Australia have won the first Ashes Test, beating England by 251 runs at Edgbaston having been in big trouble on day one.
England resumed on day five with all ten wickets intact in the theoretical pursuit of 398. However, four wickets before lunch ensured that it would be only a matter of time on the final day.
Rory Burns was the first man out, cramped by a Pat Cummins short ball, before off-spinner Nathan Lyon took control. Jason Roy was next out, bowled charging down the pitch in a brainless dismissal.
When Joe Denly and Joe Root were then both caught close to the wicket with the ball turning, it looked like the game was up for England.
Cummins then removed Jos Buttler and Jonny Bairstow and Lyon shifted last realistic hope Ben Stokes in a dispiriting first half hour after lunch.
Lyon, who passed 350 Test wickets in the innings, soon sealed the deal. Australia were delighted, having been 122/8 on day one, and go into Lord's in fine fettle.
