An entertaining day began with Hampshire on top and forcing Malan and Voges
to battle hard for supremacy on a pitch on which facing the new ball was a testing proposition in early overcast and chilly conditions.
Middlesex captain Adam Voges
suffered a suspected concussion at the Rose Bowl after being hit on the head by a throw while in the field against Hampshire.
He bowled 15 tidy overs before he started to drop short in his last three before tea, when Adam Voges
hit him for five fours.
It was Ambrose's maiden first-class wicket and Voges
was trying to reach a hundred before stumps were drawn.
It's not easy to be in the shoes of Adam Voges
had made seven when he shouldered arms to Doug Bracewell, delivering the final over of the first day, and was bowled.
Trent Boult, Southee (if fit) and the progressive Matt Henry form a dangerous pace attack who could take early wickets against the undercooked Aussies so Adam Voges
looks overpriced at 6-1 to top-score from the middle-order.
CENTURIES from Steve Smith and Adam Voges
helped Australia build a 193-run lead after New Zealand's Ross Taylor had broken a 111-year record on day four of the second Test in Perth.
Australia pushed on to set an imposing first innings score - Adam Voges
scored 41 with help from Mitchell Marsh (34), Steve Smith (27) and Peter Nevill (19).
Smith, who made 143, was the cornerstone of Australia's 481 all out, with Adam Voges
(76) and number nine Mitchell Starc (58) also making contrasting half-centuries on day two of this fifth Ashes Test.
England, however, removed both openers and captain Michael Clarke for 15 to expose the fragile Australian middle order before Smith batted with calm authority in a partnership with Adam Voges
that put their side in control of the match.
But at the ground where England last lost the Ashes on home soil 14 years ago, Adam Voges
ensured an innings victory would not quite come inside two days.
