Josh Hazlewood snuffed out England's hopes of a remarkable second Ashes test triumph with two wickets in the first 16 balls of the final day as Australia wrapped up a 120-run victory in brilliant sunshine at Adelaide Oval on Wednesday.

Nightwatchman Chris Woakes was out to the second ball of the day, caught behind off Hazlewood for five.

Spinner Nathan Lyon told Channel Nine the team is full of confidence heading into the third Test in Perth next week.

The result means that Australia has a flawless record in day-night Tests, having prevailed in all three of the pink-ball matches they have played in Adelaide, as well as the Test they won against Pakistan in Brisbane last summer.

Batting collapses have always been a hallmark of England woe in the Ashes and this series has been no different, with a solitary Australian century enough in both Brisbane and Adelaide.

Left-arm quick Mitchell Starc mopped up the tail to take five for 88, his eighth five-wicket haul in tests, but Hazlewood will also share the plaudits after his early intervention.

But Hazlewood enticed a bottom edge and wicketkeeper Tim Paine did the rest to the unrestrained glee of the Australian team.

Meghan Markle's Leggy Look Might Have Broken Queen Elizabeth's Royal Fashion Rules
Harry and Cressida split from each other in 2014 after she and Prince Charles' youngest son began dating two years earlier. However on this occasion, the bride-to-be was absent and thought to be at home at Nottingham Cottage at Kensington Palace.

Root, however, simply walked from the field after edging behind.

"I don't think there's real need to panic", he said.

"I thought the way we responded with ball and bat in the second innings was outstanding, especially the way we played last night (Tuesday) in those conditions".

"We're still massively in the series".

For England, James Anderson took five-wicket but the contribution went in vain as the batting line-up failed to perform on the concluding day.

Starc had Stuart Broad caught behind for eight and finished off the Test just before tea bowling Jonny Bairstow for 36.

Steve Smith and Shaun Marsh have shown the way to three figures with patient knocks that routinely look beyond Joe Root's men and Bayliss hopes to find a winning formula in time for the WACA, where Australia will have designs on the urn returning.
