Australia vs England – Ashes: Live score and updates from Day Two of the second Test

Ashes Day Two LIVE: England face uphill struggle as Australia aim to pile on first-innings runs at the Adelaide Oval… with Marnus Labuschagne just five runs short of sixth Test century

Australia will be eyeing a mammoth first-innings score after dominating the opening day of the second Ashes Test in Adelaide against England.

The hosts ended day one of the pink-ball Test on 221 for two, with Marnus Labuschagne set to resume on his overnight score of 95 not out after being dropped twice by Jos Buttler.

Opener David Warner also battled through rib pain to make 95 before he picked out Stuart Broad at cover off Ben Stokes, while captain Steve Smith – standing in for the isolating Pat Cummins – has also got a start on 18 not out.
