England’s disappointing streak in the ashes 2021/22 continues. In the second test match in Adelaide, the English team suffered a major defeat by 275 runs. Previously at Gabba, Australia defeated the visiting team by 9 wickets. The Kangaroos had set a target of 468 runs for victory over England, but the whole team was ready for 192 runs. During this, hitter Jos Buttler was definitely seen struggling, but the unfortunate Butler’s innings ended with a punch. Butler scored 26 runs on 207 balls.

AUS vs ENG 2nd Test: Australia leads 2-0 in series after defeating England by 275 runs

Australia only needed 6 wickets on the last day of the match. Everyone felt that the hosts would finish England in the first session, but Butler did not approve. Butler stayed at one end and Stokes, Woakes and Robinson supported him for some time. There was a time when it looked like Butler could get the game through this inning, but then he got hit by Jhye Richardson.

Butler broke the record of former South African goalkeeper AB de Villiers due to his slow tackles. Butler’s strike rate of 12.56 during this inning was the lowest strike rate for a goalie in test cricket since former England player Jack Russell. AB de Villiers scored 33 runs on 220 balls against Australia in 2012, during which his strike rate was 15.

Australia announced the team for the remaining 3 games of the Ashes series, the return of these 2 players.
