Video - 'It Felt Like Every Ball We Could Get A Wicket'
Please note this video will remain available until 21st August 2014, after which time the player above will display the latest available content in its place.
England closed the day on 113 for three but Broad revealed that after India won the toss and chose to bat, early cloud cover gave England a huge advantage.
Knee Surgery For Broad
Broad has confirmed that he will undergo knee surgery after the end of either the Test or One-Day International series against India.
The surgery will keep him out for up to three months and he is hoping of being back to full fitness in time for the 2015 World Cup, which begins in February.
"First of all with the nicks carrying it's a huge advantage," Broad began.
"If you get an error from a batsman you catch it it's out. That was a big advantage for us. It swung really nicely for us.
"You could really tell a difference when the sun came out. When (Ravichandran) Ashwin and (M.S.) Dhoni batted the sun was out and when we batted this evening the zip sort of just goes out the wicket.
"The first hour was as good bowling conditions as you get. It felt like every ball we could get a wicket."
India moved to eight without loss before losing four wickets in 12 balls without adding a run and Broad says he can't remember being involved in a passage of play like it, or at least not so early in a game.
"It happened so quickly for us and all pretty decent balls as well. It's not like the Indian batsmen will be kicking themselves for playing poor shots," he said.
"Certainly Jimmy's two wickets they certainly had to play at.
"It was good bowling and as I say eight for four, I can't remember playing in a Test match we've knocked the top order over like that."
