Stuart Broad and Steve Smith shine on frantic opening day of the Ashes

England bowler Stuart Broad takes five wickets and Australia's Steve Smith earns a century on day one of the first Ashes Test at Edgbaston.

The first Specsavers Test would have kicked off with England seemingly well in the box seat had Smith not hit a brilliant 144, more than half of his team's 284 all out and a distant dream after they limped to 122 for eight.

Sixteen months after watching their careers collapse in disgrace following the sandpaper scandal Smith, David Warner and Cameron Bancroft all returned to boos, jeers and brickbats from the notoriously raucous Birmingham crowd, but while the latter pair faltered Smith flourished.

England had one hand tied behind their back from the moment record wicket-taker James Anderson was struck down by a right calf injury that restricted him to one four-over spell, and he faces an uncertain future in the match and the series.

But in his absence Stuart Broad stood tall, claiming five for 86 to reach 100 Ashes scalps, while Chris Woakes added three for 58.
