The Ashes: Records Tumble on a Remarkable Day in Trent Bridge

Stuart Broad was on a roll for England on Thursday as he took career-best eight wickets to rip Australia apart for 60 all out in what turned out be a record-breaking day at Trent Bridge. Here’s how England’s heist sent records tumbling at Nottingham.

The 8 for 15 demolition at Trent Bridge on Thursday was Stuart Broad’s best show in a Test innings, overtaking his previous best figures of 7 for 44 that came at Lord’s.(Broad Joins 300 Club)

Broad became the fifth England bowler to take 300 wickets. James Anderson leads that list with 413 wickets.(Scorecard)

The right-arm pacer’s five-for today was the first time an England bowler took five wickets before lunch on Day 1 of a Test since 1913.(Blog)

One of Australia’s Worst

The no-show reminded Australia of 2011 when they were bowled out for 47 by South Africa. The 60 all out lists at No. 7 in Australia’s lowest Test totals.

Five Down in no Time

Thursday was first time in Test history that the first five wickets of the match fell within 25 balls of the start.

Shortest Ever First Innings

Australia survived just 18.3 overs, which counts to 111 balls. It is the least number of balls or overs a team has lasted in the first innings of a Test.

Rogers Among the Ducks

Rogers registered the first naught of his career. Before this, the Australia opener had played 45 innings without a duck.
