Australia beat England by nine wickets in the first Ashes Test at Gabba in Brisbane to take a 1-0 lead in the five-match series. England’s batting order collapsed to a low score in both innings of the match. The return of England talisman Ben Stokes to the squad did not make an impact in this match. England did not place their veteran pacers James Anderson and Stuart Broad in the playing XI in the first Test. Former Australia captain Ricky Ponting responded. He said he was opposed to the decision. England played with three pacers, one spinner, Ali Robinson, Mark Wood and Chris Vokes. However Jack Leach is the lone spinner in the team. Leach was unable to make much of an impact in the first inning. “If they did not prepare them (Brad, Anderson) for Adelaide, I can not believe why they were not selected,” Ponting told Cricket.com.
“Stuart Broad and James Anderson are better bowlers in Australia than Chris Vokes. One of those two has to play. It is possible to play only one of Broad or Anderson in Adelaide. Said the former Australian cricketer. He took 1,156 Test wickets between Anderson and Brad. They thus became the most successful bowling pair in world cricket. Travis Head and David Warner were the top scorers for Australia. Head scored 152 off just 148 balls. Warner scored 94 as Australia scored 425 in the first innings. Joe Root and David Malan led England to victory on Day 3. Faced the Australian bowlers. Spinner Nathan Lyon hit the English players. England were all out for 297.
