England continued to chip in with wickets at regular intervals in the second session, pocketing yet another session on the second day of the Boxing Day Test. Despite copping uniform blows, Australia managed to take a lead and went to Tea at 200 for 6, ahead by just 15 on day two at the MCG. Following Marcus Harris’ 76, Alex Carey and Cameron Green batted 60 balls for the 20 they stitched together but managed to keep England at bay, who have put up a great bowling show led by veteran pacer James Anderson’s three-wicket haul.
