Australia will resume at 4/209 on a day that promises to not just shape the outcome of this Test match but even the entire Ashes series.

Peter Handscomb (36*) and Shaun Marsh (20*) looked comfortable defending the pink ball under lights as England’s fast bowlers failed to fire in their first taste of day-night Ashes cricket.

The touring team will be hoping for quick wickets early on Day 2 while Australia will want to notch up a significant lead before unleashing the likes of Mitch Starc and Pat Cummins on England during the night session.
