Reaction after day one of the First Ashes Test at Edgbaston where Australia's Steve Smith scored a brilliant century to haul his side back into the match after they were struggling at 122 for 8 at one stage against England.

Smith - playing in his first Test since his ban for his role in the now-infamous ball-tampering affair - scored 144 and held the innings together after England threatened to bowl them out cheaply.

He received support from tail-enders Peter Siddle and Nathan Lyon as Australia eventually reached 284 all out - Stuart Broad the pick of the England bowlers with 5 for 86.

It was Smith's 24th Test century - and one of his most important - but one which was greeted with booing from some sections of the English crowd after his recent chequered past.
