Australia vs England, Ashes first Test live score and updates:England’s second session started as badly as the first as Australian captain Pat Cummins sent back opener Haseeb Hameed with the tourists reeling at 60/5. Hameed and Ollie Pope had shown great fighting spirit to take England into lunch on Day 1 at 59/4. Earlier, England captain Joe Root won the toss and decided to bat at the Gabba in Brisbane, but the tourists got off to the worst possible start as Mitchell Starc clean bowled Rory Burns for a first-ball duck. Josh Hazlewood gave the hosts the second breakthrough by sending back number 3 Dawid Malan and shocked the English fans by sending back captain Root for a duck. Cummins also joined the party as he sent back the dangerous Ben Stokes to give Australia its fourth wicket with just 29 runs on board. England have had a dismal run in the past two Ashes series in Australia and they would want to change that and take the ‘Urn’ back. The onus will be on the shoulders of captain Root, star all-rounder Ben Stokes and a strong battery of fast bowlers. As far as Australia are concerned, it’s another another fresh start under Pat Cummins’ leadership – Australia’ first full-time seam-bowling captain in their history.
