Johnson's 7/40 demolishes England on good pitch: T2 D3


Australia 9/570d & 3/132 (39 ov, Warner 83*/117b/1x6 9x4, Anderson 2/19) lead England 172 (68.2 ov, Bell 72*/106b/4x6 9x4, Carberry 60/144b/10x4, JohnSon 17.2-8-40-7) by 530 with 7 2nd inns in hand: T2/5 D3/5 at Adelaide Oval.

Mitchell Johnson,supported by the other members of Australia 's attack. demolished England for a paltry first innings score which has almost certainly prevented them from winning, and perhaps from drawing, the second Test.

Johnson's bowling was fast, furious and penetrating. Watch his wickets on TV or  check out YouTube to see a master bowler's second coming.

Amid the Johnson-led carnage only Michael Carberry and Ian Bell stood firm for a while. Yet neither made the century which their colleagues's failure made imperative if England were going to compete in this match.
