EnglandTest

London, Aug 06 : England fast bowler Stuart Broad wreaked havoc on Australia top order batsmen on Thursday as he joined the coveted 300-wicket club on the first day of the fourth Ashes Test at his home ground Trent Bridge.

The 29-year-old seamer became the fifth England bowler to achieve this milestone. He claimed seven wickets as the tourists were reeling at 54-9 in the 16th over.

Mitchell Johnson top scored with 13 and captain Michael Clarke made 10 as rest of the batsmen failed to cross the double digit mark.

Chris Rogers, David Warner and Shaun Marsh trudged back to the pavilion after failing to open their respective accounts.

Mark Wood and Steven Finn provided substantial support as they claimed one wicket each.

Broad also joins the list of stalwarts, which features Fred Trueman, Bob Willis, Sir Ian Botham and his team-mate James Anderson in England’s 300 club.

England are leading 2-1 in the Ashes and will seal the five-match series if they win at Nottingham. (ANI)
