AUS vs ENG 1st Test Day 1: England forced to kneel, Pat Cummins said – everything went according to plan

Australia captain Pat Cummins said on Wednesday that his first day as captain in Test cricket went according to plan. He said he was proud of the way his teammates bowled out England for just 147 on the first day of the first Ashes Test at the Gabba. For Australia, Cummins took 5/38 most wickets in 13.1 overs.

Became the first fast bowler to take a five-wicket haul in an Ashes Test, as Bob Willis did in 1982/83. The wickets of Ben Stokes, Haseeb Hameed, Ollie Robinson, Mark Wood and Chris Woakes are included in the taking of five wickets. Cummins said, ‘It was great. So far everything has been according to plan. I am really proud of all the players. But, the rain spoiled the first day’s play.

Talking about doing well after losing the toss, Cummins said, ‘We were probably going to bat after losing the toss. But we got the bowling and we took full advantage of it. When asked about his comments about the pitch, Cummins said that the Gabba’s pitch is much better. You always do well on the morning of the first day. After lunch, there was a slight bounce in the pitch here.

Cummins is happy with the good performance of his fast bowler Mitchell Starc. He has started the Ashes well, bowling Rory Burns on the very first ball of the series. According to Cummins, ‘He was feeling well during the spell. He has said that I have bowled well against Joe Root in the past, for which I got the reward by getting other players out.
