AUS vs ENG 1st Test Day 1 Stumps: England all out for 147 – Joe Root’s decision to win the toss and bat first at the Gabba, Brisbane seems to have backfired. Pat Cummins led Australia from the front with a five-wicket haul. The visitors were all out for just 147 runs in their first innings. Meanwhile, Rain and bad light curtailed the final session of Day 1 of the ongoing first Ashes Test between England and Australia here at the Gabba, Brisbane. Only 50.1 overs were possible on opening day.  Follow Insidesport.IN for all Ashes 2021-22 LIVE updates. 

England lost early wickets in form of skipper Root and Ben Stokes in the opening session. The pattern continued during the session innings. The visitors suffered blows in form of Haseeb Hameed, Jos Buttler and Ollie Pope, leaving England in tatters. Australia pacers Pat Cummins, Josh Hazlewood and Mitchell Starc dominated throughout the innings.

Only 50.1 overs were bowled on the opening day and it saw England struggle. Australia’s newly-appointed Test skipper Pat Cummins bagged five wickets as Australia dominated the second session on Day 1. Resuming the second session at 59/4, England was given a body blow straight away as Australia skipper Pat Cummins got the better of opening batter Haseeb Hameed (25) and this brought Jos Buttler to the middle.

The right-handed Buttler played a counter-attacking knock, however, his 39-run knock finally came to an end in the 41st over after being dismissed by Mitchell Starc.

Soon after, the set batter Ollie Pope (35) also departed after top-edging a ball bowled by Cameron Green and England was reduced to 118/7 in the 44th over of the day. The Three Lions’ innings went further into a slump after Ollie Robinson (0) was sent back to the pavilion by Pat Cummins.

Earlier, Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood and Pat Cummins got among the wickets as England was left reeling on Day 1. At the lunch break, England’s score was 59/4. A total of 26 overs were bowled in the opening session of the first Test.
