Broad dismantles Australia’s batting lineup

In the absence of his new-ball partner James Anderson, Stuart Broad seized the opportunity to step up for his country on the opening day of the Ashes Test series. Broad would have taken a wicket off his first ball when he had David Warner caught down the leg-side but umpire Aleem Dar kept his finger down and England failed to review.

Broad provided England with the best possible start by removing the dangerous Warner and Cameron Bancroft in quick succession leaving the visitors reeling on 17 for 2. 

Tim Paine pulled Broad straight to deep square-leg and the bowler was so full of joyous amazement that he covered his face with his hands.

He finished with figures of 5-86, and he took the final wicket of Steve Smith who was batting on 144.
