Australia rip through England to claim 2-0 lead

Starc mopped up the tail to finish with five for 88.

Australia now have an opportunity to regain the Ashes in the third Test, which begins at the WACA on Thursday next week.

"I didn't think it could happen that quickly", Hazlewood said. "You want to stamp your authority on the game and to get the early wickets was good, particularly the captain Joe Root", Hazlewood told Grandstand after play.

Hazlewood, who claimed Root, also grabbed his partner Chris Woakes for five, which was again his overnight score.

Root's innings was always going to be crucial to his team's chances of chasing down a record 354 at Adelaide Oval and although the innings limped on into a second hour, the hope raised among the English on Tuesday was gone.

England lost six wickets in the first session as they were bowled out for 233 shortly before tea.

"Certainly, all of our players have competed at different times during, not just this Test match but the first as well, and showed they can bat".

Umpire Aleem Dar had taken an age to raise his finger and rule that Woakes had been caught behind and despite no sign of an edge on Hot Spot a slight spike on Snicko convinced television official Marais Erasmus to confirm the decision. But we're still in the series.

Moeen Ali was then out leg before to Nathan Lyon attempting to sweep the ball across the line, before Mitchell Starc's pace accounted for Craig Overton and Stuart Broad.

That left England lurching towards defeat on 188 for seven after 45 minutes of play on the final day.

The result means that Australia has a ideal record in day-night Tests, having prevailed in all three of the pink-ball matches they have played in Adelaide, as well as the Test they won against Pakistan in Brisbane last summer.

"It's obviously very disappointing [to lose]", added the 26-year-old, who snicked Josh Hazlewood behind from the 17th ball on day five.

Marsh, whose ton proved to be the differentiator between the two teams, remained unbeaten on 126 as Australia declared their innings on 442/8.
