England star James Anderson vows to return before Ashes end

Boos Doesn’t Bother Me Says Steve Smith After Heroic Ton

England's defeat at Edgbaston means they face an uphill battle to wrestle the Ashes back from Australia, who have not won a Test series in England since 2001.

Joe Root's side made a strong start to the first Test, but supreme batting from Steve Smith (144 and 142) in both innings helped Australia claim a resounding victory.

"He must play this second Test".

Smith was stripped of the captaincy and handed a 12-month ban by Cricket Australia after teammate Cameron Bancroft was caught on camera attempting to change the condition of the ball with sandpaper during a Test in South Africa last March.

Archer, who was England's leading wicket-taker in the ICC Men's Cricket World Cup 2019, is recovering from an injury himself, but has been tested in domestic games.

Moeen offered neither control nor a consistent threat in Australia's second innings, with unflattering figures of two for 130 from 29 overs containing two "moon ball" beamers.

'It is something exciting that we've been waiting for - for those guys to get up to speed and I don't think we are too far away from that.

Bayliss has put a premium on producing more fast bowlers and thinks England is finally "up to speed". Just curious how he's going to go, like you are with all fast bowlers.

Mahesh Bhupathi named captain for India-Pakistan Davis Cup tie
The tie, for which the AITA named a full-strength team, is scheduled to be held in Islamabad on September 14-15. This was the same policy that sees India and Pakistan play cricket against each other only at ICC tournaments.

"We're obviously happy to win the first Test".

"Not a lot was said between us".

Root and his fellow decision-makers have a number of issues to ponder before battle resumes at Lord's next week against a historical backdrop that shows Michael Vaughan's class of 2005 were the last team to win the series after surrendering the first match.

"We're one-nil down, but there are four matches to go in the series".

"My view is we didn't play well enough for long enough, really".

"I certainly felt that my game was at a stage where I could perform at this level", Wade said. I keep saying this: There's nothing you can do about that, just keep smiling and keep concentrating on what you've got to concentrate on and it is what it is.

"Buttler has only five first-class centuries having spent all his county career playing on good pitches at Taunton and Old Trafford so there must be a reason for that".

"My concern is you don't underestimate the psychological effect of Jimmy Anderson has on the England team, but also the positive effect it sends through the Australia team". With the likelihood of playing his maiden Test, Archer is looking forward to carve his name in the ever so renowned Lord's Honours Board.
