2nd test - Adelaide - Day 2
Cracking day of cricket, though, thankfully, I missed Strauss's dismissal.
This is what the beeb had to say:-
Alastair Cook hit an unbeaten 136 as England built a 72-run lead on day two of the second Test against Australia.
After his 235 not out in the first Test, Cook took his series aggregate to 438 with a chanceless knock as England reached 317-2 at the close.
The tourists made a bad start to the day when Andrew Strauss was bowled by Doug Bollinger playing no stroke.
But Jonathan Trott (78) and Kevin Pietersen (85 not out) helped Cook put them in a commanding position. http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport2/hi/cricket/9256870.stm
It was blistering hot yesterday - temps are forecast to be lower today with possible thunderstorms looming.
