England Comes out to Bat

·        The England openers Hamid and Rory’s burns come to the crease to chase down the target. Richardson dismisses Hammed in the very first over of England’s Second Innings. “Richardson runs, bowls fast at a speed of 142km and gets the extra bounce from the pitch and stuns Hammed, sending him out of the ground.”

·        Malan and Burns continue the innings and score a couple of boundaries to put some runs on the board.  “Hence in the 21st over, Nesser comes and bowls a ripper delivery, straight into the pads of the inform Dawid Malan and gets him off the ground.”

·        England batters constantly fail to play the Australian bowlers, and back-to-back wickets start to fall.

·        In the last over of the fourth day, Stark starts his over and hurts the England captain Joe Root with many bouncers and stuns him with outswingers. “Eventually, in the last ball of Day 4, Stark gets root with an outswinger, and now Australia only needs six wickets to get themselves victories in the second test match.


Englands failed to outplay the Australians in the Second test match; the scenarios have not changed much from the 1st test match of ashes 2021-22.


Therefore on day 5, Australia would look to steal England’s hope and get six remaining wickets and be victories.
