Bucks make amends for Gabba

Sunday Tasmanian - - Sport -

David Warner (47) and ran out Cameron Ban­croft (10).

An­der­son claimed Us­man Khawaja (53) cour­tesy of an ex­cep­tional James Vince catch but Woakes would have had the No.3 on 44 if Mark Stone­man hadn’t dropped an out­field sit­ter.

Hav­ing put Aus­tralia in to bat against the pink ball in con­di­tions more English than an­tipodean, An­der­son and en­dur­ing off-sider Broad bowled too short with the new rock. Broad found his groove but Aus­tralia would have had 250 as a par score and been well sat­is­fied reach­ing stumps with Peter Hand­scomb (36) and Shaun Marsh (20) re­sum­ing at 4/209.

Aus­tralian pace trio Mitchell Starc, Pat Cum­mins and Josh Ha­zle­wood loom as a fright­en­ing prospect un­der lights on day two.

The over­cast con­di­tions were made for cricket’s mas­ter of swing An­der­son but there was an ab­sence of zest on the open­ing day as there was in Bris­bane from Eng­land’s most pro­lific wicket-taker.

An­der­son, 35, must be re­stricted by a shoul­der blow sus­tained in Bris­bane. He was at his most an­i­mated in a cheek to cheek sledge-fest while Smith was at the crease.
