Chris Tremlett puts England in command

England took a firm grip on the third Ashes Test in Perth after bowling Australia out for 268 on the first day.

Chris Tremlett vindicated his selection with three fine wickets as the hosts slumped to 69-5 shortly after lunch.

Mike Hussey, Brad Haddin and Mitchell Johnson all hit fifties before a last-wicket stand of 35 between Peter Siddle and Ben Hilfenhaus boosted the total.

But it was another superb day for England as Andrew Strauss and Alastair Cook reached 29-0 at the close.
