Windies all out for 243

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.

    I see that useless bowler Broad only took 7 wickets, clearly vaughn doesn't know what he's talking about when he states that England have one of the best bowling attacks in the world, can't wait for the upcoming series, there can be no arguments who is the true No1 test side in the world after that, I am dreaming of course, if England win it will be all the sour grapes of SA "B" team and all that crap.
