New Delhi. After defeating India in the WTC final, Australia has also removed the arrogance of England. The condition is slim in the very first Test of The Ashes series of England, which created a buzz of baseball. Australia returned half of the England team to the pavilion for just 176 runs in the first Test match being played in Birmingham. Where Australia’s bowlers played an excellent role in thinning the condition of England. At the same time, the misfortune of England’s batters also pushed the host team on the backfoot. For example, take the way of Harry Brook’s dismissal. The way Harry Brook got out, only one word came out of everyone’s mouth – Unlucky.
England’s young batsman Harry Brook was bowled by Nathan Lyon after scoring 32 runs. Brook scored these 32 runs in just 37 balls and from this it can be understood that this English batsman scored runs according to the baseball. He hit 4 fours in his innings. His strike rate was 86.86.48.
Harry Brook pads up the second ball of the 38th over. This ball of Nathan Lyon, bowling round the wicket, fell outside the leg stump and turned legside outside. Harry Brook defended it and just tried to make sure that the ball did not hit his bat. The same happened. The ball hit his thigh pad instead of the bat and bounced up.
A freak dismissal.
