ENGLAND v AUSTRALIA DAY TWO OF THE SECOND TEST SNAPSHOT

STATE OF PLAY: England - 258 Australia - 1-30.

MAN OF THE DAY: Josh Hazlewood. Ably supported by Pat Cummins (3-61) the big quick celebrated his recall to the Test team in superb fashion in a brilliant spell of bowling that saw him dismiss Jason Roy, Joe Root and Joe Denly.

KEY MOMENT: Cameron Bancroft's stunning close-range catch at short leg to dismiss Rory Burns for 53 off Cummins ended a dangerous looking innings from the in-form England opener.

STAT OF THE DAY: Nathan Lyon's dismissal of Stuart Broad saw him equal Dennis Lillee's record of 355 Test wickets for Australia.

QUOTE OF THE DAY: "I really struggle to see myself up with the likes of Warne, McGrath, Lillee, it doesn't sit well with me. In my eyes those guys are true legends of the game and I'm just some bloke trying to bowl off breaks." Lyon on reaching his new milestone.
