London   West Indies, after losing the toss, were 243 all out against England on the second day of the first Test at Lord's on Friday.

Test debutant and West Indies No 11 Shannon Gabriel was out for a first ball duck on Friday when he edged Stuart Broad straight to second slip Graeme Swann to leave Shivnarine Chanderpaul stranded on his overnight score of 87 not out.

Fast-medium bowler Broad's figures of seven for 72 were his best in Tests, surpassing his six for 46 against India at his Nottinghamshire home ground of Trent Bridge last year.

During the course of this return, Broad, son of former England opening batsman Chris, became only the seventh player in history to both take five or more wickets in a Test innings and score a Test century at Lord's.

Broad made his Test-best score of 169 against Pakistan at Lord's in 2010.

This is the first of a three-Test series.
