Ashes 2021-22: Watch - Jos Buttler dropped an easy sitter of Marnus Labuschagne


The second Test of the Ashes 2021-22 is going on between Australia and England at the Adelaide Oval in Adelaide. Talking about the match, the hosts, Australia have won the toss and elected to bat first. Pat Cummins has been ruled out of this match as Steve Smith has taken the charge in his absence.

The stand-in skipper will be looking to get some runs with his bat as he didn't create much impact in the first Test. David Warner and Marcus Harris opened the innings for Australia after their skipper won the toss and opted to bat first.

The England bowlers, Stuart Broad and James Anderson who have been added to the line-up have straightaway done their job. Both the bowlers' including Chris Woakes and Ollie Robinson didn't let the openers play their strokes freely.

They continuously troubled the batters by hitting the perfect line and length and made it more difficult to aggregate runs on this wicket. However, Stuart Broad finally provided the breakthrough for England, by sending Marcus Harris back to the pavilion with the number of just 3.

Summary of the second Test of Day 1:

Jos Buttler

It was a fabulous catch taken by Jos Buttler to dismiss the Australian opener. Then Marcus Labuschagne joined with the left-hander and started to stitch another crucial partnership likewise they did in the first Test against the visitors. 

Both the batsmen played well against the opposition bowlers and added172 runs for the second wicket partnership. David Warner once again missed his well deserved hundred after being dismissed for 95 runs by Ben Stokes.

However, Marnus Labuschagne continued to trouble the opposition bowlers and the stand-in skipper Steven Smith joined with him on the other end. But Jos Buttler dropped an easy catch of Marnus Labuschage which will remain very costly for them. 

Now, both Steve Smith and Marnus Labuschagne have been batting on 95 and 18 runs and will be looking to post a huge total on the board, as Australia has now scored 221 runs for the loss of two wickets.
