A fiery spell from Mitchell Johnson helped Australia to bowl out England for 172 in their first innings as early tea was taken on Day Three of the second Ashes 2013-14 Test at the Adelaide Oval. Johnson tool seven wickets in total and was on a hat-trick twice in the afternoon session on Saturday.

 

Ian Bell remained unbeaten on 72. Australia captain Michael Clarke did not enforce the follow-on despite England being behind by 398 runs.

 

The session began with England already in a spot of bother as their score was 116 for three. Ben Stokes got his first run in Test cricket with a single driven towards mid-off. Johnson came steaming in and bowled a quick in-swinging delivery to Stokes. The ball crashed onto the pads and the Australians appealed.

 

The umpire said not out and there was an overthrow that reached the boundary in the cover-point region. The umpire signalled the runs came off the bat meaning got an inside edge on the ball.

 

Clarke asked for the review and there was no edge and the ball would have hit the top of leg-stump. So, Stokes had to depart. Matt Prior was the new man in and Johnson tested him with a couple of quick bouncers. He then bowled one across Prior (0) and he edged it to Brad Haddin behind the wickets.

 

Stuart Broad got bowled round the legs by Johnson first ball. Broad shuffled across towards the off side and missed. The ball crashed into leg-stump. Johnson was on a hat-trick. But Graeme Swann chipped the hat-trick ball over mid-wicket over three runs.

 

Bell then played an upper-cut to a bouncer from Johnson and got a four over the slip cordon. Bell then drove Lyon through the covers for another four.

 

Swann slashed one from Johnson wide of off-stump and edged it to Clarke in the slips. The Australian captain took a brilliant catch high to his right. That was Johnson’s fifth wicket. Next ball, James Anderson got bowled through the gap between his bat and pads.

 

Johnson gave a long stare to Anderson as he went past him while celebrating. Johnson was on a hat-trick again in a matter of a couple of overs. Bell was on strike for the hat-trick ball and nearly gifted a catch to the short extra-cover fielder.

 

Bell then played another upper-cut to a bouncer from Johnson and got a four over the slip cordon. Bell cut a short and wide delivery from Harris through point to get to his half-century. That was his 38th Test half-century. Bell then hit two more fours and before a six off Harris’s over.

 

Monty Panesar got off the mark with a single through cover off Siddle. But after facing a barrage of bouncers from the Australia fast bowlers, Panesar was bowled by Johnson. England were bowled out for 172 as Johnson got seven wickets.

 

Brief scores:

 

Australia 570 for 9 decl. (Chris Rogers 72, Shane Watson 51, Michael Clarke 148, George Bailey 53, Brad Haddin 118, Ryan Harris 55*; Stuart Broad 3 for 98) lead England 172 (Michael Carberry 60, Ian Bell 72*; Mitchell Johnson 7 for 40) by 398 runs.
