England complete innings win in Adelaide Test

England bowled out Australia for 304 to win the second Test in Adelaide in emphatic fashion by an innings and 71 runs and take a 1-0 lead in the Ashes.

The expected deluge of rain failed to save the Australians as they resumed in warm sunshine 137 runs behind on 238-4.

After Michael Hussey fell for 52 in the sixth full over, James Anderson struck twice with successive deliveries.

Graeme Swann took the final wicket an hour before lunch by bowling Peter Siddle to finish with figures of 5-91.

It was an exceptional performance from England, with almost everything going according to plan from the first over of the match, when Jonathan Trott ran out Simon Katich and Ricky Ponting was caught at slip off the next ball.
