Australia vs England, Third Ashes Test, day two in Perth

ENGLAND showed impressive tenacity to launch a late fightback on day one of the Third Test. Day two of the final Ashes test at the Waca begins after the opening day of play was overshadowed by an on-field DRS controversy surrounding the dismissal of Mark Stoneman and a concerning off-field controversy where reports claimed match-fixing agents boasted about their ability to fix international cricket fixtures including the Ashes and the Big Bash. A hot day with a top of 30C is going to make life difficult for the bowlers in Perth when play resumes at 1.30pm (AEDT).
