Australian batsmen looked a little jaded on the opening day. In comparison a day later, England batsmen looked in complete tatters when it was their turn to bat in the 1st Ashes Test, at Brisbane.

Brad Haddin, with 78 from the opening day, led Aussies in the morning session. His eventual run-out on 94 ended the hosts' innings on 295.
England's reply was disastrous right from the start.
Skipper Alastair Cook was the first to fall after he scored 13. He was removed by Ryan Harris.
Mitchell Johnson - the hero of the day - then came in and bulldozed his through England's famed batting line-up.
He is seen celebrating the wicket of the other opener - Michael Carberry (40), who was one of his four wickets.
Kevin Pietersen too could not rescue England's innings and he scored 18 before succumbing to Harris.
Spinner Nathan Lyon too was part of the action and is seen celebrating one of his two wickets.
He claimed Ian Bell and Matt Prior.
Even in-form Jonathan Trott could not do much as his 10 runs was just a marginal addition to a paltry total of 136.
The Aussies were not willing to give anything back to England and by close of play, openers David Warner (in pic) and Chris Rogers had scored 65.
