Ben Stokes
Since Ben Stokes became the Test team's captain, England has been unbeatable.

Zak Crawley got England on the board by driving Australia’s first delivery from Pat Cummins through the covers for four.

On Friday, England won the toss and elected to bat against Australia in the first Test match of the Ashes series at Edgbaston. England, who had previously held the Ashes in 2015, were soundly beaten by their greatest rivals, Australia, by a score of 0-4 in their most recent match in 2022. Joe Root’s tenure as Test captain ended after the squad lost the series. With Brendon McCullum at the helm as coach and Ben Stokes at the helm as captain, England has been unstoppable in Test cricket.

Their ultra-aggressive form of cricket, known as “Baseball,” has completely taken over Test cricket. Stokes has guided his team to 11 victories and only three losses in 14 matches as captain.

Crawley struck early for England when they elected to bat, smashing Australia’s first delivery from captain Pat Cummins across the covers for four.

After 21 overs, England was 102/2 with Zak Crawley on 56 and Joe Root on 3 not out.

Australia, the reigning World Test champions, benched Mitchell Starc and brought in Josh Hazlewood.

The morning session has seen two attacks by the guests. Ben Duckett (12) was bowled by Josh Hazlewood for a single, while Ollie Pope (31) was dismissed by a solid LBW review off Nathan Lyon’s bowling.

Australia is hoping to win its first Ashes series in England in 22 years, while England is trying to win its first Ashes series in England since 2015.
