Australia have dominated the opening day of the Adelaide Test courtesy Marnus Labuschagne and David Warner’s 172-run partnership for the second wicket. Both players played very much the way they played coupled with a few antics from Australia’s number three. It was a tough day for the veteran England pacers who toiled hard throughout the day with not much return. 

During his innings, Marnus Labuschange kept annoying the opposition with his antics. He was continuously talking to himself during the knock, a snippet of which was even captured. 

He is heard saying “Well Played Man” from a delivery that was bowled to him by Ben Stokes. It was a bouncer bowled at a good height and he ducked under it.

Meanwhile, David Warner was once again out in the 90s. He was dismissed for 95 by Ben Stokes getting him caught by Stuart Broad inside the circle. It was Stokes who gave him a life in the first Test at The Gabba. 

Meanwhile, this was the second time straight that David Warner was dismissed for 90s in the series. He had a look of disbelief in his eyes when he was dismissed.

On his way back he gave his pair of gloves to a young Aussie fan and made his day. 

England bowlers meanwhile, were made to work hard after losing the toss. Australia in this game is led by Steve Smith after Pat Cummins was asked ruled out for coming in close contact with a COVID positive case. He has been asked to stay in isolation for a week. 

“Cummins was dining in a restaurant last night and did not breach any biosecurity protocols. He isolated as soon as he became aware of the situation and has since had a PCR test, which produced a negative result. We anticipate that he will be available to play in the third Vodafone men’s Ashes Test at the MCG in Melbourne,” a release from Cricket Australia stated.
