Stuart Broad makes my day at Brisbane

Posted on November 21, 2013 by Selby There have been 0 comments

Stuart Broad responded well to a hostile Australian crowd with a haul of five wickets as England took control on  day 1 of the first Ashes Test at Brisbane.

Aussie cricket coach Darren Lehmann  must have been impressed by Broad's resilience as he took 5-65 to leave the Aussies struggling at 273-8.

Cricket memorabilia is made more interesting with controversy and Lehmann and Broads comments during last summers Ashes series always make these things so much more interesting, I will be looking for team signed cricket bat at Brisbane tomorrow!!

Aussie skipper Michael Clarke had won the toss and opted to bat first on what looked a flat surface.James Anderson picked up two wickets, while Chris Tremlett claimed 1-51 as England's bid to secure a fourth series win in a row down under was given the perfect start.with the hosts in trouble after they were left reeling at 132-6 - it was left up to Brad Haddin and Mitchell Johnson to take the fight to England. Haddin  came to the crease with his team needing inspiration on 143-5, shared a 114-run stand with Johnson to keep the tourists at bay through the evening session, until the new ball arrived and Johnson was finally removed for 64 off 134 deliveries. Haddin remained unbeaten on 78, while David Warner also made 49 but the session belonged to England.

Broad was delighted to have dismissed batsman 1234 and 6 (5/65)

Makes for an exciting days play -  day 2 at the Gabba Test
