Peter Siddle took a hat-trick on his 26th birthday and a Test-best 6-54 as England’s batting was dismantled on the opening day of the first Ashes Test.

England had reached 197-4 before Siddle had Alastair Cook caught at slip for 67, and then removed Matt Prior and Stuart Broad with his next two balls.

Ian Bell hit out, making a fine 76, but England were all out for a modest 260.

Shane Watson and Simon Katich safely negotiated six overs as Australia replied with 25-0 in Brisbane.
