So that is it from the first Test of this year's Ashes. It is Australia who take a 1-0 lead and they also win the first game of the World Test Championship. The whole Test match was a roller coaster ride. If this is anything to go by, it is going to be a cracking series. The second Test is to be played at Lord's on the 14th of August 2019. It begins at 1100 local (1000 GMT). Till then, take care and goodbye!
MAN OF THE MATCH - Steve Smith for his magnificent tons in both the innings. There was absolutely no doubt about him being given the award. It is because of him, Australia won this game.
Day 5 though saw the Aussie bowlers blow away the England batting line-up. Cummins and Nathan Lyon being the star with both sharing 10 wickets amongst them. An outstanding display of character was shown by the Aussies in this game. They were booed and bullied throughout the game by the English fans but they never let it get into their heads and they came out on top that too convincingly.
Despite that fightback, England batted extremely well and ended Day 2 on 267 for 4 with Rory Burns scoring a ton. They would have surely eyed a lead in excess of 150 but the Australian bowlers bowled brilliantly on the morning of Day 3 and ensured England did not take their lead past 100 which saw the game evenly poised. However, three wickets even before the deficit was wiped off, surely made England favorites. Yet again though Steve Smith and another comeback man, Matthew Wade, batted Australia out of the game with tons. Australia managed to score 487, giving England a target of 398 which was impossible to chase on the last day but a draw was on the cards.
Now then, the scorecard suggest, Australia won by 251 runs but the game was never so one-sided as it suggests. Instead, for the first three days, it seemed like, it would be England who would take a 1-0 lead. They had Australia on the mat after the visitors elected to bat at 122 for 8 courtesy a fifer from Broad. However, the comeback men, rose to the occasion. Smith showed why he is one of the best going around with a brilliant ton. Siddle hung around with him and his knock also proved to be very handy. Also, a crucial last wicket stand saw Australia get to a competitive first innings score.
What a performance from the Australian bowlers today! They have breached the Edgbaston fortress. Well, one would assume there might not be a lot of difference in a 4th day wicket and a 5th day wicket but it seemed like Australia bowled on a completely different surface than what England bowled on yesterday. They managed to take 4 wickets in the first session and 6 in around an hour and 30 minutes in the second. The star with the ball for Australia - Nathan Lyon. Credit has to be given to Pat Cummins as well as he was brilliant on a wicket which did not assist the pacers a lot.

Pat Cummins To Chris Woakes OUT!
OUT! Caught! That is it! Woakes' lone battle comes to an end! Cummins bangs one short, Woakes looks to leave but the ball is close to the body and he ends up playing it late. The ball lobs off the upper half of his bat towards second slip. Fittingly, the last catch is taken by Steve Smith! Australia win the first Ashes Test by 251 runs.

Nathan Lyon To Stuart Broad OUT!
OUT! Caught at slip! A golden duck for Broad. Two wickets in two balls for Lyon. He has 6 now. Another left-hander falls prey to him. He floats it on off and gets this one to turn away too. Broad plays the original trajectory. The ball kisses the outside edge and this time Smith at first slip takes it. Australia a wicket away now and Lyon is on a hat-trick.
Stuart Broad is the next batsman in.

Nathan Lyon To Moeen Ali OUT!
OUT! TAKEN! Any guesses who gets Moeen Ali? It can't be that difficult for you to guess. I'll give you a hint, he has dismissed Moeen Ali 8 times in Tests before this one. Nathan Lyon it is. His fifth wicket. His 15th five-fer in Tests. It was him who Australia were going to rely on today and he delivers. Lyon tosses it up on middle, it pitches and turns away. Moeen Ali does not account for the turn. An outside edge which goes straight to Warner at second slip.

Peter Siddle To Moeen Ali
NOT OUT! Height is indeed the issue. Australia lose one of their two reviews. Length ball nipping in, Ali looks to defend but gets beaten. The ball hits him high on the pads. Australia ask the question but the umpire is not interested. Tim Paine signals the 'T'. Replays roll in and Hawk Eye shows that the ball was just over the leg stump.
LBW appeal referred by Australia. Moeen Ali is the man in question. Height seems to be an issue. Let us see what the replays think.

Nathan Lyon To Ben Stokes OUT!
OUT! EDGED AND TAKEN! Two-in-two for Australia. 350th Test wicket for Lyon. Ben Stokes is out of here now. Three wickets away from a victory are Australia. Lyon has 4 to his name. Another tossed up ball around off, it pitches and turns away. Stokes defends inside the line, the ball kisses the outside edge and goes into the mitts of Paine. Wickets tumbling at the moment. This can end before the Drinks Break.
Moeen Ali is the new man in. He has struggled with the bat and was poor with the ball too but a gritty fight here might just make him the English hero.

England six down and Bairstow walks back after another failure. Cummins has his third. Another good short one, this one though does not rise a lot. Bairstow looks to sway out of the way but the ball seems to hit the glove and lob towards third slip where Bancroft takes it. An appeal, the umpire thinks, thinks and then gives it. Bairstow reviews. Replays roll in and it shows that it is off the strap.
Bairstow is caught. He has been given out but he has reviewed. He has signaled that it is off the arm.

Pat Cummins To Jos Buttler OUT!
OUT! Knocked him over! Australia are all over England at the moment. Half the side back in the hut for England. Ideal start to the session for the visitors. 5 wickets away now from taking a 1-0 lead. He started the over with a beauty and ends it with another one. This is slightly fuller around off, it pitches and comes back in. Buttler should have been playing ahead but he opts to stay back. The ball till then sneaks through and hits the top of off. Cummins is absolutely elated. His second today. He has been superb in this innings.

We are back for the second session. Ben Stokes and Jos Buttler will resume their innings. Australia are six wickets away from a victory. Pat Cummins will start the proceedings for this session.
... DAY 5, SESSION 2 ...
Well, it has been a disastrous morning for England. They would have hoped to not lose more than a couple of wicket in the first session but have all their top 4 batsmen back in the hut. The onus will now be on the duo of Buttler and Stokes. The same pair who won them the World Cup will now have to fight it out in the longest form of the game if the hosts want to salvage this Test and avoid a defeat at the venue where they have enjoyed a lot of success. How will the second session pan out? Join us after the break to find out.
Lunch! No question who this session belonged to. Australia have dominated the morning session on Day 5. They wanted wickets in the first session and they have got 4 of them. It all hinged on how would Nathan Lyon do on this turning wicket and he has done remarkably. The GOAT has picked three wickets, including the big wicket of English skipper, Joe Root. Denly and Roy were his other victims. Lyon has been well supported by the trio of fast bowlers. In a pitch where there has been nothing for the seamers, Cummins, Siddle and Pattinson have bowled with determination and aggression not allowing England to get any easy runs. Cummins was the other one to get into the wickets column.

Nathan Lyon To Joe Root OUT!
OUT! Caught! Body blow for England! Their skipper is out of here and the man who was going to be dangerous has got his third victim. A proper off spinners wicket this. Flighted delivery outside off, it spins in. Root looks to defend but the ball spins more than he expected. It takes the inside edge of the bat and goes straight to short leg. Bancroft there does really well and takes a very good sharp catch. Root has been the pillar of this English batting line-up and he was going to be crucial if they wanted to survive this Test but this wicket has massively turned the match in Australia's favour.

The umpire though is unmoved. Paine takes the review straightaway. Hawk Eye rolls in and shows that the ball was clipping the leg pole but not enough to overturn.

Nathan Lyon To Joe Denly OUT!
OUT! There is a clear edge! Not sure how he did not know that. England have lost one of their reviews. Lyon takes another. Denly's poor run with the bat continues and England in deep, deep trouble here. Lyon's ploy to come from around the wicket has worked. He floats it up on off, it pitches and turns back in. Denly looks to work it on the leg side but the ball hits the inside edge then the pad and lobs to Bancroft at short leg. Australia are celebrating and the umpire gives it out for caught. Denly walks upto his partner and reviews at the very end. Replays roll in and Ultra Edge shows a spike. Denly has to take the long walk back. Australia 7 wickets away now.

Paine was moving towards the left as the ball came towards him and hence, it was difficult to adjust.

NOT OUT! There is an inside edge and a big one! The umpire is really not having a good day here. His second wrong decision today. This is on off and it jags back in. Root looks to defend but there are two sounds. One is surely of the ball hitting the pad. An appeal follows and the umpire raises the finger. Root reviews and Ultra Edge shows there is a big spike.
Root is given out LBW again! He reviews again. If no inside edge, it looks out.

NOT OUT! Going down leg! A successful review by Root. England will breathe a sigh of relief as this would have been a body blow for England. Pattinson angles this into the pads. Root looks to flick but misses to get hit on the pads. The ball rolls towards the leg side as the batters run a leg bye. In the meantime, the bowler is appealing. The umpire raises his finger. Root reviews immediately. Replays roll in and they show the on-field call has to be overturned. Also, the run will be cancelled as the umpire had given Root out.
Big moment in the game! Root has been given out LBW. He reviews. This could be a good review.

Pat Cummins To Rory Burns OUT!
OUT! In the air... taken! 1 down, 9 to go! Cummins bowls an absolute brute of a delivery to get the centurion of the first innings. It is shorter in length and Cummins bends his back on this one. Skids through and also gets big on the batter. Burns does not have enough time to move out of the way so he looks to fend at it. The ball hits the higher portion of the bat and lobs towards point where Lyon takes a dolly. Early wicket for Australia, ideal start for them.

Pat Cummins To Rory Burns
FOUR! That is a confident start by Burns. A lovely defensive push for a boundary. On a length and around off, Burns pushes it through extra cover and the ball races away to the fence.
We are all set to begin Day 5. It is bright and sunny at the moment which is probably good for England. Their batters, Jason Roy and Rory Burns, will resume their innings. The Australian players are out in a huddle. They seemed quite relax. The visitors now make their way to the middle. Pat Cummins, who did not bowl an over yesterday, will start the proceedings for Australia. Three slips and a gully in place. Here we go...
The equation is simple today, Australia need 10 wickets to take a 1-0 lead whereas England have to score 385 in around 90 overs if they are to win the first Test. The latter part looks improbable so one would assume, the hosts would look to play out for a draw. The wicket yesterday was on the slower side but being the 5th day, there might just be more wear and tear and more assistance to the bowlers. It is not going to be easy for the home side. The first session, actually, the first hour is the important one. If England play that out without much damage, they would back themselves to save this game. An exciting day of cricket waits ahead. Welcome to the coverage.
... Day 5, Session 1 ...
England on the other hand, will probably first try and save this game! They need another 385 runs but scoring that in one day, is quite impossible. The hosts need to go session by session, analyze their position and then see how they need to go about things. They have a batting line-up capable of surviving a whole day but will they be able to do so? We will find out on Day 5 as all the action begins at 1100 local (1000 GMT). Till then, take care and goodbye!
Australia can be very pleased with where they are in the game at the moment! However, one could argue they could have declared a lot earlier. Hindsight is always a good thing. They still are favorites to win this game after tons from Smith and Wade. They have around 90 overs on Monday to take the 10 England wickets and by the look of things, the wicket is assisting the spinner so probably, Nathan Lyon will be the key for them.
England will enter Day 5, without any damage being done! Their openers have survived the nervy period. There were many oohs and aahs but they will be happy with the fact that they have not lost a wicket. They though are still way behind in the game.
