The English batters once again found it difficult to play against the strong Aussie bowling line-up. The visitors took wickets on regular intervals until Jos Buttler came to the crease and rescued his side.
With the help of 3 sixes and 7 fours, Buttler reached a total score of 70 runs to give England a respectable total at the end. England finished on 294 before losing 6 wickets with just over 200 runs on the board.
Captain Joe Root (57) contributed with a half-century and the opening batsman Rory Burns also chipped in with handy 47 runs at the top. Mitchell Marsh, who was making a comeback for Australia took 5 wickets to record a memorable Ashes outing with the bowl.
