The first Ashes Test between Australia and England ended in a draw at the Gabba on Monday.

England ensured the match would end in a draw after a massive second innings of 517 for one declared with Alastair Cook scoring an unbeaten 235 and Jonathan Trott 135.

Australia had to bat in the final session to see a remote possibility of a result.

The second Ashes Test begins in Adelaide on Friday.

Match scores: England 260 and 517 for one declared; Australia 481 and 107 for 1.
