Day 1 Report
England have been off to a flying begin on the opening day of the fifth Check in Hobart however Travis Head’s century spoiled the guests’ celebration. Derailing at 12/3, Head’s ton guided Australia to achieve 241-6 at stumps on a rain-hit first day. Head, who scored 152 within the opening check at Brisbane, counterpunched England’s early success with an aggressive 101 off 113 balls within the day-night check as Australia got here again strongly after dropping the toss. Cameron Inexperienced contributed an authoritative 74 and Marnus Labuschagne scored a speedy 44 earlier than rain arrived round half an hour after tea and prevented additional play.
