England lose four wickets as fightback hopes begin to fade

ADELAIDE: England lost four wickets in the first session on day three as their hopes of salvaging a stalemate began to fade already at the Adelaide Oval.

James Vince was caught-behind in the first full over of play, trying to force Josh Hazlewood off the back foot – and then the departures of Joe Root and Alastair Cook, via slip catches off Pat Cummins and Nathan Lyon, spelled big trouble in this second Ashes Test.

Dawid Malan also went before the tea break, from an inside-edge behind to the first ball of a new spell from Cummins.

At the tea break, in reply to 442 for eight declared, England had stumbled to 128 for five and faced a mighty battle to avoid going 2-0 down with three to play.
