Australia spinner Nathan Lyon made light work of England's batting line-up on Monday as the hosts were bowled out for 146 in their second innings at Edgbaston in Birmingham, losing the first Ashes test by 251 runs to give the visitors a 1-0 lead in the series. Chasing the second-highest successful run chase in Ashes history (398), England first-innings centurion Rory Burns fell first in the second over of the day for 11. The highest successful run chase ever was Australia getting 404 at Headingley in 1948.
