England back up against the wall in Adelaide

6:16 pm on 8 December 2013

Two quick wickets before tea have the Australian cricketers back in control of the second Ashes Test against England on the fourth day in Adelaide.

Kevin Pietersen went for 53, breaking up his 111-run partnership with Joe Root, which looked like it could save the Test for the tourists.

Then Ian Bell fell for six.

At tea, England are 143 for 4 in their second innings. They trail by 388 runs.
