Michael Clarke said on Saturday night, that the loss in Cardiff was the kick up the backside Australia needed. After Day 1 here at Lord’s, England will be thinking maybe the kick was too good, because Australia were a class above yesterday, with Steven Smith and Chris Rogers stealing the show.

Welcome to our coverage of the 2nd Day of the 2nd Test at Lord’s.

Australia will resume at 1/337 when play resumes at 8pm AEST, but before we get there, let’s hear from the heroes of Day 1.

7:53pm | Yes, a brilliant performance from Chris Rogers and Steven Smith yesterday, and they’ll be looking to go on with it, because as Mark Taylor said to Samuel Ferris on Cricket Australia TV before the match, one good day can turn an Ashes Series around.

7:56pm | We heard earlier from Steven Smith, who questioned England’s tactics yesterday, and as much as it didn’t even look like England were going to take a wicket, Jimmy Anderson defended those tactics when he faced the media last night.

8pm | Day 2 – Morning Session
Australia 1/337 (90)
Chris Rogers 158* (282) | Steven Smith 129* (217)

Hello again from Lord’s… the second day of the second test… the duo at the crease only need to score two runs in order to surpass the biggest ever partnership for an Australian pair at Lord’s… at the moment, that record belongs to Mark Taylor and Michael Slater, who shared a 260 run partnership here 22 years ago, but they might not hold that record for much longer.

Brett Lee had the honour of ringing the famous bell today, and we’re ready to go. Jimmy Anderson will bowl to Chris Rogers, and in the Commentary Box, it’s good evening to David Lloyd and Ian Healy!

ROLLING COVERAGE SUSPENDED!
‪#‎Ashes‬ | ‪#‎ENGvAUS‬ | ‪#‎Cricket‬ | ‪#‎ZakSportsAU‬

Hi everybody.

I regret to inform you all, that due to a change of circumstances very much beyond my control, our LIVE, ROLLING coverage of the 2015 Investec Ashes Series has been SUSPENDED until further notice.

In place of the rolling coverage will be a daily report for each day of the Test Matches, which will be posted at around 6:30am AEST each morning.

Again, we apologise for this and the inconvenience it may cause… there’s nothing we can do, and if there were, we’d be doing it.

Believe you me, no one is as frustrated about the current situation than I am, and we hope to be able to return to rolling coverage sooner rather than later!

For the moment… it’s goodbye!
