England were restricted to 238 for nine at the end of Day One of the fourth Ashes Test against Australia at Chester-le-Street on Friday.

England skipper Alastair Cook won the toss and elected to bat first. The conditions were overcast early in the day and it was tough to bat.

oe Root and Cook were circumspect and measured in their approach. Cook took 16 balls to get off the mark and the first boundary for England only came in the 12th over. Jackson Bird, who replaced Mitchell Starc, and Ryan Harris purchased some movement early on.

 Nathan Lyon was the star for Australia as his spell of four for 42 led to an English collapse.
