Australia had the most English of batting collapses and looked completely confused about it

England won the toss at Trent Bridge on Thursday morning and elected to bowl as they looked to win the fourth Test and secure Ashes victory.

A risky move, you may think. But then the Australians went on to lose their first five wickets in just 25 balls - quicker than any other side has done in the history of Test cricket - as Stuart Broad ripped through their batting line-up to claim eight wickets.

They were eventually bowled out for 60 and it's fair to say they looked utterly confused at having the kind of batting collapse that's only ever meant to happen to England...
