The play of day 1 ended at the Adelaide Oval between Australia and England. In the second Ashes Test match where Australia is able to score 221 runs for just the loss of 2 wickets.
Pat Cummins missed out on the match after he came out in close contact with a covid-19 positive case. Therefore Steve Smith was named the Captain. Smith won the toss in the day-night test and elected to bat first.
For Australia, After the early wicket of Marcus Harris, batter Marnus Labuschagne and David Warner led the batting charge for Australia by putting up a partnership of 172 runs. Harris got out while playing a pull shot in which he was totally out of control and the ball took an edge and with the brilliant dive to his right, Jos Buttler the keeper took a Stunner which ended Harris’s innings.
After a brilliant catch, Buttler dropped two catches of Labuschagne
The right-hander ended the day on 95* but in those 95 runs innings, he was dropped twice by England’s keeper Jos Buttler.
The first chance was a tough one when Buttler failed to hold on a tough leg-side chance when Labuschagne gloved one-off Ben Stokes when he was playing on 21.
The other chance arrived at the closing stage of play, where Butter dropped a relatively straightforward chance when Labuschagne got a thick edge one off Anderson when on 95.
David Warner, once again failed in nerves 90s as the pocket-size Dynamo scored 95 runs and missed his well deserved 100 by 5 runs whereas
Labuschagne would find him very lucky as he got two lifelines and still have a chance to make a three-digit score tomorrow.
