Surprised no one has mentioned that this is our first Ashes win in the third test of a series since Headingley 81.

You're welcome.

Having third tests at Old Trafford might have something to do with it.

It's also the first Ashes series to produce alternating winners of the opening 3 Tests since 1932/3. That also went 'Eng-Aus-Eng'....let's hope the final score turns out to be the same as that contest, but with considerably less acrimony.

A few records have gone this morning.

Stuart Broad became the first England player to take a 5 wicket haul before lunch since SF Barnes in 1913.

Stuart Broad took a 5 wicket haul in 19 balls to equal the record for the fastest MF.

Stuart Broad is the 5th England player to take 300 test wickets.

Chris Rogers last 45 innings before his first test match duck. He was the Record holder for most innings without a test match duck.

Broad's 8/15 best figures at Trent Bridge and 60 the lowest score by any team at Trent Bridge.

Australia have been bowled out for the fewest number of balls in a test match.

Batting like that, it's no wonder.

How often has someone scored a century on day one when batting second?

I'd imagine somebody has done at some time, but I'm not going to be the one to check.

Thanks. I was idly wondering earlier whether there were any analyses between those and this one in Ashes cricket.

60 Australia's score in the first innings, their seventh-lowest score in Test history, and their second-lowest in the last 79 years. The only time they were bowled out for less in this period was against South Africa - 47, in Cape Town, 2011.

25 Number of balls (or 4.1 overs) it took Australia to lose their first five wickets, the quickest any team has lost five wickets since 2002 (prior to which ball-by-ball data is not available).

111 Number of balls (or 18.3 overs) Australia lasted. It was the shortest-ever first innings of a Test. It was also Australia's third-shortest Test innings. Their shortest lasted 99 balls (or 12.3 eight-ball overs), in Brisbane in 1936. Thirteen out of Australia's 14 shortest Test innings have come against England.

2 Wickets taken by Stuart Broad in the first over of the match. There have only been two previous instances, since 2002, of a bowler taking two or more wickets in the first over of a Test match - Irfan Pathan against Pakistan (2006) and Chris Cairns against England (2002).

0 Chris Rogers made the first duck of his Test career, in his 46th innings. If Rogers had not scored a duck during this Ashes series, after which he is set to retire, he would have had the longest Test career without a single duck, a record currently held by Australia's Jim Burke (44 innings).

5 Number of England bowlers who have taken 300-plus Test wickets. Broad became the fifth bowler to join the list when he took the wicket of Chris Rogers with his third ball. The other four bowlers are James Anderson (413), Ian Botham (383), Bob Willis (325) and Fred Trueman (307).

6.1 Overs bowled by England when Stuart Broad picked up his fifth wicket. Since 2002 (prior to which ball-by-data is not available), no bowler before Broad had picked up more than three wickets in the first 6.1 overs of an innings.

8 Number of batsmen that Broad dismissed caught during the first innings, the joint-most for any bowler. There have been five instances in Tests of a bowler dismissing eight batsmen caught. The last bowler to do this was also English - Angus Fraser against West Indies in 1994. Interestingly, all eight of Broad's dismissals were not just caught, but caught at slip.

3 Number of hundreds scored by Joe Root in Ashes Tests, making him the youngest England batsman (age - 24) to score three Ashes hundreds. The only other England batsman to score two Ashes hundreds at the age of 24 is Len Hutton.

0 Number of Australia's top-seven batsmen who scored more than 10 runs during the first innings. Clarke was the highest run-scorer with exactly 10 runs. The last instance when each of Australia's top-seven batsmen were dismissed for 10 runs or less in an Ashes Test was 79 years ago, in Brisbane in 1936. This has happened to Australia five times in all Tests, four of those against England.

8-15 Broad's figures in the first innings of this Test, the best of his career. He has two previous seven-wicket hauls, against New Zealand (2013) and West Indies (2012), both at Lord's.

14 Number of times that extras have top-scored in a Test innings (in all-out innings). This is third such instance for Australia, with the last occasion being against West Indies in 1991. England conceded 14 extras which constituted 23% of Australia's score of 60.

9 Number of times Broad has taken six or more wickets in an innings, the third-most for any England pace bowler, and the sixth-most overall for any pace bowler.

1.87 The average runs per wicket conceded by Broad in the first innings of this Test. He took eight wickets and conceded only 15 runs. Broad is the first bowler to concede less than two runs per wicket when taking a five-wicket haul against Australia.

5 Number of times that three (or more) out of Australia's top-four batsmen have scored ducks - Rogers (0), Warner (0), Smith (6) and Shaun Marsh (0). Each of those five instances have been against England, with the last coming 65 years ago, in Brisbane in 1950.

1 Number of England bowlers who have returned better figures than Broad during an Ashes Test - Jim Laker. Broad's figures of 8-15 are next only to Jim Lakers figures of 10-53 and 9-37 at Old Trafford in 1956.

43 Alastair Cook's score in the first innings, his second-highest score at Trent Bridge. Cook's highest score from 15 innings at Trent Bridge is 50, his only half century at this venue. Today was the third time that he made exactly 43 at Trent Bridge, where he only averages 21.85.

Broad passes the great Fred Trueman, just Bob, Sir Ian and Jimmy ahead of him now.
