Team England was hammered for a lot of runs on day one of the second Test match against Australia at the Adelaide Oval. England failed to produce a spectacular performance on day one of the day-night Test as Australian batters caused carnage on the field. 

Despite the poor show by the ball, one Englishman who stood out among the rest has to be Jos Buttler. The wicketkeeper-batter shocked the entire cricket fraternity by taking a splendid catch in the eight over to give England their first breakthrough, as shown on many online cricket betting sites in indian rupees

Batting first, Australia got off to a slow start with the willow as they could score just four runs in the first seven overs. With the momentum on their side, the seamer Stuart Broad stuck early in the innings to give the first shock to the host team.

On the third ball of the eighth over, Broad bowled a short delivery to the Australian opening batter Marcus Harris. The opener misjudged the ball and he tried to play the pull shot but ended up edging the bat.

The ball traveled towards the keeper and Jos Buttler was quick in his reflexes as he made a quick dive to successfully collect the ball in his gloves. Buttler made a dive towards his right and he was fully horizontal to the ground when he caught the ball. 

The brilliant catch by the English decorated wicketkeeper made a lot of heads turn in the cricket fraternity. It won’t be wrong to say that Buttler has already taken the catch of the Ashes 2021-22.

Here’s the video of Jos Buttler’s catch:

The insane stuff by Buttler resulted in Marcus Harris walking back to the pavilion at a poor score of three runs off 28 balls. Meanwhile, this was also the first wicket for Stuart Broad in the Ashes 2021-22.

Broad was omitted from the playing XI of the first Test match at The Gabba in Brisbane. ECB decided to rest their two main pacers namely Stuart Broad and James Anderson. The decision didn’t yield a good result for the visitors as they suffered a loss by nine wickets.

Coming to the action on day one of the second Test, Australia continued their terrific show with the willow to take a lead in the match. Opting to bat first, the hosts racked up a score of 221 runs on the scoreboard while losing just two wickets.

David Warner was the star for the team as he played a blistering knock of 95 runs off 167 balls. However, his innings came to an end during the 65th over as he gave his wicket to Ben Stokes. Apart from Warner, Marnus Labuschagne also made headlines.

The batter hammered 95 runs while facing 275 balls. He will be hoping to continue his assaults on day two too along with skipper Steve Smith who is playing at 18 off 71.
