Australia captain Steve Smith is demanding improvement from his batsmen after a shaky second innings in Adelaide

Before the Ashes action moves to Perth, let's have a look at the hits and misses from the second Test.

That scenario relied heavily on England skipper Joe Root, on 67, posting a big score on day five at the Adelaide Oval. Cummins claimed one wicket.

Left-arm quick Mitchell Starc mopped up the tail to take five for 88, his eighth five-wicket haul in tests, but Hazlewood will also share the plaudits after his early intervention.

Steve Smith will no doubt still face questions over his decision not to enforce the follow on two days ago, but for all but the most stubborn doubters, this victory ought to have vindicated the Aussie captain.

"I don't think there's real need to panic", he said. "You want to stamp your authority on the game and to get the early wickets was good, particularly the captain Joe Root", Hazlewood told Grandstand after play.

While Root was batting England's hopes lingered of bringing off a record run chase of 345 at Adelaide Oval.

"The way we went about things in the second innings proved we are still massively in this series - we have shown we can outperform Australia but we haven't done it for five days".

Massive Chinese air drills warn United States 'not to provoke Pyongyang'
Li Jie , a Chinese military expert based in Beijing, said the announcement was targeting the United States and South Korea. In addition, ten fighters F-35B will take part in joint exercises with the United States air bases in Japan.

"It's obviously very disappointing [to lose]", added the 26-year-old, who snicked Josh Hazlewood behind from the 17th ball on day five.

Jonny Bairstow offered some resistance with a well-made 36 before he was bowled by Starc as England were skittled out for 233, 120 runs short of the target.

The result means that Australia has a flawless record in day-night Tests, having prevailed in all three of the pink-ball matches they have played in Adelaide, as well as the Test they won against Pakistan in Brisbane last summer.

Australia dismissed England for 227 on Monday but decided against sending them back in to bat despite holding a 215-run first innings lead.

Marsh, whose ton proved to be the differentiator between the two teams, remained unbeaten on 126 as Australia declared their innings on 442/8.

The winning moment for Australia!
