England opener Rory Burns' Ashes series has gone from bad to worse, with the 31-year-old dropping a straightforward catch at second slip.

Ollie Robinson managed to collect the edge of Australian batsman David Warner as England were chasing their second wicket of the day, with the ball landing in the lap of Burns before being fumble and soon hitting the turf.

The missed chance further added the travelling nation's frustrations, with Warner having been bowled by Ben Stokes earlier in the day before having the wicket overturned due to a front foot no-ball.

Warner has since gone on to raise the bat after being dropped on 48, with Australia at 1-114 when Burns' blunder occurred.

The dropped catch also mounted further pressure onto Burns' stocks, with the Englishman having amassed a golden duck on day one of the summer in being bowled by Mitchell Starc with the first ball of the series.

Warner and Marcus Labuschagne remain at the crease, with both Australian batsmen having surpassed 50 runs.
