Stuart Broad, Mark Wood and Steven Finn were  were among the wickets as they thoroughly destroyed the Australian top order without breaking much sweat. Broad wasted little time in picking up his 300th wicket as he did so in the third ball of the innings to dismiss Chris Rogers for duck, which happened to be his first ever duck in Tests. Broad went on to become the first player to pick up five wickets before lunch on Day One of a Test match. Steven Smith was the next to go after he fished outside off to give Borad his second wicket. It was then Wood’s turn to make his mark in the match. He got rid of David Warner for a duck, caught behind. Live Blog: England vs Australia, The Ashes 2015, 4th Test Day 1
