Stuart Broad was "enjoying a glass of red wine" when his parents visited him after he took 8-15 in an extraordinary display of bowling on the first day of the fourth Test of the Ashes. "The minute's applause for Clive Rice really settled him down," said his father Chris Broad. When asked if it was the greatest day for English cricket, Mr Broad pointed to other special days such as "Jim Laker taking 19 wickets in a Test match." Broad took a career-best 8-15 as England - 2-1 leaders in the series - bowled out Australia for 60. They then reached 274-4, with Joe Root scoring 124, by the close of a stunning opening day of the fourth Test.
