England slumped to a humiliating 381-run defeat in the first Test as Mitchell Johnson once again blew their fragile batting away.

Facing a target of 561 to win, or two days to bat through for the draw, England disintegrated from 142 for 4 to 151 for 8 and then 179 all out late on the fourth day to go behind in an Ashes series for the first time in seven years.

Only captain Alastair Cook with 65 offered any prolonged resistance as his side lost four wickets for nine runs in 18 frantic mid-afternoon minutes at the Gabba.
