The Ashes: England collapse to go 2-0 down

Wednesday, December 6, 2017

England folded quickly in pursuit of a national-record chase as Australia took six wickets in under a session to go 2-0 up in the Ashes with a 120-run victory.

Joe Root took it upon himself to keep English hopes alive as his team tried to complete a remarkable reversal of fortune in the second Ashes Test at the Adelaide Oval.

Re-energised England produced a spirited revival with bat and ball but still trailed badly after three days of the second Ashes Test at the Adelaide Oval.

England at least defied expectations of an instant twilight collapse after Shaun Marsh’s century piled the pressure on them on day two of the second Ashes Test.

England struggled to vindicate Joe Root’s gamble to bowl first on a cagey first day of the inaugural pink-ball Ashes Test at the Adelaide Oval.

Essex will begin the defence of their Specsavers County Championship title with a trip to new head coach Anthony McGrath’s former club Yorkshire on April 13.

It’s the hope that kills you.
