Mitchell Johnson leaves England in disarray
England are staggering on the brink of a second humiliating defeat in two Tests after fast bowler Mitchell Johnson rampaged through their out-of-form batting once again.
Johnson took 7 for 40, including a wonderful spell of 5 for 16 in five overs after lunch, as England were rattled out for a feeble 172 to concede a first-innings deficit of 398 runs.
Only Ian Bell, with an unbeaten 72, and Michael Carberry offered any resistance as their team-mates either tossed their wickets away or were simply unable to cope with Johnson's fearsome pace.
