Australia sealed a dominant 10-wicket victory over England before lunch on day five of the series-opening Ashes test Monday, having chased 170 runs without loss in a blow to the tourists' pride.Steve Smith's team will head to the second test starting in Adelaide Saturday brimming with confidence after decisively breaking England's resistance at the Gabba.Openers David Warner and Cameron Bancroft, having driven Australia to 114 at stumps on day four, needed only 56 runs to complete the win and rarely looked in danger.Four years after thrashing Alastair Cook's England by 386 runs at the Gabba on the way to a 5-0 whitewash in 2013/14, Australia extended their unbeaten record at the venue against their old foes to 31 years.That drove Australia 26 runs past England's first innings 302 and helped ensure they could still push for the win.
