England captain Andrew Strauss said he wants an improved batting display as his team gear up for the second Ashes Test in Adelaide on Friday.

Despite scoring 517-1 in the second innings of the drawn first Test at the Gabba, England were bowled out for 260 in the first innings.

Strauss, who is expected to name an unchanged side, said: “We don’t want a repeat of that.”

Australia have axed Mitchell Johnson, but Michael Clarke is fit to play.

Paceman Johnson was hit for 170 runs in the first Test without taking a wicket and is likely to be replaced by Doug Bollinger or Ryan Harris.
