Nottingham - England's Stuart Broad took eight wickets as Australia,
after losing the toss, sensationally collapsed to 60 all out on the first day
of the fourth Test at Trent Bridge on Thursday.
Fast-medium bowler Broad's Test-best return of eight for 15
in 9.3 overs, after England won the toss on his Nottinghamshire home ground,
started with two wickets in the first over of the match - including his 300th
Mitchell Johnson (13) and Australia captain Michael Clarke
(10) were the only batsmen to make double-figure scores in an innings that was
wrapped up in just 18.3 overs - the quickest any team has ever been bowled out
in the first innings of a Test - during a scarcely believable 94 minutes' play
Australia's total - with extras the top score on 14 - was
the lowest by either side in an Ashes innings since England were dismissed for
52 at The Oval in 1948.
"It's pretty unbelievable. It's not sunk in,"
Broad told Sky Sports after drawing level with England great Fred Trueman's
career tally of 307 Test wickets.
"We knew Trent Bridge would offer us something but we
had to bowl well and take our catches.
"It was unbelievable. We've given ourselves a chance to
get a big lead now. We just have to graft hard."
At lunch, England were 13 without loss. Adam Lyth was eight
not out and Alastair Cook, the England captain, four not out.
England lead the five-match series 2-1 and victory at Trent
Bridge would see them regain the Ashes.
