Australia 70+ 149-1 (29.4 Overs) beat England 70+ 148-8 (50 Overs) by 9 wickets

England were heavily defeated by a much superior Australian side to go two down in the five match series. England batted first on the premier Geelong Cricket Club's ground at Kardinia Park.
Pearce and Swain put on 26 without major alarms until Swain was LBW for 15. Pearse followed, again LBW for 18 with the score on 40, and then a complete collapse followed to leave the innings in total disarray at 6 for 48. With nothing to lose, Baxter (27) and Corke (21) rebuilt the innings with a stand of 49, with Smith (15 n o) and Clarke (23 n o) putting on an unbroken 46 to take England to a close on 8 for 148. The wickets were shared between Kasputtis, Lovel and Edmunds.
To stay in the game England needed early wickets, and Spindler obliged by dismissing Stackpoole for 6. Petherick came to the wicket and continued where he had left off in Adelaide, making 74 not out with Berenger finishing on 50 not out, as Australia cruised to a nine wicket win in less than 30 overs. England must now show great improvement to have any hope of retaining the Ashes against a very competent and professional Australia team, who are proving to be strong in all departments.

Mike Swain (Cpt) 34, Grahame Corke 2-18

South Australia batted first on a hot day in Adelaide on a pitch that proved difficult to score on with a slow outfield. Spindler again bowled well, this time with Corke, each only conceding 18 runs in 9 overs, with Spindler taking one wicket and Corke two.
Clarke and Smith also bowled tightly against the impressive Reid who retired on 50. A late flurry of runs took South Australia to 127 in 45 overs. England found runs just as difficult to score, and lost two wickets for 22 after 11 overs. and when Swain was out for 34 with the score on 74 the game was in the balance. Baxter was joined by Smith and the two then built a match winning partnership of 54 as they took the score past South Australia without further alarms.
