AUS beat ENG: Australia thrash England by 275 runs, take 2-0 lead with thumping win in Adelaide

Resuming the final session on Day 5 at 180/8, England was given a body blow almost immediately as Jhye Richardson dismissed Jos Buttler (26). The Three Lions’ wicketkeeper’s 207-ball stay came to an unfortunate end as he was hit wicket.

The final wicket of James Anderson (2) was taken by Richardson and Australia registered an emphatic win in the second Test.

Earlier, at tea on Day 5, England’s score read 180/8 with the visitors still needing 288 more runs to win. In the second session on Monday, Australia picked two wickets to move closer to victory. Chris Woakes was dismissed by Jhye Richardson while Ollie Robinson was removed at the cusp of the Tea.

At the dinner break, England’s score reads 142/6 with Buttler (16*) and Woakes (28*) still on the crease. England need 326 runs to win while Australia require four wickets for victory. Resuming Day Five, England got off to a bad start that only worsened with time before Buttler and Woakes fought back.

Australia is in the driver’s seat especially with England skipper Joe Root’s wicket falling on the last ball of Day 4’s play. They will be looking to wrap up things as quickly as possible and as Jhye Richardson said that pitch has spiced up, England faces an uphill task.

The tourists will be hoping for another Ben Stokes’s Headingley heroics. While a victory looks improbable with 386 runs required, England has Ben Stokes, Ollie Pope, Jos Buttler, and a couple more batters to stand a chance to end it in a draw.

However, looking at Australia’s 100 % win record in the pink-ball Test and the current situation of the ongoing Test, it’s highly unlikely England could deny Australia going two-nil up in the Ashes 2021.
