- Australia won first Ashes Test by two wickets at Edgbaston
- ‘The way we played, I think it’s validated our style of play’
Brendon McCullum has insisted that England’s thrilling, narrow defeat against Australia in the first Ashes Test has not tarnished his team’s freewheeling approach to the game.
McCulllum said that despite sustaining the third defeat of his 14 matches as red-ball coach he had “had an absolutely amazing time”, and that it was only a bit of bad luck in key moments that denied them victory.
