Mumbai: The current Ashes series between England and Australia has kicked off with a convincing win for the tourists at Birmingham.

Former Australian skipper steered Australia to the win by making a grand comeback to Test cricket. Smith was the star for the Aussies as he scored centuries in both innings of the Test match, playing a vital role in the team's 251-run victory over England.

Ahead of the second Test of the Ashes, scheduled to take place at Lord's Cricket Ground,  the stadium has posted an archive video of the 1948 Test between the two teams played at the same venue.
