Australia vs England, Ashes first Test live score and updates:England captain Joe Root won the toss and decided to bat at the Gabba in Brisbane and the tourists got off to the worst possible start as Mitchell Starc clean bowled Rory Burns for a first-ball duck. A scorching half volley that sneaked past Burns’ legs and clattered into the stumps. England have had a dismal run in the past two Ashes series in Australia and they would want to change that and take the ‘Urn’ back. The onus will be on the shoulders of captain Root, star all-rounder Ben Stokes and a strong battery of fast bowlers. As far as Australia are concerned, it’s another another fresh start under Pat Cummins’ leadership – Australia’ first full-time seam-bowling captain in their history. England have gone in with a three-man pace attack of Mark Wood, Ollie Robinson and Chris Woakes along with the medium pace of Ben Stokes and spinner Jack Leach. That means both English stalwarts James Anderson and Stuart Broad are not in the playing XI  for the first Test. Australia line up in a similar fashion with the indomitable pace trio of Mitchell Starc, captain Cummins and Josh Hazlewood along with the medium pace of Cameron Green and the impeccable off spin of Nathan Lyon.
