England crumble again as wickets tumble on day two – The Final Word podcast

Emma John recaps day two in Hobart, where England failed miserably with the bat, reaching only 188 in reply to Australia’s first innings total of 303. There was a little joy for the tourists’ bowlers, though, who later took three wickets – including a second duck of the match for David Warner – but Australia closed 152 ahead.

Meanwhile Adam Collins and Geoff Lemon were in Hobart for all the action on day two and they discuss Nathan Lyon’s hearty late-order hitting and how England’s batters blew it again.
