Ashes 2013: Australia Vs England - 1st Test Results, Review and Statistical Highlights

The first test of the Ashes 2013 series kicked off with England winning the toss and electing to bat first.  Just like all the other Ashes tournaments in the past, this one had a lot of twists and turns and no one knew who would eventually turn out to be a winner in the end.  Australia tried hard to go one up but unfortunately results didn't quite favored them today.  Read on for the Ashes 2013: Australia Vs England 1st Test Results along with the batting and bowling performance review, Scorecard and Statistical Highlights of the match as it happened.

Statistical Highlights

England's batting during the first innings of the Ashes 2013 was a little tentative as they kept losing regular wickets and never got a good partnership going. The best highlights of their innings were Jonathan Trott and Jonny Bairstow who made a score of 48 and 37 respectively to help them reach a score of 215 runs.  There were a few other contributions from Joe Root and Stuart Broad who made a score of 30 and 24 respectively.

During their second innings of the 2013 series, 1st match, England's batting was much better.  Despite them being in a spot of bother at 218/6, a good partnership between Ian Bell and Stuart Broad ensured they took their score past 300 eventually setting a target of 311 for the aussies to chase down.  The best highlights of their innings was Ian Bell who made a score of 109.  The other significant contributions included Stuart Broad's 65, Kevin Pietersen's 64 and Alistair Cook's 50, the results still looked evenly balanced at this stage..

Australia's batting in the first innings of ashes 2013 was a tad better than Eng as they ensured they ended their innings with a lead.  The best highlights of their batting was Ashton Agar who made a score 98 while Philip Hughes' 81 and Steven Smith's 53 contribution helped them push their score towards 280.

During their second innings Australia had a target of 311 to reach to ensure results went in their favor.  They started off well but lost wickets in cluster in between.  They once again got back into the match as Brad Haddin tried to bat around with the tail enders to try and win the match for them.  He was the best highlights of their innings as he made 71 however it was not good enough as the Aussies were all out for a score of 296 which left them 14 runs sort of the target.

England's bowling during the first test of ashes 2013 as always was over dependent on James Anderson once again as he picked up 10 wickets (5 in each innings) to help them win the match by 14 runs towards the end.

Australia's bowling during the first test of Ashes 2013 was a mixed bag, Peter Siddle picked up 5 wickets in the first innings and 3 wickets in the second and was good throughout the match. Other bowlers gave him good support as well as they contained the batsmen and picked up an occasional wicket here and there.

England will be very happy with the results of the 1st test as towards the end it looked as though the aussies might just scrape through.
