The first day of the Ashes 2019 was filled with a lot of excitement, drama and sheer commitment. The historic series started with England getting on top of Australia in the first two sessions and restricting them to just 123-8.
However, Steve Smith refused to give up as he single-handedly took Australia out of trouble by scoring a magnificent 144.
The first day of the Ashes 2019 also saw some poor umpiring as the fans lashed out at the standard of umpiring in this all-important series.
Stuart Broad also registered another 5-wicket haul as he dismantled the Aussie batting line-up with some impeccable lines and lengths.
