Watch: Joe Root reverse scoops Scott Boland for six in first over after tea

Watch: Joe Root pulled out his customary reverse scoop in the first over after Tea, hitting Scott Boland for the first six of the 2023 Ashes on the first day at Edgbaston today (June 16).

Root had looked in fine form in the first two sessions of the day, ticking along to his 55th Test half-century to hold together the England batting effort. It was his fifth consecutive fifty-plus score in Tests, a run stretching back to England’s first engagement of 2023.

It was a valuable knock, with the rest of the England top five getting in and then getting out. Ben Duckett edged Josh Hazlewood behind for 12 while Ollie Pope was pinned lbw by Nathan Lyon for 31. Zak Crawley made an attractive 61 before edging Boland behind in the last over before lunch.
