London:  Australia bowled England out for 312 in the second Ashes test on Saturday, declining to enforce the follow-on and batting again despite a first innings lead of 254.

England resumed Saturday at 85-4 and could not get close to Australia's imposing first innings total of 566-8 declared. Captain Alastair Cook scored 96 and Ben Stokes 87, but most England batsmen wilted in the face of a hostile Australian bowling attack.

Mitchell Johnson was the pick of the Australian bowlers with a display of controlled aggression, finishing with 3-53 from 20.1 overs. Josh Hazlewood had figures of 3-68.

Aiming to level the five-match series at 1-1, Australia will look to score quickly and set England a near impossible target.
