Starc, Hazlewood lead Australia to second Test victory

Ashes 2017-18 second Test: England batting collapse hands Australia 2-0 lead in Adelaide

Chasing 354 runs to win, England were bowled out for 233, which saw their last six wickets going for just 57 runs in the historic day-night affair.

Moeen Ali was then out leg before to Nathan Lyon attempting to sweep the ball across the line, before Mitchell Starc's pace accounted for Craig Overton and Stuart Broad.

The third test starts December 14 in Perth, where England are in danger of surrendering the urn after winning the Ashes on home soil in 2015.

No captain had ever inserted the opposition in a day-night Test before and the decision soon backfired as Australia posted 8-442 declared in their first innings.

Vaughan suggested England had neither the skill nor resilience to win a match."This was the week we all fancied England to take something from", he said in comments in The Australian Friday.

"The way we went about it yesterday was exceptional and that has to be the benchmark going forward", he said.

"We thought if we could come out and bowl well this morning, hit our lengths and get one or two wickets, then things can happen quickly", he added. We also wanted to keep the England bowlers bowling.

After losing the series-opener by 10 wickets in Brisbane last week, Root won the toss and sent Australia into bat at the Adelaide Oval - something last done by an Englishman in his position in 1982.

England could turn to a paceman of their own to exploit the Perth surface, with Mark Wood being given a chance to impress selectors after being included in a two-day England Lions warm-up against a Cricket Australia XI in Perth on Saturday. England folded for 227, handing Australia a lead of 215. That let England back into the test.

Former England captains Michael Vaughan and Bob Willis fear the tourists are heading towards a 5-0 whitewash against Australia after failing to win the Adelaide Test. We have neither."At this rate, you wouldn't be surprised if it was 5-0, as Adelaide probably represented England's best chance to chalking up a victory". "It doesn't make any difference anymore".
