The Ashes: Day 2- Dinner Break Review

Australians are set to take 8 more wickets after the Dinner Break.

With the pink ball Test completing its fourth session of the game, England’s on strike with captain Root guarding the honours of his team.

Australia got bowled out for a total of 303 runs, which seemed to be unexpected. Australia’s early wickets dismissed the top three batsmen of the team on Day 1 but Marnus and Travis managed to have a good partnership, with both of them contributing decent scores. Green too helped Australia to reach 300 points. The middle-order was stunningly advantageous for the hosts.

Earlier on Day 2, Australia got bowled out, with Alex and the tail-enders not batting much. Broad and Mark Wood took 3 wickets while Robinson and Woakes took 2 each, getting Australians out for a total of 303.

England’s new combination coming in to bat, unexpectedly fail to stand still, as Rory got run out by Marnus’s direct hit at the striker’s end. The hesitation in taking the single made him get out cheaply for a duck. Following the opening batsman Rory, Zak Crawley nicked an inside edge, towards the thigh pads and into the hands of Travis Head, got out on Pat Cummins’s delivery.

Captain Pat looks on positive momentum, having bowled a decent 6 overs start has not been such an impact for now, as the captain brought in Scott Boland to allow him to come in the heat, as Australians are set to take 8 more wickets after the Dinner Break.

With England at 34-2, both the captains are ready for a heated face-off. While Pat is in momentum with a breakthrough, captain Root seems to be easy on the ball, playing on a defensive mode. The last Test is as exciting as all the games in this series, with two dominating teams playing against each other. Australians are witnessed to have the game in their favour, with England hoping for some table-turning moment.
