• Unlike day one, the morning was clear and hot, so there was minimal swing for England's pacemen.
  • Steve Smith strode out to resume his innings, on 38 not out.
  • Stuart Broad had to leave the field for treatment on his shoulder, but returned soon after. He did not look comfortable though.
  • Smith scored the first fifty of the series, but was out for 53 to James Anderson.
  • Anderson then removed Mitchell Starc and Peter Siddle to record his five-fer.
  • In the meantime, Brad Haddin was bowled by Graeme Swann for one.
  • Swann also trapped James Pattinson in front to put the Aussies nine down.
  • Ashton Agar appeared to be stumped when on six, but the third umpire said not out...
  • ...and he went on to make a half century on debut, at number 11.
  • Agar and Phil Hughes put on an unbeaten century stand at lunch.
  • Agar was out for an agonising 98, but Australia had a lead of 65 and he had the best score by a number 11 in Tests.
  • Mitchell Starc dismissed Joe Root and Jonathan Trott in the final over before tea.
  • Kevin Pietersen made 35 not out as England reached 80 for two at stumps, a lead of 15.
