David Warner was fired for a pair in the 5th Ashes Test
David Warner has been dismissed for a pair – the second of his Test career – on Day 2 of the ongoing fifth and final Ashes Test against England in Hobart. In the first inning of Australia’s second inning, Warner hit a wide Stuart Broad delivery through the air to the point area, where Ollie Pope flew to his right to take a brilliant hold. The Australian fly-half walked away with a wry smile on his face. Warner was dismissed for a 22-ball duck in Australia’s first inning by Ollie Robinson in this pink ball day-night test.

Marnus Labuschagne was next to go for 5. He was dismissed by Chris Woakes as England got off to a good start with the ball in the second set. Australia, however, continued to have the upper hand in the Test after another disappointing batting performance from England.
Australia took a huge lead of 115 in their second set after beating England for 188 in the final session of Saturday’s second day.
England previously edged Australia out for 303 points midway through the first session.
But they failed to make an impression with the bat – their top scorer was number eight Chris Woakes with 36.
Skipper Pat Cummins was the choice of Australian bowlers with 4-45. Mitchell Starc also contributed with three wickets.
Australia have already retained the Ashes by taking an unbeatable 3-0 lead in the five Test series. The hosts won the first three Tests quite comfortably before England managed to snatch a thrilling draw in the fourth Test to avoid a shutout.
