Steven Smith was dismissed seven balls after lunch to put England firmly in control on Day Four of the first Ashes Test between England and Australia at Cardiff on Saturday. David Warner’s dismissal for 52 at the stroke of lunch had already tipped the scales in England’s favour, but getting the No. 1 ranked Test batsman ensured that Australia are now firmly behind in the contest. Earlier, Chris Rogers was the first man to be dismissed when he edged Stuart Broad to Ian Bell at slip. Live Scorecard: England (ENG) vs Australia (AUS) Ashes 2015 1st Test at Cardiff, Day 3

Warner looked in much discomfort in the first hour of play. He was on 17 off 41 balls at one stage before exploding against Moeen Ali, hitting him for a back-to-back six and four. That over from proved Moeen proved to be the spark that Warner and Australia needed. They managed to find a boundary off virtually every over after that. However, Moeen Ali — who had gone for 22 off his first two overs — managed to breach Warner’s defence, getting him out LBW for 52 at the stroke of lunch to ensure England ended the session on top.
