Nottingham, July 12 — It was a rollercoaster day at the Trent Bridge here Wednesday as 14 wickets fell on the first day after which Australia were left at 75 for four in the first innings against England in the first Ashes Test.
Anderson trapped Chris Rogers lbw and then produced a beauty to get skipper Michael Clarke out for a duck. Steve Smith was batting on 38 along with Phil Hughes on seven.
Earlier, Siddle, who was a doubtful starter due to unimpressive form in the run up to the Ashes, hit back at his critics as he tore apart the English batting with figures of 5-50.
Mitchell Starc got consecutive wickets of Jonny Bairstow and Steven Finn near the death and missed out on a hat-trick when James Anderson bravely left a ball whizzing past his off stump. Starc finished with two for 54.
Left-arm spinner Ashton Agar, 19, made one of the most stunning debuts in Ashes history but went wicketless for 24 runs from his seven overs.
