Background: England rolled Australia for 268 on day 1, and looked to get a lead.
How did it start: Strauss and Cook looking nice and well set.
Where did it all go wrong for Australia?: A slight wobble when batting (although this was steadied). Worrying lack of form for Ponting though.
Where did it all go right for Australia?: Johnson's six wickets, and steady batting giving them a 200 lead after 2 days.
Where did it all go wrong for England?: Collapsing.
Where did it all go right for England?: Strauss and Cook started well. Bell appears to have some steel about him and batted well.
Who won each session?: Morning - Australia. Afternoon - Australia. Evening - Evens (but in the context of the game, Australia).
Who won the day?: Straya.
Who's winning the game?: Australia
Crumb of comfort?: Once a batsman gets in, there are runs on offer. England may need this knowledge second time up.
Shot of the day: Steve Finn turning Johnson off his hips for one. Controlled.
Ball of the day: Johnson to Trott / Pietersen / Collingwood / Tremlett.
Celebration of the day: Haddin's motions to the crowd. Close second to Finn's "shush" to someone.
Man of the day: Mitchell Johnson. England finally seeing him at his best.
And finally... Ashes Oddity: Steve Finn outscoring Kevin Pietersen, with a strike rate of 100. Doesn't happen very often!
