Alistair Cook hails the contribution of Stuart Broad after the fast bowler took career-best figures of 44-7 in the first Test against New Zealand.

England captain Alistair Cook has hailed the impact of fast bowler Stuart Broad after he took career best figures of 44-7 to hand England a 1-0 lead in the two match Test Series against New Zealand.

Broad was given the man of the match award for his second innings bowling performance, and Alistair Cook has said that it was fully deserved.

"He's got all the attributes of being a world class bowler," said Cook.

"When he gets it totally right like he did today he's an absolute nightmare (to face.

"He bowls in the mid-to-high 90s and swings it away. It's hard to face."

England face New Zealand in the second Test at Headingley on Friday.
