Opta looks at the Second Ashes Test in detail

After weeks of anticipation, the talking finally stopped and the cricket got under way in Brisbane last week. Despite an uncharacteristically slow Gabba wicket, the action was as fierce as we’ve come to expect between these two sides and it promises to be another thrilling Ashes series.

The 1st three days of the opening test were evenly poised, before Australia found dominance to storm to a 10-wicket win – and a 1-0 lead in the series.

Using Opta’s unparalleled granular data – we are the Official Data Partners to both the ECB and Cricket Australia – and our historic database, we’ve taken a closer look at events in Brisbane and look forward to what we can expect in the second test at the Adelaide Oval.
