Cricket - Australia declare with 530 lead

England needed to bat out the final two days in Adelaide to save the second Test, after Australia chose to declare overnight.

The tourists were set a notional 531 to win.

But realistically, they faced a monumental challenge to somehow escape with a stalemate and therefore remain just 1-0 down heading to Perth next week.

The threat of a deterioration in the weather doubtless made up Australia's mind, to declare on 132 for three in their second innings - with David Warner unbeaten on 83.
