The Ashes score made for unpleasant Breakfast reading this morning.
England failed to capitalise on their promising start yesterday, with Michael Clarke and Brad Haddin both making centuries, before Australia declared on 570-9.
England's reply was less than confidence building, with Essex batsman Alastair Cook being clean bowled by Mitchell Johnson for just 3.
However, Michael Carberry and Joe Root steadied the ship to some extent to guide England to 35-1 at the close of the play, but which ever way you look at it, Cook and his team now have a mountain to climb to save this Test and perhaps the series.
