Australia were bowled out for just 60 runs in their first innings at Trent Bridge this morning... here is how the wickets fell.

4/1 - Rogers c Cook b Broad 0

Stuart Broad takes his 300th Test scalp with the third ball of the morning. He goes round the wicket to Rogers, who nicks in the channel outside off and bags a first duck in his 46th innings.

10/2 - Smith c Root b Broad 6

Broad makes a second breakthrough in the first over, squaring up Steve Smith, who sends a thick edge sailing comfortably through to the waiting Joe Root at third slip.

10/3 - Warner c Buttler b Wood 0

Mark Wood celebrates his promotion to new ball duties by picking off the dangerous Warner without scoring. Warner offers the bat away from his body and an inside edge nestles in Jos Buttler’s gloves.

15/4 - Marsh c Bell b Broad 0

Shaun Marsh, recalled for his brother Mitch, has an unhappy return to the Test stage as he unwisely attempts to drive a full ball from Broad and merely warms Ian Bell’s hands at second slip.

21/5 - Voges c Stokes b Broad 4

A sensational one-handed catch at fifth slip from Stokes continues the Australian procession. His full-length dive called to mind Andrew Strauss’ effort at Edgbaston in 2005, but given the angles this may even have been better.

29/6 - Clarke c Cook b Broad 10

An absolute abomination of a stroke from Australia’s under-fire captain. Flashes negligently to a ball he should have left and a head-high catch whistles into the hands of an ecstatic Alastair Cook. Five for Broad.

33/7 - Nevill b Finn 2

Steven Finn takes just eight deliveries to get into the action, taking advantage of a huge gap between bat and pad to castle the Australia wicketkeeper.

46/8 - Starc c Root b Broad 1

Broad feeds England’s hungry slip cordon again after drinks, Mitchell Starc responding to a tester outside off stump by offering a lazy edge that is pouched with ease by Root.

47/9 - Johnson c Root b Broad 13

More catching practice for Root at third slip, Broad continuing to pound out a length that Australia apparently find both irresistible and unplayable.

60 all out - Lyon c Stokes b Broad 9

Broad bags career-best figures of eight for 15 as Nathan Lyon squirts the ball to gully, where Stokes has the simple task of bagging the catch.
