Broad on Lord's honours board
Article posted: 20 May 2012

Stuart Broad continued his fine form on the fourth day of the first Test between England and West Indies at Lord's, achieving a slew of personal records in the process.

Having recorded a career-best seven for 72 in the first innings, Broad became the first England bowler to take ten wickets in a Test at the home of cricket - also the first ten-wicket haul of his career - since Ian Botham in 1978 against New Zealand.

He also joined Botham, Gubby Allen and Keith Miller in achieving a century, five-wickets in an innings and ten in a match.

Broad - who finished with 11 wickets - had to be at his best as West Indies again enjoyed another productive day - first with the bat and then with the ball.

Having resumed on 120/4, the tourists batted for the majority of the day before eventually being bowled out for 345.

England had to bat for the final 20 minutes of the day and lost two wickets in that time.

They resume on 10/2 on Monday, requiring 181 runs to win.
