Adelaide (Australia) (AFP) - Beleaguered England survived their first full day of resistance Sunday but the prospect of another heavy defeat loomed large heading into the final day of the second Ashes Test in Adelaide. At the close, England were fighting hard at 247 for six with Matt Prior on 31 and Stuart Broad not out 22. They trailed Australia by 284 runs. England had a minor triumph when they passed 200 for the first time in four innings in the series, but defeat looked inevitable after losing the first Gabba Test by 381 runs.
