Bucks make amends for Gabba
David Warner (47) and ran out Cameron Bancroft (10).
Anderson claimed Usman Khawaja (53) courtesy of an exceptional James Vince catch but Woakes would have had the No.3 on 44 if Mark Stoneman hadn’t dropped an outfield sitter.
Having put Australia in to bat against the pink ball in conditions more English than antipodean, Anderson and enduring off-sider Broad bowled too short with the new rock. Broad found his groove but Australia would have had 250 as a par score and been well satisfied reaching stumps with Peter Handscomb (36) and Shaun Marsh (20) resuming at 4/209.
Australian pace trio Mitchell Starc, Pat Cummins and Josh Hazlewood loom as a frightening prospect under lights on day two.
The overcast conditions were made for cricket’s master of swing Anderson but there was an absence of zest on the opening day as there was in Brisbane from England’s most prolific wicket-taker.
Anderson, 35, must be restricted by a shoulder blow sustained in Brisbane. He was at his most animated in a cheek to cheek sledge-fest while Smith was at the crease.
