On day 2, Australia got all out at 317 runs on a batting surface and Woakes took a fifer.  English batters continued their baseball approach,opener Crawley set the tone and Root and Moeen made crucial contributions with the bat. Crawley  scored a century.

On day 3, Bairstow remained not out at 99 and England took a massive lead of 275 runs. Hazlewood took a fifer. Australia came to bat in the final season but the forecast was bad in the final session.

On day 4, the morning session washed out but Labuschagne scored a century and made a partnership with Marsh. Root broke the partnership and once again play stopped due to rain in the final session and the umpire called the day off early.

On day 5, the day was whitewashed and a single ball couldn’t delivered and England hope also get washed with rain.
