by Wisden Staff 14 minute listen

Listen to the first of our daily Ashes podcasts.

Well, well, well. After all the chat and pre-Ashes hype, day one of the first Test at Edgbaston certainly delivered. A Steve Smith masterclass helped Australia come back from 122-8 to 284 all out, leaving them arguably ahead of the game after the first day of the 2019 Ashes. Yas Rana and Taha Hashim look back at a brilliant day of cricket, while Phil Walker waxes lyrical about a special Steve Smith century from the ground at Edgbaston.
