Cummins bowls this one on the off side on a length, Archer however tries to flick it towards the leg side as he shuffles across the wicket.

  • 6:45 PM IST

    Josh Hazlewood to Joe Denly. out, OUT! Caught behind! Hazlewood is the breakthrough provider once again. Lovely, lovely delivery. Hazlewood lands it on a length and around off, it shapes away late. Denly does not adjust to the movement as he defends inside the line. The ball kisses the outside edge and goes into the mitts of the keeper. A much-needed wicket for the visitors as this partnership was really going nicely. End of the 66-run stand though. Early wicket for Australia after the break. Also, replays show later on that Denly did not have a good stride forward, maybe he was worried about the short ball which he was quite uncomfortable against.

Live score: England vs Australia, Ashes 2019 2nd Test Day 2: Australia 30/1 at stumps, trail England by 228 runs

Hello and welcome to our live coverage of day two of the second Test of the 2019 Ashes between England and Australia at the Lord’s Cricket Ground, London on Thursday. The start to the second Ashes 2019 Test between England and Australia was off on a wrong footing as constant rain washed out the opening day at Lord’s. But with a slightly better weather forecast on Thursday, we should be able to get an entire day’s play.

Day 1 washed out

Jofra Archer received his England Test cap but was still to make his debut as rain saw the first day of Wednesday’s second Ashes 2019 match against Australia abandoned without a ball bowled at a soaking wet Lord’s.

Chris Jordan, a Sussex team-mate, presented Archer with the cap in England’s pre-match huddle ahead of a revised toss at 3:00pm local time (1400 GMT) — only for further rain to delay the start once again.
