The second test match between Australia and England is taking place at Adelaide, which is a pink ball test of the Ashes 2021-22. Australia are without their captain Pat Cummins. Having batted first under the captaincy of Steven Smith, Australia have made a mammoth total of 473-9 declared with the help of Labuschagne (103 runs), Warner (95 runs) and Captain Smith (93 runs). For England, their bowlers looked a bit rusty in the first inning, and Ben Stokes registered a figure of 3/113.
England’s batting struggled once more, managing only 236/10, with Malan leading the way with 80 runs. Australia looked set to crush England once more in the second test, with a 237-run lead in the first innings. Starc was superb with the ball for Australia, grabbing four wickets, while Nathan Lyon took three. On the other hand, former England batsman Kevin Pietersen, who appeared dissatisfied with the team’s batting performance, attempted to criticise Nathan Lyon. On his Twitter account, Kevin Pietersen said,”Can SOMEONE please smack Lyon?!?!! Off spinner with zero variations and bowling on world crickets flattest road!!!! #Ashes”
