Anderson takes five wickets on Day Four in Second Test

Anderson takes five wickets on Day Four in Second Test

James Anderson took his first five wicket haul in Australia on Day Four of the Second Ashes Test in Adelaide.

Australia, reduced to 53-4 at the close of Day Three, were bowled out for 138 this morning with the Lancashire bowler finishing with figures of 5/43.

He was backed up by Chris Woakes' 4-36 and some excellent catching as no home batsman managed to pass 20.

In England's second innings, Mark Stoneman and Alastair Cook put on 53 which brought Australian frustration and English optimism.

Both batsman fell soon after, along with James Vince which left Joe Root and Malan to battle through an incredibly dramatic period under the lights.

Root was dropped and successful overturned being given out LBW to Lyon and closed on a hard-fought 67 at the close. Malan fell late on and England closed on 176/4 with the visitors needing a further 178 runs to win.
