|London, May 18(ANI): Stuart Broad became only the seventh player in history to both take five wickets in a Test innings at Lord's and score a Test century at the ground after he ended the first day with figures of six for 72 against the West Indies on Thursday.
Broad's best batting knock of 169 in a Test match against Pakistan was also achieved at Lord's two years ago.
He is the fifth English player to get his name on both Lord's batting and bowling honours boards, following in the paths of Ian Botham and Andrew Flintoff.
Broad said it was a huge honour for him to follow in the footsteps of Botham and Flintoff, but claiming nine wickets on the first day was much more important.
"To follow Fred (Flintoff) and Beefy (Botham) in the England dressing room is a huge honour but more importantly we got nine wickets on the first day," Sports24 quoted Broad, as saying.
"But we talked at the start that Lord's is never like that and it's a bit of a patience game," he added.
West Indies ended the day at 243-9, with Shivnarine Chanderpaul still batting at 87 not out. (ANI)
