Australia looks to have lost the Ashes after being completely embarrassed by England on day one of the fourth Test.

Australia suffered its worst Ashes batting collapse since 1936, as the tourists were dismissed for just 60 runs on day one.

England won the toss and elected to bowl on a green top at Trent Bridge and then went about embarrassing the Australian batting line up.

Australia lost two wickets in the first over, and had lost four wickets after just 15 balls.

When captain Michael Clarke was dismissed for 10, Australia was 7-33.

The top score of the innings was the 'extras' column on 14, with Mitchell Johnson top scoring with the bat with 13, as the tail-enders helped the Aussies pass 50, before being bowled all out for 60 in just 18.3 overs.

The English bowlers, in particular Stuart Broad bowled very well and deserve a lot of credit. However, the Australian batsman were absolutely horrendous. In a must win match, on a pitch with a clear green tinge, a more sensible approach would have been to leave balls outside the off stump and stay in and work on building a big first innings.

But Australia's innings was full of tentative plays outside the off stump and hesitant and errant footwork.

Captain Michael Clarke's dismissal was perhaps the worst, as he slashed at a wide ball that he should have left alone, before edging to Cook at slip.

Clarke later said in his press conference that he too would have bowled first given the conditions, but that sort of batting performance from the tourists is completely unacceptable in any conditions.

Stuart Broad finished with career best figures of 8-15.

Broad's figures are the best by a fast bowler in Ashes history and the fastest five wicket haul in Test cricket history, taking just 19 balls.

Australia was all out in 111 balls, the fewest in the first innings of a Test in history.

Australia then hoped to get early wickets and get the ball moving as much as the English bowlers, however, a combination of better batting and a drier pitch, meant hard work for Australia, with England finishing day one on 4-274, with a lead of 214.

England's innings looked like it was being played on a different pitch, as Australia struggled to trouble a patient and disciplined batting line up. Joe Root haunted Australia once again, as he remains not out on 124, with night watchman Mark Wood not out on two.

Adam Lyth was the first to go when he was caught behind off the bowling off Starc for 14, when the score was 32.

Starc then removed Bell soon after for just one to have the tourists 2-34, to give Australia some hope of regaining some momentum in the match. However, captain Alistair Cook and the in-form Joe Root then went about building a solid partnership, easily surpassing Australia's first innings total, before Cook was trapped in front for 43 by Starc, to make it 3-96.

Root and Johnny Bairstow then built a 173 run partnership, to make Australia's batting performance looks amateurish. Bairstow was eventually removed for 74, but the damage was done, with England well on top and on the way to reclaiming the Ashes.
