Australia vs England, Ashes 1st Test Day 2:Travis Head smashed a hundred to put Australia on top as Australia ended Day 2 of the ongoing first Ashes Test against England at a score of 343/7 and a lead of 196 runs at The Gabba in Brisbane on Thursday.  Head’s century came after Ollie Robinson led England’s fightback with three wickets to his name earlier in the day. David Warner posted a knock of 94 to help his side overhaul England’s first innings total in the post-lunch session after Australia lost their first wicket early in the day. Marnus Labuschangne also scored a half-century and was dismissed for 74 in the day’s second session after he combined with Warner to put Australia on top. In the morning session, England bowled a total of 31 overs. After bundling out England for 147, Australia got off to a bad start as opener Marcus Harris (3) failed to leave a mark with the bat and he was sent back to the pavilion in the sixth over by Robinson. Labuschagne then joined Warner in the middle and the duo kept on ticking the scoreboard along, ensuring that the hosts entered the second session of the day with nine wickets in hand. Warner also got a reprieve in the first over bowled by Ben Stokes as he was clean bowled off a no-ball and the left-handed batter survived. (SCORECARD)
