Stuart Broad sent Edgbaston into raptures by continuing his stranglehold over David Warner then snaring Marnus Labuschagne first ball as England made a dream start to day two of the first Ashes Test.

Warner endured a torrid time against Broad in the 2019 series, dismissed seven times in 10 innings, and the Australia opener was sent on his way again by his bete-noire after dragging on to his stumps.

The noise went up another level when Broad found Labuschagne’s outside edge and Jonny Bairstow produced an excellent catch diving to his right as Australia slid to 29-2 on Saturday morning in response to the hosts’ 393-8 declared.

The Ashes 1st Test Day 1 Highlights: A superb century from Joe Root, his first against Australia since 2015, helped England race to 393-8 before declaring on the opening day of the first Ashes test, a move that did not bear fruit as the tourists held firm to finish on 14-0 at stumps. In a move typical of the unconventional, attacking approach adopted by skipper Ben Stokes and coach Brendon McCullum, England gave themselves four overs to bowl at Australia on Friday, without any success. After an aggressive England enjoyed a positive start with the bat in Birmingham, the key wickets of Stokes and firebrand Harry Brook left the home side on 176-5 and staring at the possibility of being skittled out quickly.

Lunch: Stokes claimed the breakthrough, the one England wanted more than anything. Smith has departed for just 16.

‘Cheerio, cheerio’ sung the crowd, former captain Alastair Cook on commentary was in disbelief that the Australian has missed the ball, but he had to go.

Smith reviewed the decision, after the umpire took a while before lifting his finger, Australia reduced to 78 for three as the sun is literally and metaphorically shining down on England at Edgbaston.

Broad’s two wickets in two balls to dismiss his old rival Warner and then the ICC world number one ranked Test batter Labuschagne came in the first hour of play and it has undoubtedly been England’s morning.

Ahead of the series, there were a lot of discussions surrounding the state of Stokes, or more specifically, Stokes’ left knee, but he brought himself on to bowl towards the end of the first session, and after a first ball no-ball, claimed the key wicket.
