Youngster Cameron Green has taken his first Test wicket following a brilliant piece of fielding from Josh Hazlewood to send the Gabba into wild celebrations.

Ollie Pope was offering some resistance as he was trotting along with 35 from 78 balls, before he skied a ball from Green.

Hazlewood charged off the boundary and took a stunning catch on the dive in front of him.

Green was thrilled to take his first Test wicket, after five matches, and was mobbed by his teammates in celebration.

Following the wicket, Green was shaking his head in disbelief as commentator Brett Lee said: "He can’t believe it".

Cricket fans around Australia were thrilled to see the talented youngster make the breakthrough with the ball.

Mitchell Starc's magic triggers England collapse

Green's first wicket came after a magical morning from the Australian's, which included Mitchell Starc's dismissal of England opener Rory Burns with the first ball of the Ashes series at the Gabba.

Starc charged in and skittled the stumps as he became the first bowler in 85 years to take a wicket with the first ball as he sent the Gabba in raptures.

Burns was beaten for pace as his leg stump was rattled to put the Aussies right on the front foot on Day 1.

Starc became just the fourth bowler in 140 years of Ashes cricket to take a wicket first ball and the first since 1936.
