Australia declare on 254-2

Australia declare on 254-2 on the fourth day of the second Ashes Test at Lord's, leaving England with a target of 509 to win.

Australia have declared on 254-2 on the fourth day of the second Ashes Test at Lord's.

The hosts, who were bowled out for 312 on day three, require 509 to win the second test after Australia captain Michael Clarke called his side back in while batting alongside Mitchell Marsh.

Australia lost Chris Rogers when he was forced to retire after suffering spells of dizziness, and it was David Warner who impressed with the bat as he recorded a knock of 83.

Warner's hopes a century were dashed when Alastair Cook caught a delivery from Moeen Ali before the England bowler dismissed Steve Smith on 58.
