“No regrets at all”, was what Stokes said after the defeat

The first match of the prestigious Ashes Test series was played at Birmingham. On the final day of the match (Tuesday 20 June), Australia defeated England by 2 wickets. Australia’s captain Pat Cummins led the team to victory with a befitting captaincy. At the same time, England also had a chance to win this match. However, they could not dismiss the last two Australian batsmen. At that time, England captain Ben Stokes has backed his decision and the team.

After challenging Australia by 281 runs for victory, England’s bowlers reduced Australia to 227 for 8. However, after that, Cummins and Lion formed a partnership to give Australia victory. Speaking at the award ceremony after the match, England captain Stokes said,

“Proud of our bowlers taking the match to the end. It is because of such matches that the popularity of Test cricket has survived. If you ask about the decision to declare the first innings, I don’t regret it. It was an opportunity to dominate Australia. It is sometimes easy to get a victim in the last twenty minutes. However, that did not happen. Australia played better than us.”

Considering this match, England declared their innings on 393 runs on the first day on the strength of Joe Root’s century. Australia then responded to reach 386 with Khawaja’s century. England could score 273 runs in their second innings. Australia completed the challenge of 281 runs for victory by retaining 2 wickets.
