Pat Cummins becomes first skipper to take ‘Fifer’ in Ashes!
CRICDOT DESK : Australian fast bowlers, led by Pat Cummins, stole the show on the first day of Ash Wednesday 2021-22. The trio of Mitchell Stark, Josh Hazlewood and Cummins ran through England’s nervous batting line up and pooled into the first team in two sessions.
England got off to a terrible start after choosing to win first on a cloudy day. After Mitchell Stark defeated Rory Burns on a duck, guests were hit hard by the first ball. It was only the beginning of the collapse of England, as it quickly dropped to 3 to 11.
Wicketkeeper batsman Jos Buttler showed a bit of elasticity and sewed Ollie Pope and a 52-run stand for the sixth wicket in a post-lunch session. But when Pat Cummins got five tickets, the Australian quickly bounced off. Stark and Hazlewood each chose two wickets while Cameron Green stepped in and got his first test scalp. 4,444 people on social media praised the Australian captain for causing havoc in Gabber, who lost the test in early January 30 years later.
