as Smith misses out on a well-deserved century by seven runs. The ball kept low and Smith finds himself right in front of the wicket. The Australian captain still goes for a review but it's the umpires call. 

Australia 376/5 in 136 overs in 1st innings Some merry-go-fun overs for the hosts as they are nearly guiding the ball to the boundaries. This is adding frustration to the England bowlers who are desperate to this partnership. 20 runs collected from the last five overs.

Australia 356/5 in 131 overs in 1st innings The five over spell allowed Australian batsmen to smash the big hits and gather some runs on the board. 25 runs from Australian batsmen added woes to England bowlers who are already searching for a wicket.

Australia 251/3 in 102 overs in 1st innings Skipper Steve Smith and Brisbane Test hero- Travis Head are driving Australia after Labuschagne's wicket. The duo is carefully facing the English bowlers and hardly gicing any chances of error. 10 runs accumulated from the last five overs. 

Australia 241/3 in 97 overs in 1st innings WICKET! Robinson gets the first blood on Day 2 as he removes centurion Labuschagne in an lbw. A fuller delivery, the ball angled in and struck onto the pads as Labuschagne shouldered arms. DRS from Australia but didn't save the batter this time. 65-run stand between him and Smith comes to an end.

Australia 238/2 in 95.1 overs in 1st innings There is a little drama happening in Adelaide. Or maybe Labuschagne has got his best stroke of luck in this ongoing match as his dismissal ball turns out to be a no-ball. Robinson, who bowled a peach of delivery that went away from Labuschagne's body tempts him to play and gets a nick. The ball was pocketed well by the keeper Jos Buttler but Robinson's overstepping forced the umpire to reverse the decision. The Australian batter has got more than five chances now. 

Australia 236/2 in 93.3 overs in 1st innings 100 for Marnus Labuschagne. The Australian batsman patiently meandered through 287 balls to get his first century against England. Though he was blessed with four chances in his accomplishment of scoring the century. Labuschagne reached his century in style as he played a soft-handed shot that sailed for a four between  the slips and gully.

Australia 225/2 in 90 overs in 1st innings A  total of four runs gathered from the opening over on Day 2. Pitch is offering good bounce and the ball is carrying nicely to the keeper. 

A look at Adelaide's turf ahead of Day's 2 game. 

Ashes 2nd Test: Dominant Australia reach 221-2 on Day 1; Labuschagne 95 not out

Australia shrugged off the late withdrawal of new skipper Pat Cummins because of coronavirus concerns to dominate England on the opening day of the second Ashes test and reach 221-2 at stumps.

Marnus Labuschagne was dropped twice but remained unbeaten on 95 at stumps Thursday after sharing partnerships of 172 with David Warner (95) and 45 with Steve Smith.

Smith returned to the Australian captaincy for the first time since the 2018 sandpaper scandal after Cummins was ruled out. He was deemed to be a close contact of a positive COVID-19 case when he dined at a restaurant on the eve of the match. Smith won the toss and just about everything else went Australia's way to start the day-night test.

He was unbeaten on 18 after waiting most of the day to bat, with Australia losing just two wickets despite an England attack bolstered by the return of Jimmy Anderson and Stuart Broad.

Wicketkeeper Jos Buttler took a brilliant catch in the first hour to dismiss opener Marcus Harris (3) but then dropped Labuschagne twice — once down legside when he was on 21 and the other when he fumbled a regulation chance off Anderson's bowling with the second new ball when the Australian No. 3 was on 95.

England (Playing XI): Rory Burns, Haseeb Hameed, Dawid Malan, Joe Root(c), Ben Stokes, Ollie Pope, Jos Buttler(w), Chris Woakes, Ollie Robinson, Stuart Broad, James Anderson

Australia (Playing XI): David Warner, Marcus Harris, Marnus Labuschagne, Steven Smith(c), Travis Head, Cameron Green, Alex Carey(w), Michael Neser, Mitchell Starc, Jhye Richardson, Nathan Lyon
