Ugly truth of latest Ashes disaster

Previous generations had the art of making ugly hundreds at tough times.

Now Australia is just plain ugly as yet another Ashes series slips away.

Another collapse, this time in front of a first-day crowd of 21,473 at Perth’s WACA Ground, has left Australia well behind in the third Test. Late in the last session, Australia was bowled out for 268 and England faced 12 overs to finish the day at 29 for no loss.

Another strong performance from home-town hero Mike Hussey (61), who now has 401 runs in the series at better than a hundred, and combative Brad Haddin (53) offered the only early substance.

Mitchell Johnson chimed in with an impressive cameo (62) and became involved in a war of words with Jimmy Anderson. The fast bowler turned to his opposing paceman in exaggerated celebration after bowling Ryan Harris (3).
