England won the toss and invite Australia to bat first, Stuart Broad set the trend for getting wickets in the morning of first day of ashes 4th test and pass the milestone of getting 300 test wicket, and become the 5th English bowler who chase this.

Stuart Broad added “My previous best-ever bowling was 7-12 against Kimbolton School under-15s so it was nice to get that against Australia I must admit,” “I keep looking up at the scoreboard and it doesn’t look real to me. It hasn’t sunk in, but it’s a bit of a freak day, the kind you work hard for, train for. You want those days when it all works for you and today was one of those days.
