England won the toss and elected to bat.
MM Ali contributed 30 runs to his team scorecard and out when 102.4 snorting short ball, Moeen gloves to the keeper! He rarely looked comfortable out there and now he walks, the Australia fielders knew he’d got something on it, the third wicket for Cummins… Was just the right height to get Moeen fending at it in self-preservation and there was a flick of the glove as it steamed through 294/7.
Australia faced 67 overs in yesterday’s play and scored 193 runs with two wickets down. CT Bancroft opener of the Australian team gone with duck, DA Warner smashed 56 runs off 104 balls and out when it was 31.4 lovely line, that’s gotten – up goes the finger! Beautifully bowled. nipping away to kiss the edge and Bairstow snags a low catch to send Warner on his way! He shakes his head, probably feeling there was a big one in the offing… but Anderson has landed the big fish. Maybe just cut his fingers down the side of the ball and it left Warner appreciably 86/2. He smashed six boundaries in his innings. UT Khawaja 91 not out and SPD Smith (c) 44 not out.
