Steve Smith, who returned after missing the third Test from concussion, scored his 3rd double hundred in Test cricket which helped Australia post a mammoth first innings total of 497/8 decl, putting them in the driver's seat as they finished Day 2 leading by 474 runs. England got off to a poor start as they lost Joe Denly, who was promoted to open the innings in place of Jason Roy, early. Rory Burns was unbeaten on 15 while the nigh watchman Craig Overton was batting on 3. Earlier, apart from Smith, Tim Paine and Mitchell Starc, playing his first game in the series, also scored a half-century. (SCORECARD)
