It took Nottinghamshire fast bowler, Stuart Broad just one ball to wrap up the West Indies innings at Lord’s on day two of the first Test with the visitors all out for 243.

Broad took seven wickets in a Test match for the first time finishing with figures 7-72.

He had Shannon Gabriel caught by county teammate Graeme Swann for a duck leaving Shivnarine Chanderpaul stranded on 87 not out.

Yesterday, Broad became one of only five Englishman to have their names etched on both the batting and bowling honours board at Lord’s and only the seventh in history following a century against Pakistan at headquarters in 2010.

At 25, Broad takes his place as the youngest to achieve the feat alongside Gubby Allen, Ray Illingworth, Ian Botham and Andrew Flintoff.
