Cricket Autographs and Memorabilia were high on the list for many fans attending the 1st Test at Lords yesterday.
Stuart Broad supported by James Anderson devastated the Tourist batting as they were dismissed for a mere 68 runs in their 2nd innings with England securing their first Test victory of the season on a 170 run lead.
Only two Kiwi players - Neil Wagner and BJ Watling - made double figures as New Zealand claimed tenth position for the lowest scoring in a Test at Lords.
Tim Southee, 6 wicket for 50 runs should have left the Kiwis in good standing, but this was enough to fire Stuart Broad into action, claiming 5 wickets from 35 deliveries before lunch making up for his disappointing tour of India during the winter.
Stuart Broad’s final tally 7/44 was reminiscent of his fine bowling against the West Indies also at Lords (7/72) in May 2012, on that occasion Anderson was also prevalent dismissing number 2 &3 Powell and Edwards.
Stuart Broad cricket memorabilia was particularly sought after as you would imagine.
The 2nd Investec Test is at Headingley on Friday 24 May not to be missed with the momentum England now have, it might be worth a punt.
