Steve Smith, David Warner and Travis Head's half-centuries on day 1 help Australia dominate England in the 2nd Ashes Test

England captain Ben Stokes won the toss in overcast conditions in the morning and opted to bowl first to strike home the advantage. Usman Khawaja (17 off 70 balls) started watchfully as English pacers swung the ball in both directions from the outset. His opening partner David Warner took the opposite route and kept looking for scoring opportunities constantly.

Luck also favored the duo as they received lifelines through a couple of drop catches by the English fielders, much to the frustration of the bowlers. Josh Tongue finally broke the 73-run opening stand at the stroke of lunch in the 24th over by cleaning up Usman Khawaja.

The speedster then produced a brilliant inswinger to dislodge David Warner's bails in the second session to give England a timely breakthrough. Marnus Labuschagne (47) and Steve Smith dug in and took the innings ahead with a steady 102-run partnership for the third wicket. Ollie Robinson sent Labuschagne back to the pavilion in the 55th over to separate the dangerous duo.

Travis Head (77 off 73 balls) then came in and played an aggressive knock and put together a 118-run stand with Steve Smith to inject momentum into the innings. Joe Root pulled things back for England in the final hour by dismissing Head and Cameron Green in the 75th over. Alex Carey (11*) and Steve Smith (85*) remained unbeaten for Australia at stumps on the first day.
