Ashes: England fold up for 136 in reply to Australia’s 295
Pacemen Mitchell Johnson and Ryan Harris led the carnage to skittle England for 136 on Friday, giving Australia a 159—run first innings lead in the opening Ashes test.
Johnson took 4—61 and Harris returned 3—28 as England were bowled out in 52.4 overs including a collapse of six wickets for nine runs in the middle, less than five hours after dismissing Australia for 295 on the second morning at the Gabba.
Opener Michael Carberry was the top scorer for England in his second test with 40 and Stuart Broad, the pantomime villain for the local crowd, scored 32 to go with his six-wicket haul earlier in the match.
Australia: 295 all out (Brad Haddin 94, Mitchell Johnson 64; Stuart Broad 6—81)
England: 136 all out (Michael Carberry 40, Stuart Broad 32; Mitchell Johnson 4—61, Ryan Harris 3—28)
