NOTTINGHAM, ENGLAND, UK (AUGUST 6, 2015)(ITN – SEE RESTRICTIONS)

1. (SOUNDBITE)(English) ENGLAND BOWLER STUART BROAD SAYS:

“It was just one of those days that you dream of really. Home ground to pick up 300 test wickets and then get a career best. I mean my previous best ever bowling was 7 for 12 against Kimbolton School under-15s so it is nice to get that against Australia I must admit.”

2. (SOUNDBITE)(English) AUSTRALIA CAPTAIN MICHAEL CLARKE SAYS:

“Like I say that is as tough a day as you have as a player, and certainly as a captain. Nothing went right at all, today that’s for sure. And the situation, the series, knowing like I said before the test match it was our grand final. But also as captain you need to be as positive as you can be and understand that it is day one of the test matches, there is still a lot of time left in this test. We have just got to play out of our skins.”

STORY: Stuart Broad described the day as a dream after taking career-best figures of 8-15 to help England bowl out Australia for 60 on the first morning of the fourth Ashes test on Thursday (August 6) .

Broad struck five times in his first four overs, claiming his 300th test victim with the third ball of the match when he had opener Chris Rogers caught at first slip by captain Alastair Cook for a duck.

“It was just one of those days that you dream of really. Home ground to pick up 300 test wickets and then get a career best,” Broad told reporters, adding his previous best was seven for 12 against Kimbolton School under-15s “so it is nice to get that against Australia I must admit.”

Ashen-faced Australia skipper Michael Clarke described the opening day of the fourth Ashes test as one of the toughest he has ever endured as captain.

The touring side were bowled out for 60 in the morning before England scored 274 for four to give themselves the perfect platform from which to secure the victory that would win back the Ashes.

“That is as tough a day as you have as a player, and certainly as a captain. Nothing went right at all, today that’s for sure,” Clarke said. “But also as captain you need to be as positive as you can be and understand that it is day one of the test matches, there is still a lot of time left in this test. We have just got to play out of our skins.”
