It has been a perfect first hour for Australia on the fifth day of the Adelaide Test. They would have wanted a wicket or two to kick-start the day and their wish has been granted. Mitchell Starc bowled a brilliant spell, got rid of Ollie Pope and should have had Buttler too if not for the confusion between Alex Carey and David Warner. Nathan Lyon has extracted purchase from the track and went on to bag the prized scalp of Stokes. The writing is on the wall for England.
That’s the big one! And what a review from Australia 👁
