<b>Anderson makes an early impression</b><br/>
Having chosen to bat first in the first Test at Trent Bridge, England would have been disappointed to only make 215, being bowled out inside 60 overs. However Australia’s fragile looking batting card was soon on the receiving end of a more humiliating demolition.<br/>
After Steven Finn took two wickets in two balls to get things going for the home side, James Anderson removed almost the entirety of the Australian top order as well as picking up the wicket of James Pattinson to leave the tourists reeling at 117/9. While a record 10th wicket stand got them out of trouble on this occasion, Anderson’s figures of 5/85 had set an early benchmark for the series and he followed it up with 5/75 in the second innings.
