Video - Broad Delighted With Opening Day

After taking five for 65 on the opening day of the first Ashes Test in Brisbane to reduce Australia to 273 for eight, Stuart Broad says he is delighted with how things went.

Broad dismissed Chris Rogers, David Warner, Shane Watson, Michael Clarke and Mitchell Johnson as England had the better of the opening day.

Broad's success came after a Brisbane newspaper openly attacked him, calling him a 'smug cheat' and urging fans at the Gabba to completely ignore him.

The Nottinghamshire man, who has now taken five Test five-wicket hauls against Australia, was able to put all of that to one side, ensuring that he had the last laugh by walking into his post-match press conference with a copy of the newspaper with him pictured on the front cover.
