NOTTINGHAM: Stuart Broad became the 12th England bowler to take a hat-trick in tests when his late innings burst against India brought the hosts back into the second test at Trent Bridge on Saturday.
Broad took the wickets of India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Harbhajan Singh and then Praveen Kumar on his home ground. India slipped from 267 for four to 288 all out in the evening session on the second day.
Dhoni was caught at second slip for five, Harbhajan was lbw first ball though his reaction suggested an incorrect decision from umpire Marais Erasmus, which was confirmed by replays that showed an inside edge on to his pad.
Broad then scattered Kumar's stumps next ball. Ryan Sidebottom was the last England bowler to claim three wickets in as many balls in a test, against New Zealand in 2008. AGENCIES
