Australia has put themselves in the box-seat to win the first Test of the summer after a stunning performance on day two at the Gabba..
After being on the end of a solid bowling performance from Alastair Cook’s men and finding themselves behind the eight ball, the Australians fought back excellently to inflict England with one of the worst batting collapses seen for more than 10 years.
Mitchell Johnson, who was criticised was being a potential liability for his side before a ball was bowled, showed what is capable of when in-form and confident.
Despite the conditions not offering anything in the way of swing or seam, the left-hander bullied the England batting line-up on his way to earning figures of 4-61 off 17.
For all of the hostility and fire from Johnson’s end in the afternoon session, came the guile from spinner Nathan Lyon, who also was a chance of being overlooked for the first game of the series.
At one stage being on a hat-trick after getting rid of Ian Bell and Matt Prior in as many balls, Lyon showed there will be enough bounce and turn in the Gabba deck to keep he, and English off-spinner, Graeme Swann in the game, for the remaining three days.
England’s first innings of just 136, which was greatly helped but a spirited innings of 32 by Stuart Broad at the death, continued the side’s recent form of batting badly in the first innings of a series.
Australia then further turned the screws when David Warner and Chris Rogers then turned the screws more with a composed partnership of 65 in the final 25 overs of play in the day, as the home side built an imposing lead of 224 runs with all 10 wickets in hand.
