Superb England dominate Australia: 2nd Test Ashes: BBC SPORT – Cricket

Astonishing and superb play from England team today.

Oliver Brett, BBC SPORT: “James Anderson took four wickets as England seized control of the second Ashes Test at Lord’s with a tremendous bowling display late on the second day.

Replying to England’s 425, Australia recovered from a poor start which saw them slip to 10-2 and soon after tea had reached a solid position of 103-2.

But an outstanding running catch by Stuart Broad at fine leg to end Simon Katich‘s innings on 48 triggered a collapse in which the Aussies crashed to 152-8, losing six wickets for 49 in 15 overs – a passage of play that will live long in the memories of those who witnessed it.

At stumps, with bad light having finally suspended Australia’s agonising slump, Australia were still 269 runs behind on 156-8, and needing another 70 to avoid the follow-on.

With a five-man bowling attack at his disposal captain Andrew Strauss will be tempted to impose the follow-on should he have the option to do so on Saturday…”more
