Australia vs England, Ashes first Test live score and updates:England captain Joe Root won the toss and decided to bat at the Gabba in Brisbane and the tourists got off to the worst possible start as Mitchell Starc clean bowled Rory Burns for a first-ball duck. A scorching half volley that sneaked past Burns’ legs and clattered into the stumps. Josh Hazlewood gave the hosts the second breakthrough by sending back number 3 Dawid Malan. England have had a dismal run in the past two Ashes series in Australia and they would want to change that and take the ‘Urn’ back. The onus will be on the shoulders of captain Root, star all-rounder Ben Stokes and a strong battery of fast bowlers. As far as Australia are concerned, it’s another another fresh start under Pat Cummins’ leadership – Australia’ first full-time seam-bowling captain in their history.
