It has been a disciplined effort from Mark Wood on the second day’s morning as there have been no freebies whatsoever. He got the rewards too as Mitchell Starc was done for with another short ball that climbed quickly onto him. The top edge went only as far as Rory Burns at square leg. The hosts have been reduced to 263/8 and would be a tad unhappy with the scoreline given the platform laid by centurion Travis Head and Cameron Green. Although Nathan Nyon and Alex Carey can be banked upon to stretch the first-innings total.
