Australia hosted England in the second Test of the Ashes series in a pick-ball game in Adeliade and registered a huge win by 275 runs. While England’s defeat was inevitable, they didn’t go down without fighting. The likes of Ben Stokes, Jos Buttler, and Chris Woakes, who are known for playing an attacking brand of cricket, played opposite of their character and tried to pull off a draw. However, the Aussie bowlers were too hot to handle, especially Jhye Richardson, who scalped his maiden five-wicket haul in Test matches.

The hosts put a brilliant performance in the match as after winning the toss, the Aussies elected to bat first and nothing went wrong for them since then as they put up a daunting total of 473 runs in their first innings owing to the half-centuries, from David Warner (95), Steve Smith (93), and Alex Carey (51). Marnus Labuschagne smashed a century as well.

But England failed to do well in the game so far as their batter didn’t have answers from the Australian bowlers barring Joe R0ot (62) and Dawid Malan (80) as they were bundled out for 236 runs, but the hosts didn’t ask the visitors to follow on. In the second innings, Australia managed to take a humongous lead of 467 runs owing to the half0centuries from Labsuchagne (51) and Travis Head (51).

In their second innings, Australia declared their innings at 230/9. After coming out to bat in the second innings, the English batting line-up crumbled again as the down to 82/4 before the end of the day’s play on Day 4. On Day 5, just when the game looked spiced, Jos Buttler was dismissed in arguably the most unfortunate manner.

Buttler went on the backfoot to tackle Richardson’s short delivery and suffered a hit-wicket dismissal. He was subsequently dismissed and the Aussies didn’t have to work hard for the last wicket either. As a result, Aussies won their ninth successive Pink-Ball Test and gained a 2-0 lead in the five-match series.
