Eng v Aus The Ashes highlights, today – Second test day five from Adelaide Oval (Australia) Wednesday 6th December 2017. Yesterday England’s captain JE Root and DJ Malan gave a big headache to Australians but at the end of the day DJ Malan got out at 29 and all pressure gone which was created by both batsmen.
Now JE Root still not out at 67 with CR Woakes who scored 5 runs and England is 178 runs behind from the target with six wickets remaining. If England achieved this second test target then it will be the highest chase for England and also it will be listed in the top ten highest successful runs chases. The last time England’s highest successful chase was 332 almost 90 years ago.
England won the toss and elected to field.
