Pat Cummins has taken five wickets in his debut as Australian Test captain.

The Penrith Cricket Club prodigy finished with figures of five for 38 from 13.1 overs.

He walked off The Gabba in Brisbane to a standing ovation, holding the ball up to the crowd.

Australia are in the box seat in the first Test after dismissing England for just 147.

Cummins dismissed Haseeb Hameed, Ben Stokes, Chris Woakes, Ollie Robinson and Mark Wood as part of his haul.

Cummins is on his debut as Australian captain after taking over from Tim Paine late last month.

The Test continues.
