Ashes Australia takes first Day honours

After 1st test of Ashes series where the Aussies almost tasted victory but for thanks to England Tailenders, the visitors are trying to prove a point. This time at Headringley Leeds grounds this Aussies got some pride back in the Fourth Test on the opening day. After winning the toss the England Captain Strauss took the batting. The English innings withstood only 33.5 overs before getting all out for 102.

The successful bowlers were Siddle whitewashing them with 5 wickets for 21 runs and Stuart Clark took 3 in a rapid aggression. Only Mattprior who made 37 runs unbeaten showed some patience.

Ricky Ponting the captain was in a punishing mood played brilliantly for his 78 along with Watson showed excellent timing in contributing 51 of 67 balls. At the end the visitors were 196/4 - Clark on 34 North on 7.
