Stuart Broad ensured England got their Summer of cricket off to a winning start as he demolished the New Zealand batting line up, dismissing them for a paltry 68, giving England victory by 170 runs at Lords.

New Zealand, chasing 239 for victory, were left in tatters at 29 for six at lunch. Broad removed Peter Fulton (1), Hamish Rutherford (9), Ross Taylor (0), Kane Williamson (6) and Brendon McCullum (8) in the space of 32 balls to put England on the brink of victory.

Broad eventually finished with 7/44 in 11 overs a Test best and James Anderson with 2/23.

England 232 and 213 (Root 71, Trott 56, Southee 6-50) beat New Zealand 207 and 68 (Broad 7/44) by 170 runs
