NOTTINGHAM: England fast bowler Stuart Broad claimed his 300th test wicket with the third ball of the fourth Ashes test against Australia at Trent Bridge today.

The 29-year-old had opener Chris Rogers caught at first slip by captain Alastair Cook for a duck.

Broad, playing his 83rd test, became the fifth England bowler to take 300 test wickets after fellow pacemen James Anderson, Ian Botham, Bob Willis and Fred Trueman.

Anderson, who tops the list with 413 victims, is missing the fourth test due to a side injury he sustained in the last match in Birmingham.

Broad soon moved to 301 wickets when he had Steve Smith caught by Joe Root in the slips with the last ball of the over as Australia slumped to 10-2.

England, 2-1 up in the series, made one change from the team that won the last test at Edgbaston by eight wickets, fast bowler Mark Wood replacing the injured James Anderson.

England: Alastair Cook (captain), Adam Lyth, Ian Bell, Joe Root, Jonny Bairstow, Ben Stokes, Jos Buttler, Moeen Ali, Stuart Broad, Mark Wood, Steven Finn

Australia: Michael Clarke (captain), Chris Rogers, David Warner, Steven Smith, Shaun Marsh, Adam Voges, Peter Nevill, Mitchell Johnson, Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood, Nathan Lyon
