The Ashes has been the most Sought after test series of the year, and it is living up to the expectations.

Having pipped England to a ten-wicket win in the first test, Australia were on the front foot at the end of Day 1 in the ongoing day-night test match at Adelaide Oval.

However, the visitors were on a front foot in the very first over of the day on the second day. Stuart Broad caught Handscomb right before the wickets.

But a gritty Shaun Marsh had ensured that Aussies were put on a back foot with his well made hundred.

He got excellent support from Tim Paine as the wicketkeeper made the most of the crisis. He scored an impressive half-century. The duo has rescued Aussies from getting out for a paltry score. Pat’s Cummins once again shined with the bat after scoring yet another important 44.

The hosts eventually declared the innings at 442/8 in 149 overs. England came to bat to close down the massive first innings total made by Australia.

But Mitchell Starc sent opener Stoneman back to the pavilion before rain played spoilsport to close the day’s play.

Here is how the Twitterati reacted to the events that unfolded in yet another interesting day’s of play.
