David Warner (65*) and Marnus Labuschagne (53*) walked back to a round of applause from the dressing room. The pair have combined well to provide Australia a platform for posting a sizeable total. The second session has been an absolute win for the hosts, with Warner and Labuschagne batting patiently to extend the partnership to 140. It was the second fifty of the series for both the batters, and Labuschagne was much more cautious of the two as he got there in 156 balls.
He’s worked hard, and he’s reached 50 #Ashes pic.twitter.com/t62Fi4QLfO
