Australia's Peter Siddle picked up five wickets on day one of the first Test of the Ashes at Trent Bridge.
Australia seamer Peter Siddle once again enjoyed himself on the opening day of an Ashes series.
Back in November 2010 on day one at the Gabba, Siddle claimed 6-54 including a hat-trick as England were dismissed for 260.
While he didn't quite match those heroics at Trent Bridge, the man who was a champion wood chopper during his youth, again undermined England's decision to bat first, this time with figures of 5-50.
After an uninspiring first spell, Siddle switched ends at Trent Bridge and immediately surprised Joe Root with a yorker that clean bowled the England opener.
Post-lunch, Siddle accounted for Kevin Pietersen and Jonathan Trott - both with balls they could have left alone outside off-stump - and returned later in the afternoon session to get rid of Ian Bell and Matt Prior in successive overs.
England were all out for 215 shortly after tea but the gloss was taken off Siddle's work when Australia slumped to 75-4 in reply by stumps.
