Early lunch was taken on Day One of the second Ashes 2013-14 Test between Australia and England at the Adelaide Oval on Thursday due to rain. Australia are at 46 for one with Chris Rogers batting on seven and Shane Watson batting on 10.

 

David Warner (29) was the only wicket to fall in a truncated first session in Adelaide. Stuart Broad got the wicket.

 

Australia captain Michael Clarke won the toss and elected to bat first at the Adelaide Oval. Australia went in with an unchanged side that beat England comprehensively in the first Test in Brisbane at The Gabba.

 

England handed a debut to all-rounder Ben Stokes who came in for Jonathan Trott. Monty Panesar also came into the side replacing Chris Tremlett.

 

Rogers and Warner opened the batting for Australia. James Anderson began proceedings and bowled a maiden first up. There was a delay as a passing shower stopped play for a few minutes.

 

After the delay, Warner hit a four off Anderson through cover. Rogers then got off the mark with a single in front of point off Stuart Broad. Warner then cut one off Broad through backward point for another four.

 

Warner was in the mood and he drove Broad straight down the ground for another four. Broad bowled a short delivery at Warner, but he pulled through mid-wicket for another four.

 

But Warner’s stay was limited as he hit a short and wide delivery from Broad straight to Michael Carberry at point.

 

New batsman Shane Watson got off the mark with a single towards midwicket off Anderson. Broad then bowled a maiden over to Watson. Anderson then bowled two deliveries off the 11th over when rain delayed play again.

 

Once play resumed, Watson hit a full delivery from Broad past mid-off for a four. Next ball Broad bowled a slower one well outside off and Watson drove it square in-between point and cover for another four.

 

Graeme Swann was brought into the attack and he too bowled a maiden over first up. Anderson continued and the rain came back again for a third time. The umpires called for an early lunch.

 

Brief scores:

 

Australia 46 for 1 (David Warner 29, Shane Watson 10*; Stuart Broad 1 for 26) vs England.
