Johnson leads 381-run drubbing of England by Oz in first Ashes Test

Brisbane, Nov 24 : Australia have achieved an impressive 381-run victory in the first Ashes Test at Brisbane after they bowled out England for 179 runs while they were chasing a target of 561.

Mitchell Johnson took five wickets for the hosts as the visitors tumbled out after being placed at 130/4 at one stage, with the rain affecting play in between.

Joe Root (26 not out) tried to save the match from being finished on day four with some careful batting but as it turned out, he ran out of partners.

Before, England captain Alastair Cook had played a careful 65-run knock, which led many to believe that the Test match could go into day five.
