81.1
Catch
OUT! Caught & Bowled. Johnson to Anderson. Back of a length, down leg side on the back foot working, leading edge back to bowler, fielded by Johnson. Anderson tries to work the ball off his hip only to find the leading edge and lob the ball back to Johnson.

England started the match well reducing Australia to 132-6 in the first innings but after that it was one way traffic. Their batsmen never came to terms with the bounce and pace of Ryan Harris and Mitchell Johnson. The off spinner Nathan Lyon also contributed vital wickets in both innings.

Australia gain their first Ashes test victory since Perth 2010 and they will celebrate wildly. They had big contributions from David Warner and Michael Clarke in their second innings to set up the huge margin of victory but they really got their foot on English throats when they took six wickets for nine runs on the second afternoon. The series moves on to Adelaide and England are the team with the headaches.
