Broad thriving on jeers from crowd

Stuart Broad says the jeers from the crowd were "good fun" as the England paceman took five wickets on the opening day of the Ashes, with Australia finishing on 273-8.

Broad described the England team as feeling like "silent assassins" because all the talk before the series was about the Australians, meaning the tourists have been able to focus and prepare well under the radar.

He went on to say the Ashes always "brings out the best" in him and that the team were "tired but delighted" after the first day's play.
