England made a brilliant start to their Ashes campaign today - ripping out the Aussies for just 190 at Lord's.

Steve Harmison took 5-43 as Michael Vaughan's men took a firm grip on the opening Test.

Australia recovered from surrendering five wickets before lunch to claw their way to 175-7.

But Harmison polished off the tail as Ricky Ponting's men were all out inside 41 overs to give home supporters high hopes of England's first Ashes victory at the home of cricket since 1934.
