Australia won the toss and decided to bat first, at day one of the first of the five test match series against England. The English bowlers dismissed the Australian top order in no time. The Australian batting innings was in total disarray at 128 for the loss of eight. Thanks to a high class performance by Steven smith, who didn’t panic when wickets were tumbling around him. It was he and the tail-ender, Peter Siddle, who were involved in a classical and very determined test match partnership, which retrieved the lost momentum for Australia. Australia put a very decent first innings total of 284.
Stuart Broad was the pick of the bowlers for England. He picked five wickets, Woakes picked three. England was 10 for the loss of no wicket at the end of day one at Birmingham.
