The return of English bowler Stuart Broad appeared to be causing the Aussies problems from the get go at Adelaide Oval.

With Broad back in the attack, David Warner somehow survived a first-ball LBW scare.

It then took Australia three overs to get a run on the board

Harris also narrowly avoided an early shower, calling for the DRS to intervene when he was given out for another LBW.

The decision was ultimately overturned, but Harris would be sent packing not long after.

When Broad steamed in and unleashed a peach of a short ball, Harris took the bait and his wild wing edged it down the leg side.

Seeing it late, wicketkeeper Buttler dived to his right and threw a glove out to take an incredible catch.

The acrobatic effort earned the praise of those in the Fox Sports commentary box.

"It's a stunning catch from Jos Buttler... Superman, to his right," Isa Guha said.

Former Australian wicketkeeper Adam Gilchrist echoed his colleague's comments, adding: "You'll go a long way to see many better catches by a wicketkeeper."

For England, it's a golden start in Adelaide as they look to redeem themselves following their complete and utter hammering in the opening Test at The Gabba.

Meanwhile, the Aussies will now look to fellow opener Warner and first drop Marnus Labuschagne to steer the ship.
