Ashes 2021 Highlights, Australia vs England, 2nd Test Day 5: Australia beat England by 275 runs, take 2-0 lead

AUS 473/9 Dec & 230/9 Dec; ENG 236 & 192 - Result: Australia won by 275 runs

England 142/6 in 74 overs in 2nd innings (Dinner break) Australia needed only four more England wickets with two sessions remaining in the second Ashes test on the final day Monday, a win that would give the home side a 2-0 series lead. Set 486 runs to win at the Adelaide Oval, England was 142-6 after the opening session. The visitors resumed on 82-4 but it took just 15 balls for the first crack to appear when Mitchell Starc removed Ollie Pope (4), who edged to Steve Smith at second slip. Starc (2-33) should have claimed another wicket in his next over but a blunder from wicketkeeper Alex Carey allowed Jos Buttler to narrowly avoid making a pair of ducks in the match.

Earlier on Day 4: England 82/4 in 43.4 overs in 2nd innings  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.
