Second Ashes Test, Adelaide
Australia 245 v England 1-0 (day one, stumps)
Australia were bowled out for 245 on day one of the second Ashes Test in Adelaide on Friday
England made the perfect start, with Simon Katich run out and Ricky Ponting going out first ball as the tourists enjoyed huge success on the first day, with James Anderson taking 4-51.
Shane Watson (51) and Michael Hussey (93) led an Aussie fightback after a dreadful start, while Brad Haddin hit 56.
But Graeme Swann took two wickets as England cleaned up the tail end before batting briefly and finishing on 1-0 at stumps.
England, who had the momentum going into the game following their second-innings score of 517-1 declared last week in Brisbane, named an unchanged side, while Australia dropped Mitchell Johnson and Ben Hilfenhaus, with Doug Bollinger and Ryan Harris replacing them.
Ponting won the toss and electing to bat looked to have been the right decision in good conditions and on a flat wicket.
But inside three overs, Australia had made their worst start to a Test innings in 60 years.
England only faced one over before the close of play and will now go into day two looking to take a big lead into the second innings
It's advantage England in Adelaide.
