Ashes Podcast - Brisbane Day One Review

Alastair Symondson and John Pennington look back at the opening day of the first Ashes Test in Brisbane which saw Stuart Broad answer his critics with a five-wicket haul.

They try to assess what sort of score Australia will be aiming for after closing on 273 for eight and the performance of Broad, who took five for 65.

That came after a local newspaper described as a 'smug cheat' and a medium pacer.

Brad Haddin's efforts in making 78 are also praised by the pair.
