As Australia are likely to win the second Test against England in the ongoing Ashes series, Australia batsman Usman Khawaja was seen in a jovial mood on the fourth day of the game in Adelaide. During the pink-ball Test, he was seen dancing near the fine-leg fence in front of the Barmy Army.

However, Australia chose not to enforce the follow-on even after bowling England out for 236 after declaring for 473/9 in the first innings as well, where Marnus Labuschagne scored 103 and nineties from both David Warner and Steve Smith set the stage before Mitchell Starc and Nathan Lyon destroyed England’s middle-order.

As far as England’s game is concerned, they have once again collapsed despite Dawid Malan and Joe Root’s half-centuries, who stitched a 138-run stand between them as well in the first innings. However, before the stumps on the fourth day, England posted 82/4 while chasing 468 to win.

Meanwhile, as we approached the end of the day’s play, Usman Khawaja was seen entertaining the fans with his dance moves.

Watch the clip here:

After the game, Jhye Richardson said: “Nicely set up from Lyon from one end. Ruffled Root there and drew the false shot. I didn’t think I bowled too badly in the first innings. The wicket has quickened up a little bit today. It was nice to see him (Green) get some runs as well. He comes from a height, so it’s not easy to face. I tried to hit a first ball six in the first innings.”

However, for England, it will be a herculean task to win the match considering their batting woes. While Joe Root got out on the final ball on the day for 4, all-rounder Ben Stokes remained unbeaten at 3 as well. It will be interesting to see the result on the final day tomorrow.
