The Australian team got off to a good start in the second match of the Ashes 2023. The match begins on Wednesday (June 28) at the historic Lord’s Stadium. At the end of the first day, Australia reached 339 for 5. Three Australian batsmen scored half-centuries on the first day.
On the first day of the Lord’s Test, the Australian team lost the toss and had to come in to bat first. Opener David Warner failed in the first Test. But this time he scored a personal half-century giving the team a good start. Warner scored 66 off 88 balls. Middle-order Steve Smith and wicketkeeper-batsman Travis Head () also scored individual fifties. Head lost his wicket with 77 off 73 balls. When the day’s play ended, Smith was on 85* off 149 balls, while wicketkeeper Alex Carey was steady on the pitch with 11* off 34 balls.
England’s performance on the other hand saw Joe Root and Josh Tong take two wickets each on the first day. Fast bowler Ollie Robinson took one wicket. The wickets of opener Usman Khawaja (17) and David Warner (66) got Josh Tang, who is making his debut in the series. Tangal has been included in the playing XI due to Moeen Ali’s injury. Root’s spin was credited with the wickets of Travis Head (77) and Cameron Green, who set the game. Ollie Robinson’s penetrating bowling narrowly missed Marnal Labuschagne’s century. Labuchen lost his wicket for 47 runs. (Australia scored 339 for 5 on the first day of the Lord’s Test)
