Ashes 2013: How the England wickets fell on Day One of the 1st Test
Australia stunned the hosts on the opening day of the series
Wednesday 10 July 2013
England were today bowled out on the first day of the first Test. Here, we take a look at how the wickets fell...
27-1: Alastair Cook goes hard at a testing James Pattinson delivery and offers wicketkeeper Brad Haddin a simple catch.
78-2: Joe Root is undone by a superb away swinging yorker from Peter Siddle and loses his off stump.
102-3: Australia snare the prize scalp of Kevin Pietersen who follows a wider one from Siddle and edges to second slip.
124-4: Jonathan Trott's eyes light up when Siddle offers some width outside off stump but a crooked bat diverts the ball back into his wicket.
178-5: Ian Bell becomes Siddle's third victim when the seamer gets one to shape away from the bat, taking the edge on the way to Shane Watson.
180-6: England's Mr Dependable Matt Prior deposits a Siddle long-hop straight to Phil Hughes at cover. Five wickets for the paceman.
213-7: Stuart Broad takes on a short ball but top edges a return catch straight to Pattinson.
213-8: A first success for Mitchell Starc, who cleans up England's last recognised batsman Jonny Bairstow with a full delivery.
213-9: Two in two balls for Starc as Steven Finn nicks his first ball to Haddin then unsuccessfully reviews the verdict.
215 all out: Graeme Swann produces the limpest shot of a limp innings, lobbing Pattinson to a disbelieving Hughes.
