Ashes 2017-18 second Test live: Adelaide Oval, day two

What a day it was yesterday, with England sending Australia into bat in the first ever men's Ashes pink ball Test.

Australia batted pretty well but three batsmen didn't go on with their digs - Steve Smith (40), Usman Khawaja (53) and David Warner (47) failed to cash in on good starts.

Peter Handscomb (36 n.o) and Shaun Marsh (20 n.o) will resume Australia's innings at 4/209.

England didn't bowl brilliantly on day one, however the highlight was debutant Craig Overton's first Test wicket - the prized dismissal of Smith.

The English bowlers were inconsistent with their length yesterday and will need to be more diligent with that today. The wickets of Marsh and Handscomb are crucial given the lack of batting to come in Australia's line up.
