Australia took firm control of the second Ashes test when an unbeaten century from Shaun Marsh pushed the hosts to 442 for eight declared in their first innings on the second day of the day-night contest Sunday.Marsh had earlier put the hosts on the front foot with his fifth test century, a 231-ball vindication of the decision by the Australian selectors to hand the 34-year-old his eighth test recall.Marsh had to grit it out at times as England produced a much improved bowling performance after a disappointing day one and had the Decision Review System to thank for a life after initially being given out lbw to James Anderson on 29 .Marsh put on 85 with Paine as the two most controversial selections in the Australia squad for the first two tests frustrated England before the wicketkeeper holed out for 57 – a third test half century coming seven years after his second.
