India - Ashes 2021/22: Australian skipper Pat Cummins takes historic five-wicket haul
Australia's newly-appointed skipper Pat Cummins took a historic five-wicket haul on the opening day of the Ashes series opener at the Gabba. Cummins ripped through England's middle order, plundering his sixth five-for in Test cricket. The Australian pacer broke several records as England were bundled out for 147 in the first innings. He received due support from Mitchell Starc and Josh Hazlewood.
Takeaways Why does this story matter?
Cummins recently took over the mantle of the Australian Test side from Tim Paine, who is on an indefinite break. Paine had earlier stepped down as Australia's Test captain in the wake of the sexting scandal. The former has become the first pacer since Richie Benaud to captain the Aussies. And, he has marked the beginning of his captaincy stint with a five-for.
