Half-ton for Steve Smith; Australia cross 175-mark

Pennews

After an initial jolt by the England pace attack, Australia wriggled out of a big collapse through the partnership between Steve Smith and Alex Carey. But still, Australia are struggling with 175 for 7.

Steve Smith has made a half-century and still on crease with 68. Alex Carey made a patient stand to build a partnership and later was caught by substitute Vince off Adil Rashid. Alex Carey scored 46 off 70 balls including four boundaries.

Glen Maxwell also helped a bit to raise the score by adding 22 runs. Aussies cricket fans were disappointed with the poor performance by Marcus Stoinis (0), Mitchell Starc(0) and Pat Cummins (6).
