bbc.comEngland "sent a message" on the opening day of the Ashes that they will compete with Australia, says former captain Michael Vaughan.The tourists recovered from 2-1 to reach 196-4 in Brisbane, thanks to James Vince's 83, Mark Stoneman's 53 and an unbeaten 28 from Dawid Malan."I was concerned that England might get blown away," Vaughan, who captained England to an Ashes series in 2005, told the BBC's Test Match Special.
"I wrote them off."England are widely expected to struggle in Australia, where they have won only once in the past seven tours dating back to 1990-91.Vince, Stoneman and Malan - who had a combined 15 Test caps between them before this series - are making their Ashes debuts."England have sent a message to us, who talk about the game," said Vaughan."More importantly, I hope they've sent a message to themselves. They played with control and they sent the message to everyone watching that they won't be intimidated."As much as you talk about it, it's another thing going out there and doing it."

What will happen on day two[/img]
"If we can get through that without too much damage, Mo can score quickly. The more overs their bowlers bowl, the easier scoring will become."Vaughan added: "Moeen will be the key. He will score, however long he's out there for."One thing England may look at is whether they could have taken off-spinner Nathan Lyon on. That is a tactic England may use."Vince added: "We spoke a bit about trying to get overs in their bowlers' legs. With only three seamers, coming back tomorrow might be hard work."
Did someone mention Stokes?
All-rounder Stokes, who did not travel with the squad after he was arrested for an incident outside a Bristol nightclub in September, sent a video message to his team-mates and the travelling fans before play got under way.This content will not work on your device, please check javascript and cookies are enabled or update your browser
