Posed with the tough ask to bat out 134 overs in their final innings to save the match, England managed to knock off 113.1 on the final day of the day-nighter in Adelaide but couldn’t prevent Australia from taking a 2-0 lead. Leading the resolute resistance was Jos Buttler, who blocked 207 balls before being dismissed hit wicket. England had their moments, but it was going to be Australia’s game after the stand between Dawid Malan and Joe Root broke in the first innings. Marnus Labuschgane has been awarded the player of the match for his first Ashes ton.
