Australia has won the 1st Test of the Ashes series 2021-22 against England by 9 wickets at The Gabba. The opening game of Ashes has been wrapped up in just 4 days and the new Australian skipper Pat Cummins will be pumped up with this win.

What Went Wrong For England In this Game?

The only main point that went wrong for the English Men was – “Decision To Bat First”. England has indirectly lost this game on the 1st day itself, where they were sent back to the pavilion for just 147 runs on board. Joe Root’s decision to bat first has backfired for them – In the absence of Broad and Anderson England bowling unit was looking weak.

Meanwhile, the Australian unit has performed beautifully on all 4 days – special mention to their bowling unit, all the 3 seamers have performed really great.

England will look to revise their plans for the 2nd Test at Adelaide and they will definitely come back stronger against the in-form Australian side. On the other hand, Aussies will look to continue the same momentum and will look to have new plans ready for the touring side.

Travis Head has been announced as the Player of the Match for his outstanding 152 in 148 balls which includes 14 fours and 4 sixes with a strike rate of 102.70 in the 1st innings of the game.

In the post-match presentation, Travis said – “The staff, Pat [Cummins] and JL [Justin Langer] were fantastic with the communication, gave me real clarity and a clear mind and great to get the nod and great to contribute. It is a great starting point for us as a team. Davey-Marnus partnership that set me up, late in the day to take my opportunity. It was a tough wicket, rode my luck, took my opportunities and it was nice to contribute and this morning was fantastic. The whole moment, the crowd and the emotion of Test cricket – you ride that wave, I was going quite hard and there was plenty of emotion there and riding that with Starcy [Starc] was fantastic
