Clarke ends the day unbeaten on 48, Haddin has survived some torrid moments to get to seven.
Difficult to say who's on top at this stage but I would like to believe this is a decent score. A score of 400 will be a good one because scoring quickly hasn't been the easiest thing to do. But England would believe, taking wickets hasn't been easy either and they have done well to take five.
How much the remaining five wickets yield for Australia could be crucial for how the rest of the game goes - a capitulation for 50-75 runs is worst for the home team while another 150-175 runs from here will put them into the driver's seat.
Three dropped catches from England and that has cost them the chance to take the honours on the first day. Root's drop was a difficult but both Panesar and Carberry should have held on to them most times.
Broad got two wickets, while Anderson, Monty and Swann grabbed one apiece.
Half-centuries for Watson, Rogers and Bailey, with none of them going on to get a big one, which will be a bit of a bother for the coach.
Back tomorrow with the second day's play then, have a good day ahead!
Shot, caressed it through straighter mid-on for a four!
Clarke sees the over-pitched delivery and covers for the spin, drives it through to the fence and gets four.
A defensive stroke last ball ends the day for Australia at 5/273 in 91 overs.
Right, so we are into the 91st over of the day. Two spinners in a line-up allows for such luxuries.
