LONDON: England were bowled out for 294 in the first innings of the fifth Ashes test at the Oval on Friday, with Australia's Mitchell Marsh claiming his first test five-wicket haul to end the host's chances of building a high score.

Jos Buttler added just six runs to his overnight score before being bowled out on 70 by Australia's Pat Cummins, the top wicket-taker of the series so far.

Medium-pacer Marsh then completed his maiden five-wicket haul in test cricket by bowling out Jack Leach for 21, leaving Stuart Broad stranded at the other end without scoring.

Australia are bidding to secure a 3-1 series victory after retaining the Ashes by winning the fourth test at Old Trafford, meaning England would at best only be able to draw the series 2-2.
