NOTTINGHAM: England hero Stuart Broad described the domination of Australia at Trent Bridge as the best day of his career, but said the Ashes are not over.

Broad took a career-best 8-15 as England 2-1 leaders in the series bowled out Australia for 60.

They then reached 274-4, with Joe Root scoring 124, by the close of a stunning opening day of the fourth Test.

“It was one of those days you dream of,” he said. “It’s been the perfect day but it starts again tomorrow.

“A 214-run lead after day one is probably as powerful a performance as I’ve ever seen or been involved in.”
