Australia pass 400-run mark against England on day two at Lord's

Australia continue to frustrate England despite losing two wickets at lunch on day two of the second Ashes Test at Lord's.

Australia have continued to pile on the runs despite losing two wickets at lunch on day two of the second Ashes Test against England at Lord's.

Chris Rogers and captain Michael Clarke have been dismissed for the tourists, who have moved onto 424-3 after the morning session.

Rogers and Steve Smith carried on their dominant partnership from the opening day before the former was finally sent back to the pavilion for a career-best 173 with almost half an hour played.

The opener had added 15 runs to his overnight score when he was clean bowled by Stuart Broad, ending his 284-run partnership with Smith - the highest ever partnership by an Aussie pair at Lord's.

Smith soon passed the 150-run mark, but Australia lost another wicket soon after when Michael Clarke was caught by Gary Ballance off the bowling of Mark Wood for just seven.

Adam Voges (24*) and Smith (168*) will return to the crease after lunch.
