England vs Australia 4th Test Day 2 | Scorecard | 2013

Jonathan Trott appeals

England had another frustrating day

A frustrating day for England after they were bowled out at the same score where they left at day 1 stumps. England made 238 runs, the Aussies stopping them below 250 runs with skipper Cook being the highest run-scorer of the day making 51 runs and Nathan Lyon, picking up 4 wickets.

Australia commenced the first innings on the second day of the test match, Chris Rogers and David Warner opening for the side. The southpaw David Warner fell earlier, followed by Usman Khawaja’s dismissal as Stuart Broad struck twice in his consecutive overs, both wickets fell when Australia were 12-0. The man who produced gem in the last game for the Aussies, showed his class and responsibility, Michael Clarke made only six runs before he edged to Cook in slips off Broad, playing a pretty pathetic shot.

Steven Smith too ruined his innings by just poking a ball that lead to an outside edge off Tim Bresnan into the hands of wicketkeeper Matt Prior. Australia at that stage were into jeopardy as they were 76-4 after the dismissal of Steven Smith. Ugly was beautiful for Chris Rogers and Australia. On the most difficult day to bat in the Investec Ashes series so far, with Stuart Broad breathing fire in the sorts of spells he can occasionally conjure, Rogers scrapped, scraped, nudged and edged his way to a century few who witnessed it will forget.

Shane Watson was bought back into form, making 68 runs and guiding Australia to a formidable position, aiding Chris Rogers, helping him to edge his way to a maiden test hundred. Australia were in an excellent position with Chris Rogers at 101* and Brad Haddin at 12* and they were left at a double Nelson i.e, 222-5 before bad light stopped the play and that guided the day to stumps.

Scorecard

England 238/10
