Day recap:

Australia have taken narrow honours on Day 2 of the second Ashes Test at Lord’s, with the tourists knocking England over for 258 on the first day of actual play.

After a washed out Day 1, Tim Paine won the toss and elected to bowl, and was vindicated as England folded, only saved by some runs late in the piece, led by Jonny Bairstow’s half century.

Australia then faced a difficult 13-over stint to stumps, but only the loss of David Warner put a dampener on a day they will be fairly happy with.

England first innings: 10/258 (77.1)
Australia first innings: 1/30 (13)

Australia trail by 228 runs with ten wickets remaining.

Match preview

Much brighter conditions will meet England and Australia as they are finally able to get the second Test of the 2019 Ashes series underway at Lord’s. Join The Roar for live scores and coverage from 8pm (AEST).

With a complete washout on Day 1 at Lord’s, the match will revert to a four-day game, meaning the follow-on is now just 150 runs, and 98 overs will be bowled per day instead of the usual 90.


The Australian side come into the contest full of confidence having finally broken through for their first win at Edgbaston since 2001 in the series opener.

It was an incredible performance from the tourists, particularly when you consider how far behind they were on Day 1, at one point being 8 for 122.

Aggressive cricket will need to be the order of the day at Lord’s if either team want to push for a result though, with more rain forecast throughout Day 3 and 4, although, unlike yesterday, we shouldn’t lose entire days.

While all the talk before yesterday’s rain was that the pitch would be dry and flat, maybe taking turn later in the match, it could well now have plenty of moisture underneath it, and it’s thought whichever team wins the toss is likely to bowl first.

England will be especially keen to bowl first, with Jofra Archer set to make his Test debut for the home side in what is essentially a Test they can’t afford to lose if they harbour hopes of regaining the Ashes.

Archer, with his express pace, will provide the English attack a point of difference, and a new avenue in attempting to get Steve Smith out before he makes another squillion runs.

Smith made twin-centuries at Edgbaston and was a major part of the reason Australia were able to take the 1-0 series lead, but he needs support from the rest of the Australian order this time around, particularly at the top of the order.

David Warner and Cameron Bancroft both failed at Edgbaston, and must find a way to get amongst the runs at Lord’s, with Marcus Harris pushing for a spot at Headingley if they don’t.


The other key question for Australia is shaping as the nature of their bowling attack. Josh Hazlewood, Mitchell Starc and Peter Siddle all appear to be competing for two spots with James Pattinson rested.

Hazlewood was thought to have the inside running alongside Siddle, but with a shorter match and plenty of rain yesterday, Australia could be tempted to go with the quicker bowling of Starc.
