AB makes a huge "Dhoni" Comparison with Bazball, and former opener Sehwag reveals the "New Mr. Cool."

The first test of the Ashes series saw a thrilling end as the Australia cricket team defeated England by two wickets at Edgbaston. While chasing the target of 281 runs, Pat Cummins, who is the captain of Team Australia, played an important knock. Although Australia lost the important wicket of Usman Khawaja, Cummins remained composed, forging partnerships with Alex Carey and Nathan Lyon to help the team to a famous win.

The former cricketers on Twitter were also excited with the quality of cricket that was seen in the first Ashes Test Match, and immediately after Cummins hit the winning runs, former India opener Virender Sehwag praised both of the teams while also stating that it was "one of the best" Tests he had seen in recent times.

Sehwag wrote on his Twitter handle, "What a Test Match. One of the best I have seen in recent times. Test cricket is the best cricket. It was a gutsy decision by England to declare just before closing on Day 1, especially considering the weather. But Khawaja was outstanding in both innings, and @patcummins30 is the new Mr. Cool in Test cricket. What an inning under pressure, and that partnership with Lyon was one to remember for a long time."
