The short ball ploy from Ben Stokes finally paid dividends in his 11th over as the well-set David Warner slapped a short one straight to cover. He missed a ton for the second time in the series, and the wicket against the run of play ended a 172-run stand with Marnus Labuschagne. The next man in is stand-in skipper Steve Smith, who wasn't able to contribute in the Ashes opener with the bat and would be keen to make amends.
