Australia went into tea at 145 for 2 on Day 1 of the fourth Ashes Test. After going wicketless in the morning session, England removed both openers. However, David Warner had done the damage before James Anderson made him his 100th Australian wicket. At the crease are Steven Smith (5*) and Usman Khawaja (10*).

Tom Curran would have had his maiden Test wicket had he not overstepped. Warner was on 99 when Curran gave him a reprieve. He reached his 21st hundred off the next delivery, going past Virat Kohli’s tally. In the process, Warner also became the 14th Australian to 6,000 runs.

England, however, bowled exceedingly well in the next half of the tea session, throttling Australia with dot deliveries. The ploy worked as Warner poked the one he had been leaving all day. With this wicket, Anderson equalled Courtney Walsh’s tally of 519 wickets in Test cricket.

Before Warner walked back, England had dismissed Cameron Bancroft. The duo added 122 for the first wicket, 26 of which came of Bancroft’s bat. Chris Woakes darted one in to trap him in the crease.

In all, Australia have scored runs at 2.68. Smith will look to remain unbeaten to down the struggling Englishmen.

Brief scores:

Australia 145 for 2 (David Warner 103; Chris Woakes 1 for 38) vs England.
