Australia powers ahead

England suffered a calamitous second afternoon as they collapsed from 82-2 to 136 all out to hand Australia total control of the first Test.

Having earlier dismissed the hosts for 295, England lost six wickets for nine runs in 10 extraordinary overs as a rampaging Mitchell Johnson ran amok through the wreckage of their top order.

Only Michael Carberry with 40 offered any meaningful resistance as Johnson and Ryan Harris made the most of some ill-judged strokeplay and feeble defence.

A short while ago, Australia were on 144/2 and lead by 303 runs with 8 wickets remaining.
