Australia's miserable morning in numbers

  • This is only the fourth time in Test history that a team has been bowled out before lunch on the first day
  • 60 is Australia's joint seventh lowest total in Tests, and their second lowest since 1936. (New Zealand still holds the lowest innings total ever - 26 in 1955)
  • Australia's top four faced a combined 12 deliveries

  • Extras top-scored for the first time in an Ashes Test, with 14
