Former England captain Michael Vaughan hailed Stuart Broad for securing himself a place in Ashes history.

Broad took eight wickets for just 15 runs as Australia were all out for 60 in a dramatic first session of the fourth Test at Trent Bridge - England lead 2-1 in the five-match series.

Sheffield-based Vaughan told BBC's Test Match Special: "Stuart Broad has just put himself into Ashes history.

"We all thought how are they going to cope without Jimmy Anderson and look what has happened.

"You are looking at the manner of the dismissals, Broad, [Steve] Finn and [Mark] Wood put the ball in the right area and I don't think Australia played with any kind of confidence and the message soon spread it was a minefield.

"Their head positions were so far off the line of the ball and the seam bowlers were just licking their lips and waiting for that error and they kept falling for it."

* Australia were blown away for 60 by England in an unforgettable first session at the fourth Ashes Test.

Here we look at some of the key stats.

18.3 overs - the shortest completed first innings in Test history.

14 extras - the first time in Ashes history that sundries have top-scored in an innings.

17 years - since an England player last took eight wicket in an innings (Angus Fraser eight for 53 v West Indies).

4 - number of times a Test team has bowled first and been batting by lunch on day one.

1 - number of England bowlers who have returned better innings figures than Broad. Jim Laker managed it twice in the same Test in 1956.

19 - deliveries sent down by Stuart Broad for his five-wicket haul, joint fewest in history alongside Australia's Ernie Toshack in 1947.

45 - number of Test innings by Chris Rogers before his first Test duck at the hands of Broad.

13 - highest partnership in the Australia innings. Alastair Cook and Adam Lyth had matched it in three overs before lunch.

12 - total deliveries faced by Australia's top four.

79 - years since Australia were bowled out for less by England (58 at Brisbane, 1936).
