Ten days played – how many have tourists won?
1st Test Day 1 England close at 196-4 thanks to fifties from rookies James Vince and Mark Stoneman. But their scoring rate and the loss of four wickets make it only a qualified success. Verdict England
England grind their way to a weak, but not disastrous 302 and then reduce Australia to 59-3. But Steve Smith and Shaun Marsh battle through to go in undefeated overnight. Verdict Honours even
At 209-7, Joe Root fails to go for the jugular, as Pat Cummins helps Smith get Australia to a healthy lead. England then lose two wickets late on in a torrid evening. Verdict Australia
Day 4 England are rattled out for 195, with Nathan Lyon taking three. After setting the hosts a target of 170, England need a miracle and a clatter of wickets. None come.
Day 5 David Warner and Cameron Bancroft knock off the remaining runs with ease to wrap up a 10-wicket victory and put the hosts in control of the series.
2nd Test Day 1 After winning the toss and bowling, Root is let down by his bowlers, who do not hit the right lengths. At least the scoring rate is slow as Australia close at 209-4.
Day 2 England are put out of their misery after 149 overs, Australia making 442-8 dec. England, tired, predictably lose an opener in a tough final session under lights.
England are all out for 227, with nobody showing either nous or patience. Smith blunders in not enforcing the follow-on, gifting England some cheap late wickets. Verdict Australia
England’s bowlers do everything they didn’t in the first innings, and skittle the Aussies for 138. They lose four in chasing 354 but get their pride back with Smith looking rattled. Verdict England
Root and Woakes are back in the hutch before many patrons have even sat down and the Australians wrap up the win with no fuss at all to go 2-0 up in the five match series. Verdict Australia
