Australia took the dominant position two days into Ashes’ opener at The Gabba, building a 196-time lead with a base score of 343 for seven.
No shadow, no call
When Ben Stokes forcing one man past Warner’s defense in the first part of the game, England’s joy was short-lived because of a front slip. Then it became clear that the almighty player was clearing the way on a regular basis without being pulled up. Modern game day protocols state that third referees should not monitor balls with specialized cameras but it is clear that the technology has malfunctioned and will not be available during the game. Former captain of Australia Ricky Ponting complained of “pathetic act” in a Channel 7 commentary, suggesting Stokes should have been informed of the matter before paying a heavy price.

Warner is no stranger to getting a second chance thanks to the slick dribbles of a pitcher who has benefited four times against the following opponents: Varun Aaron (2014), Wahab Riaz (2016) , Tom Curran (2017), Naseem Shah (2019) ).

Net duty for great speed
As Warner and Marnus Labuschagne embarked on compiling a 156-round stand, it was hard for British fans to disapprove of James Anderson and Stuart Broad – who owned a combined 1,156 Test Plugs. The issue hasn’t escaped the attention of TV producers Down Under, who delight in returning to the practice fields every time record-ranked athletes emerge during a practice session. A penny for Joe Root’s thoughts as the pair look fit and ready for action.
Irish eyes don’t smile
Ashes’ historic rivalry has earned its spot in the ticketing spotlight, but it’s worth remembering that there are others who would enjoy a fraction of the attention given to the competition. Ireland have played just three times since being granted Test status in 2017 and are eagerly looking for their next offer, a point made with captain Andrew Balbirnie’s sledgehammer flair.
Britain will probably look for rain to save them and the Australian Bureau of Meteorology predicts a 50% chance of showers, most likely in the morning or early afternoon, with a chance of a thunderstorm following the storms. Severe blows over Queensland on Thursday. dark.
