Stuart Broad has become only the second English bowler to reach 400 Test wickets.

Broad followed his team-mate, and all-time national leading wicket-taker, James Anderson to the feat when he had Tom Latham clipping a catch to midwicket at the start of the final session on day one of the first Test against New Zealand in Auckland.

His notable achievement, however, was overshadowed by England’s collapse to 58 all out in New Zealand’s inaugural day-night Test.

By the close of play the hosts had reached 175 for three for a lead of 117, captain Kane Williamson leading the way with an unbeaten 91.
