Stats: Manic morning at Trent Bridge


Day one of the fourth Ashes Test at Trent Bridge was manic and thrilling, for an England fan. Australia were not as pleased, as swing and poor batting dominated before lunch, the Aussies removed before the first break.

Here are a few relevant stats from the session in Nottingham, with Stuart Broad dominating the headlines.

300 – Broad's milestone. He removed Chris Rogers and Steve Smith in the first over.

307 – Broad's wickets. He equalled Fred Trueman's tally, and is fourth on the list for England.

8/15 – Broad's figures. Beating his best of 7/44, and also the best figures before lunch on day one of a Test, ever.

19 – Balls for Broad's five-fer. The joint-fewest ever. The decorative paint wasn't even off the ball yet.

60 – Runs made. Australia were all out in the 19th over. Their worst innings is 36 all out, so at least they avoided that.

111 – Deliveries Oz faced. The least balls faced to be all out in the first innings of a Test.

14 – Top score. That was not by a batsman, but by the Extras column. It's the first time the extras have been top in an Ashes innings.

46 – Rogers' run breaks. He had gone 45 innings without his first duck, but got one here. The record is 78, by AB de Villiers.

3 – Ducks. All in the top four. Only Smith avoided it.

8 – Catches in the slips. Considering the cordon was six people long most of the time, this is not surprising. One wicket was bowled, and one caught behind.
