Australia's Usman Khawaja bats during day one of the first Ashes Test cricket match. Since making his return from injury, Khawaja also fell to pressure from the English bowlers just like Warner, Cameron Bancroft.

England's Stuart Broad celebrates after the dismissal of Australia's David Warner. Warner could only notch two runs off 14 balls.
