Catch live scoring action of Day Five of the second Ashes test between England and Australia in Adelaide.

UPDATE: England have captured four wickets for a dream start to the final day of the second Ashes test in Adelaide.

Michael Hussey was the first to fall for Australia when Steven Finn forced him to play a pull shot which sent a top edge to James Anderson at mid-on for 52.

The Hussey dismissal brought Brad Haddin to the crease at 261 for five but the Australian wicketkeeper could only last five overs before he was caught behind off the bowling of James Anderson for 12.

Ryan Harris then fell first ball trapped LBW by Anderson, his second golden duck of the test.

In the following over Graeme Swann took the key wicket of Marcus North, LBW for 22.

That left Australia on 286 for eight still trailing England by 89 runs.

England need two more wickets to take a 1-0 lead in the Ashes.
