The biggest cricketing rivalry Ashes 2019 has started its way out at Edgbaston, Birmingham on Thursday. Australia captain Tim Paine won the toss and elected to bat.
David Warner along with his opening partners Cameron Bancroft was welcomed by the fast bowlers James Anderson and Stuart Broad. Both the bowlers didn’t give easy runs scoring opportunities to the opening pair.
Eventually, David Warner was trapped by the Stuart Board at a very early stage of the innings and was set to leave the field for just two runs.
David Warner was given an unusual send-off by the crowd as they showed sandpaper while he was walking off the field.
It’s a sandpaper send off from the Hollies.

In the match, Stuart Board got rid of both the players where it became a tough one at the start of the match.
Australia who was the current holders of Ashes has not won the matches since 2001. England has won the last 11 international matches at the Edgbaston cricket ground in Birmingham.
