As he had been dismissed for five the response of Australia to England’s 294 all out on day two at The 29, david Warner’s nightmare Ashes series lasted.
SCORECARD | COMMENTARY / IN-PLAY CLIPS
The left-hander avoided the ignominy of four ducks that were consecutive but later edging Jofra Archer for four and clipping Stuart Broad to get one, he chased a ball and was caught behind by Jonny Bairstow.
Archer also had Marcus Harris (3) caught at slip, meaning England are currently once again working out how to discount Steve Smith (14no), that, alongside Marnus Labuschagne (32no), has assisted Australia from 14-2 to 55-2 at dinner, a shortage of 239 runs.
Sam Curran did trigger Smith a few problems near the interval viewing two outspoken lbw appeals turned down by Kumar Dharamsena later he’d struck on chunks which curled in against the right-hander onto the pad.
Dharmasena’s fellow umpire Warner was not given by Marais Erasmus out but was forced to overturn his conclusion with UltraEdge revealing a very clear spike as the batsman looked to reduce Archer after an England review.
Warner’s show average is now 9.33 – the opener has left double figures only once, in the first innings of the third Test at Headingley when he battled with 61.
The 32-year-old’s exit ensured there have been a record-extending 18 opening stands below fifty inside this show, beating the 16 seen in the West Indies vs England show in 1934-35.
England had previously added 23 runs to their overnight 271-8 before Australia polished off the innings 31 balls to the morning’s drama – Jos Buttler (70) along with Jack Leach (21) the guys to collapse and Mitchell Marsh (5-46) finishing his eponymous Test-match five-wicket haul.
Buttler’s effervescent knock came to a close when he was bowled by Pat Cummins (3-84) off inside edge and pad – Cummins moving on 27 wickets to the series at 18.59 – while Leach was bowled because he defended a delivery from Marsh onto his stumps.
