Pat Cummins made a special record in the debut innings of captaincy
Sports Desk. The Kangaroo team bundled out the England team for just 147 runs in the first match of the Ashes series being played in Brisbane on the basis of strong performance by the fast bowlers led by the new captain of Australia Pat Cummins. Cummins took 5 for 38, taking the last 3 wickets in his first innings as Australian captain. Apart from them, Mitchell Starc and Josh Hazlewood took two wickets each, while all-rounder Cameron Green took one wicket.
As soon as Pat Cummins dismissed Chris Woakes in this match, he became only the second bowler to take 5 wickets in the Ashes as captain. The last time Bob Billis achieved this feat before him was in 1982. The struggling England team, losing 5 wickets for just 60 runs, was strengthened by Ollie Pope and wicket-keeper batsman Jos Buttler.
Both shared 52 runs for the sixth wicket and helped the team to cross 100. While Ollie Pope then became the victim of Cameron Green, Jos Buttler was sent to the pavilion by Starc. Apart from these two other English batsmen could not do much and the whole team was all out for 147 runs in 50.1 overs.
