England vs Australia 2nd Test Day 5 Highlights, Ashes 2019: Australia Survive As Lord's Test Against England Ends In A Draw
ENG vs AUS 2nd Test Day 5 Highlights, Ashes 2019: The second Test between England and Australia ended in a draw as Australia managed to score 154/6 in the fourth innings.
The second Test between England and Australia ended in a draw at Lord's on Sunday. Australia, set an unlikely 267 to win in a minimum of 48 overs after England captain Joe Root's declaration, finished on 154/6. A draw always looked likely in a match that saw five whole sessions lost to rain and Australia's Steve Smith ruled out with concussion on Sunday after being hit on the neck by a Jofra Archer bouncer during his innings of 92 on Saturday. Four wickets after tea gave England hope of what would have been a stunning win. Ashes-holders Australia, bidding for their first Test series win away to England in 18 years, remain 1-0 up in the five-match campaign following their 251-run victory at Edgbaston last week. The third Test at Headingley starts on Thursday. (SCORECARD)

Leach gets rid of Labuschagne!Marnus Labuschagne goes for a sweep which ricochets off the pad of short leg fielder and goes to Joe root and he claims he has completed the catch cleanly. The two onfield umpires decide to go upstairs and their soft signal is out. TV umpire Joel Wilson after checking all the possible angles rules in England's favour, Labuschagne certainly is not happy with that decision. His fabulous innings comes to an end at 59.

Huge LBW appeal...Not out!Chris Woakes gets the ball to hit Marnus Labuschagne high on the pad, goes straight up but his appeal is turned down by the umpire Aleem Dar.

England on top!Looking at the way the game is progressing, England are the ones who are playing for a win here which is why they are still persisting with Jofra Archer who is in his 10th over. Joe Root has provided him with a couple of close catching options. Australian batsmen are looking to defend rather than scoring runs.
