Aussie bowlers lift, David Warner falls on pulsating day two at Lord’s


Australia has bowled England out for 258 to leave the second Ashes Test well-poised after day two.

The Aussie quicks were on top with the hosts at 6 for 163 but took the foot off the pedal.

England took that momentum into the field, managing to dismiss David Warner for just 3 runs before the end of play.

The 32-year-old fell to his old nemesis Stuart Broad for the third time this series, sending the Barmy Army into raptures.

Australia made it to stumps at 1-30 from 13 overs.

Fast bowler Pat Cummins (3-61) and spinner Nathan Lyon (3-68) were the pick of the bowlers while Rory Burns and Jonny Bairstow were the only batsmen to make runs, both our in the 50s.

Former Australian player and coach, Darren Lehmann, says it was great start to the Test for the Aussies after Day One was washed out.

“What a day for Australia,” he told Macquarie Sports Radio.

“If rain can stay away, there could still be a result in this game.”
