Day two of the first Ashes Test promises to be crucial as Australia look to build on a stunning first day and England look to fight their way back into the contest at the Gabba, Brisbane. After being bowled out for 147, England have a lot of work to do and the first session will be a tense contest. Join The Roar for live scores and a blog from 10:00am AEDT.

Day one of the Ashes 2021/22 series didn’t fail to disappoint. From the first ball when Mitchell Starc bowled Rory Burns, to the final wicket of the day when skipper Pat Cummins got his five wicket haul, it was an enthralling day of Test match cricket and Australia got the better of almost every moment.

Thanks to the rain and bad light stopping play at tea time on day one, today will start 30 minutes earlier and England will want to take quick wickets. You’d expect Joe Root to have spent Wednesday evening watching replays of how the Australians got their wickets – plenty of pitched up bowling that drew the batsmen into tricky decisions.

With only 147 runs on the board, Root might be afraid to attack but attack he must as the only thing that can save England is doing to Australia what Australia did to his side on day one.

For Australia, the challenge is simple – bat England out of the match. Fans and pundits alike will be watching carefully to see if the Aussie batting line up can deliver in the same way that the bowlers did on Wednesday. Dave Warner, Steve Smith and Marnus Labuschagne all have great talent but do they have the form to put pressure on England?

The Australian middle order has some question marks hanging over it with Alex Carey on debut at Test level and Cameron Green still unproven in the early stages of his career.

The weather is likely to play an ongoing role in this first Test and so both sides will want to get on with things and make the most of the forecast early sun.

An enthralling day of Test cricket awaits and both sides need to go for the jugular.
