Australia produced a terrific start to the second Test of the Ashes 2021-22 on Day-5. Their lineup has proven to be difficult for the England team, as Australia has taken a 1-0 lead and will continue to hold the reins for the second match as well. Jhye Richardson proved to be expensive for the team, picking up three key wickets. England appeared to be in great trouble to survive the second test after losing 7 wickets for 177. Jos Buttler 25* (165) and Ollie Robinson 8* (31) are the combo to defend the target, as of now.

Australia needs 3 wickets to win the second test, while England needs 291 runs to win in 35 overs.
