Stuart Broad did all of his talking with the ball on what was an eventful first day of the new Ashes series, with away side winning overall honours.
With plenty of talk continuing Broad’s refusal to walk in the first Test of the English summer, he took on the role of villain with aplomb and reaped the rewards of 5-65 as he helped restrict Australia to 273-8 at the end of the first day’s play.
Apart from Broad’s sensational bowling performance was, again, the limp batting effort of the Australian top-order that failed to make any real impact despite several players looking like they would push on for a big score.
David Warner set the tone by pulling the first ball of the Test to the boundary, before he fell for 49.
Shane Watson overcame a scratchy start and made 22 well-earned runs before becoming another victim of Broad, although, the all-rounder looked to have progress from the LBW traps that consumed him during the recent English leg of the Ashes.
The telling blow was the dismissal of captain Michael Clarke for just one.
Again it came via the hand of Broad, but it was more than that, as the only player that is likely to strike fear into the Three Lions’ attack was back in the dressing rooms before he was able to stamp his mark on the game.
If it was not for the late resistance from Brad Haddin (78 not out) and Mitchell Johnson (64) the score for Australia could have been embarrassingly low, rather than merely disappointing.
With the strip offering all of the usual bounce and pace that has been expected from a game at the Gabba, any score under 350 would be seen as well below the expected target, and would put in-form English pair Michael Carberry and Alastair Cook right in line to not just match Australia but put their noses in front going into days two and three.
