The visitors collapsed to a nine-wicket defeat in the opening Test in Brisbane as England suffered the familiar feeling of coming away from The Gabba empty-handed.
James Anderson and Stuart Broad have been recalled to England’s line-up and captain Joe Root will hope they can offer some inspiration with the pink ball.

What has England captain Joe Root said?
“It doesn’t feel like previous tours leaving Brisbane where we have been battered and completely on the wrong end of the result.
“I think we’re leaving Brisbane with a slightly different perspective. There is a lot more optimism. I thought our bowlers did a brilliant job and created a lot of chances, but when you don’t take them it makes it really hard.”
