Australia has shown poise and patience for the first time this series, to reach 3-287 at stumps on day one of the fifth Ashes Test.

England won the toss and elected to bowl in overcast conditions.

Australia made one change to the side, with Peter Siddle coming into the team in place of Josh Hazlewood.

Australia had typically played at too many wide balls this series and batted with little patience. However, each batsman, starting with the opening pair of Dave Warner and Chris Rogers, played a brilliant patient innings. Warner and Rogers scored at little over two an over for the first ten overs, as they left nearly everything outside the off stump.

They notched their ninth 100 run opening partnership, before the outgoing Rogers edged to Cook off the bowling of Wood.

Warner then went soon after, making a diligent 85 before he flashed at a ball from Moeen Ali, who dismissed Warner for the fourth time in the series.

Michael Clarke received a guard of honour from the English team as he walked out to middle to meet the soon to be new captain, Steve Smith.

He didn't last lost though unfortunately, as he was dismissed for just 15. Clarke, not convinced that he had edged the ball to keeper Jos Butler, reviewed the decision, but was eventually given out after snicko showed a faint edge, despite nothing showing up on hot spot.

Smith and Voges then put together an unbeaten 101 run partnership to see Australia reach 3-287 to stumps, which was called 10 overs early due to bad light.

Smith is 78 not out, while Voges is unbeaten on 47.

Wood, Stokes and Ali all have one wicket each.
