S.C.J. Broad

Stuart Broad had already etched his name on the Lord’s Honours Board for his batting in 2010 thanks to his 169 against Pakistan, however he joined a select group of players to appear for a hundred, five wickets in an innings and ten wickets in a match, when he starred against the West Indies in 2012.

At the time, only Gubby Allen, Keith Miller and Ian Botham had appeared on all three boards and thanks to seven wickets in the first innings and four in the second, Broad added his name to the list.

Broad, as he has done for much of his career, found the perfect partner in Anderson to extract the best of the conditions at the Home of Cricket and claimed the final six wickets of the innings, having earlier dismissed opener Adrian Barath, as the Windies were all out for 243.

A century from Andrew Strauss inspired England to 398 all out but Broad was at it again, taking 4 for 93 and helping dismiss the visitors for 345, setting England fourth innings target of 191, which they reached for the loss of five wickets.
