The Nottinghamshire man took eight for 15 on his home ground to wipe out the Aussies, taking his 300th Test wicket and drawing level with Fred Trueman on 307 overall scalps in the process.

"It's pretty unbelievable, it's not sunk in," he told Sky Sports Ashes. "All the talk has been about us, making sure we focus on the game.

"We said if we won the toss it doesn't change the game, what we bowled and caught was special. I couldn't believe Ben Stokes' catch."

On his milestone 300th wicket, he added: "I know, it's one of those things; I tried not to think about it but when I went to bed last night I knew I wanted to get it early.

"To get it third ball was a delight. We thought long and hard about planning and have given ourselves a chance to get a big lead."
