First hundred in the Ashes for Joe Root since 2015; a rare 400-run Ashes day


The high-stakes first day of the 2023 Ashes at Edgbaston will have all the statistical milestones.

393 for 8 Dec With the exception of England’s 407 all out in 2005 at the Edgbaston, no side has scored more runs on the first day of an Ashes Test since World War II than they did in Birmingham.

On Friday, England and Australia combined for 407 runs. These runs were scored on the opening day of an Ashes Test match for the second consecutive time since World War II. England scored 407 runs on the first day of the 2005 Ashes Test in the same location as they did in 2001, when Birmingham hosted the Ashes Test.

England batted for 78 overs in their opening game. The first innings of this men’s Test match was declared after the fourth-shortest time ever. at addition, it beats Australia’s 200 for nine after batting for 65.3 eight-ball overs (87.1 six-ball overs), announced as the quickest opening innings of an Ashes Test, made at Melbourne in 1937.

Having lost nine wickets for 59 runs on an exposed ground that had soaked in the rain during a five-hour delay, Pakistan declared after 44.5 overs of play against England in the 1974 Lord’s Test. Earlier this year, in the day-night Test match against New Zealand at Mount Maunganui, England declared just after 58.2 overs in order to have a bowl at the hosts under the floodlights.
