England middle-order batsman Joe Root was finally dismissed for 130 on Day Two of Ashes 2015 fourth Test, caught off the bowling of Mitchell Starc, who picks up his fourth wicket of the match. Root resumed on 124 and could add just six runs to his innings. Root fished at a delivery outside off and the ball took the outside edge, which Peter Nevill took without any trouble. This is a good beginning for Australia and they need to pick up a few more wickets in this session if they are to have any chance of saving this match from here.
