Notts pair end 74-year wait

Ryan Sidebottom and Stuart Broad created history when the Notts pair took the new ball for England in the second Test with Sri Lanka.

It was the first time two Notts players had opened the bowling for England since the legendary partnership of Harold Larwood and Bill Voce in the 1930s.

Sidebottom had batted defiantly to help England reach a total of 351 all out and then claimed two early wickets, including the world’s number one Test batsman Kumar Sangakkara, while Broad had a more mixed Test debut.

After being dismissed lbw for two, the 21-year-old was twice warned for running on the pitch in his follow-through by umpire Aleem Dar, but switched ends and was unlucky not to pick up a wicket of his own.
