Starc, Hazlewood lead Australia to second Test victory

Aussies on track for 2-0 Ashes lead

We've got to work out, individually I think, how we can do that for a lot longer.

"If I'm being honest, I was a little nervous last night", said Australia captain Steve Smith.

Starc has taken 14 wickets in Australia's back-to-back victories in the first two Tests, and believes he and his colleagues are ready to step up another gear as the series moves on to Perth.

The dismissal of Woakes had an element of fortune in that the feather the nightwatchman got on the ball was picked up by snicko but not the hotspot when it was referred.

High on confidence and bowling with more venom than ever, the off-spinner has taken 11 wickets in two tests on pitches not renowned for offering much help to the tweakers. It nearly backfired with Australia bundled out for just 138, presenting England with an unexpected winning chance to chase down a record fourth innings of 345 at Adelaide Oval.

"It's disappointing. I don't think we did ourselves justice today but I think we're still massively in this series and we showed that from the way we played yesterday".

"I hope we see a nice, fast, bouncy wicket - a WACA of old - and we can get stuck into their batters again".

After successful appeal, Bengals' George Iloka avoids suspension for Antonio Brown hit
Smith-Schuster was penalized on the play, for an illegal peel-back block and then standing over Burfict to taunt him. A suspension is the only response the league can rightfully give to what Smith-Schuster did.

England had fought back well coming in to the final day of the Test match with real hope of getting a result.

"As an allrounder in the Australian team with our attack I'm obviously not going to be bowling 30 to 40 overs a game", he said.

Australia 1st Innings: 442 decl.

.

Bayliss clearly does not think that any more practice is the key for England's batsmen and on Thursday named only Moeen Ali from the side that lost in Adelaide in an England XI to face a Cricket Australia XI in a two-day tour match in Perth. Fall of wickets: 1-53, 2-54, 3-91, 4-169 5-176, 6-177, 7-188, 8-206, 9-224, 10-233.

Australia's pace battery of Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazelwood and Pat Cummins was expected to cause the English batsmen plenty of problems but Nathan Lyon has been the surprise packet of the summer.

It all worked out in the end with Australia cantering to a 120-run victory to take a 2-0 lead in the series on Wednesday, but Smith conceded he might have had a sleepless night if he did not have a bit of pharmaceutical assistance. Umpires: Aleem Dar, Pakistan, and Chris Gaffaney, New Zealand.
