Adelaide (Australia) (AFP) - Mitchell Johnson shattered England's hopes of a series-levelling win in the second Test with one of the great Ashes bowling spells as Australia took an iron grip on Saturday. Johnson reprised his man-of-the-match performance in the 381-run first Gabba Test win with a destructive seven for 40 that strong-armed England out of the game and Australia onto the cusp of a two-nil series lead with three Tests to play. Australia, who declared at 570 for nine, once again skittled the Ashes holders cheaply for 172. England have yet to score beyond 180 after being dismissed for 136 and 179 in Brisbane.
