(AP: Rick Rycroft) Ruthless bowling and some brilliant catching has seen Australia maintain its advantage over England on day three of the second Ashes Test in Adelaide, with the tourists finishing the day 267 runs behind. Australia went to stumps on 4-53 with Peter Handscomb (3 not out) and the nightwatchman Nathan Lyon (2 not out) at the crease after enduring a scintillating spell of swing bowling from James Anderson (2-16) which claimed the wickets of Cameron Bancroft (4) and Usman Khawaja (20).

(AAP: Dave Hunt) Chris Woakes (2-13) backed him up with the vital wickets of David Warner (14) and Steve Smith (6) late on to cap off a fine last session for England. Despite Australia's first-innings lead of 215 and the altered conditions of day-night cricket, Smith decided against enforcing the follow-on when England were dismissed for 227 in reply to Australia's total of 8-442 declared. Whether that was the right call or not, the hosts are still reasonably well-positioned to take a daunting 2-0 lead in the five-Test Ashes series, though Smith's wicket in particular will give England more than a glimmer of hope of staying in the game. All of Australia's top-line bowlers contributed to England's first-innings demise, with Lyon and Starc the stand-outs with four and three wickets respectively. England began the day on 1-29 and James Vince fell early to an inside edge off Hazlewood, sharply taken down the leg side by Tim Paine. That brought together the two best batsman and leaders of the side, Joe Root and Alastair Cook, but the partnership would not last long enough to have Australia genuinely worried. Cummins had Root edging to Bancroft in the cordon and Lyon took care of Cook, who got a thick edge to a gleeful Smith at first slip. The next three wickets were all caught and bowled, the first two of which were both brilliant in their own way.
