England skittled for just 147 by Australia in dramatic start to Ashes series

The Guardian says It was a first day in the job that seemed written in the southern stars for Pat Cummins, Australia’s newly-crowned Test captain claiming a five-wicket haul, watching his opposite number trudge off after a nine-ball duck and England’s batsmen left in a state of general bewilderment.
