ADELAIDE, Australia, Dec. 5 (UPI) -- England collapsed under a bowling onslaught led by Shane Warne as Australia snatched a six-wicket win in the second cricket test in Adelaide.
The Australian attack battered England's batsmen in their second innings on the final day of play when the score went from 2/69 to all out for 129.
Warne took four wickets for 49 runs, supported by Glenn McGrath with 2/15, Brett Lee 2/35 and Stuart Clark 1/22.
It was an amazing turnaround by the Australians when a draw appeared certain. The Aussies had made 513 in their first innings in reply to England's 551 for six declared.
After England's disastrous second appearance at bat, Australia set about the bowling in the chase for the 168 runs needed for victory.
Opener Justin Langer made only 7 and his partner Mathew Hayden got to 18 before Aussie Skipper Ricky Ponting and Michael Hussey came together to steady the innings. Ponting made 49 and Hussey was 61 not out with Michael Clarke 21 not out when the 168 came up with 19 balls to spare.
The win made it 2-0 for Australia in the five-game test series.
