Ben Duckett led England’s response with 98 as the hosts fought back with the bat against Australia on day two of the second men’s Ashes Test at Lord’s.
The Australians were eventually dismissed for 416 on the morning of day two, with Steve Smith going on to make 110 before becoming Josh Tongue’s third victim of their first innings. England openers Zak Crawley and Duckett then saw the hosts through to 13-0 at lunch.
The pair went on to compile an opening stand of 91 before Crawley was stumped off Nathan Lyon’s bowling two runs shy of his half-century, but Duckett went on to pass that milestone before tea only to fall agonisingly short of what would have been his third Test ton.
Another half-century partnership between Harry Brook (45 not out) and Ben Stokes (17 not out) then helped England to 278-4 at the close, trailing by 138 runs. Meanwhile, Australia were left waiting on the fitness of spinner Lyon, who was helped from the field after picking up a calf injury in the evening session.
