Nottingham - James Anderson took five wickets for the second time in the match as England just held their nerve to win the first Ashes Test against Australia by 14 runs at Trent Bridge on Sunday.

England, in a Test full of controversial umpiring decisions, had though first to challenge Pakistani on-field umpire Aleem Dar's original not out verdict.

Scores:

Australia 280 (A.Agar 98, P.Hughes 81 not out, S.Smith 53, J.Anderson 5-85) &

296 (B.Haddin 71, C.Rogers 52, S.Watson 46, J.Anderson 4-73)

England 215 (J.Trott 48, P.Siddle 5-50) &

375 (I.Bell 109, S.Broad 65, K.Pietersen 64, A.Cook 50)
