Australian captain Ricky Ponting (left) and Andrew Strauss are pictured following the opening Ashes Test in Brisbane. Ponting saw his side relinquish a huge first-innings lead and then concede 517 runs for one wicket in the second innings as the match was drawn.

Strauss, meanwhile, put a three-ball duck in the first innings behind him to score a century and also saw second Ashes centuries for both Alastair Cook and Jonathan Trott in his side's second knock.

The third Test gets underway in Adelaide on 3rd December.
