Stuart Broad bowled England to a 170-run victory over New Zealand on day four of the first Test.

Chasing a target of 239, New Zealand collapsed to 68 all out in early afternoon with Broad claiming a career-best 7-44.

New Zealand seamer Tim Southee had completed a 10-wicket match haul at the start of the day before the visiting top order capitulated.

They slumped to 29-6 at lunch with Broad making Brendon McCullum his fifth victim with the final ball of a session in which 10 wickets went down.

Broad removed New Zealand's top four within his first five overs, starting with Peter Fulton who edged the Nottinghamshire seamer's third delivery to wicketkeeper Matt Prior.

Hamish Rutherford was clean bowled playing down the wrong line and Ross Taylor followed two balls later, caught by Alastair Cook at first slip.


It became a full-scale crisis for New Zealand at 21-4 when Kane Williamson chipped a catch to Steven Finn at extra cover to gift Broad another wicket.

Still there was time for James Anderson to produce a beauty that Dean Brownlie could only edge through to Prior and Broad added McCullum, lbw upheld on review, to walk off for lunch waving the ball to all corners of the ground safe in the knowledge his name would be going up on the honours' board for the second time.

Southee failed to replicate his heroics with the ball, pulling a short one from Broad to Joe Root in the deep straight after being dropped by Anderson at slip.

BJ Watling defied a knee injury to score 13 and Neil Wagner also made it into double figures but Broad added a seventh scalp in the shape of Bruce Martin - who came in despite suffering from a calf problem and had his middle stump uprooted.

The match finished in comical fashion with Wagner run out for 17 moments after being dropped at fine-leg. New Zealand's final total was the 10th lowest in a Lord's Test.

Anderson, who became the fourth Englishman to take 300 Test wickets on day two, bowled unchanged with Broad throughout an innings lasting 22.3 overs. He finished with 2-23 to go with 5-47 in the first innings.


England resumed on the fourth morning on 180-6, a lead of 205, aiming to press on towards a 300-plus advantage.

But it did not work out that way as Southee struck three times to bag figures of 6-50 and become only the second New Zealander - after Dion Nash in 1994 - to take 10 wickets in a Lord's Test.

Finn was first to go, pushing outside off-stump and unable to bail out before edging low into the safe hands of substitute fielder Martin Guptill at second slip in the first over of the day.

Then England's final specialist batsman Ian Bell, down at eight after spending time off the field with flu over the past two days, poked a catch into the slips to Brownlie.

Graeme Swann never got started before wafting an edge behind and Anderson was last out when he drove Williamson's part-time off-spin straight to cover, leaving Broad stranded on 26 not out off 25 balls.

The two-match series concludes at Headingley from May 24-28.
