England’s Stuart Broad became just the fifth bowler to take 600 Test wickets when he dismissed Australia’s Travis Head in the fourth Ashes Test at Old Trafford on Wednesday. 


By having Head caught in the deep for 48, the paceman joined Sri Lanka’s Muttiah Muralitharan (800), Australia’s Shane Warne (708), England’s James Anderson (688) and India’s Anil Kumble (619) in an exclusive club.

Earlier, England won the toss and put Australia in. At the time of going to press, the visitors were 283 for seven on Day One. Marnus Labuschagne (51) Mitchell Marsh (51) were the principal scorers for Australia,

Broad struck an early blow when he had Usman Khawaja lbw for three to leave Australia 15-1. He had to wait until his 11th over for the landmark wicket, with left-hander Head hooking a bouncer and Joe Root holding a low catch. 

Head’s exit left Australia on 189-5 as England, 2-1 down with two Tests to play, chase the win they need to maintain their hopes of regaining the Ashes.
