Stuart Broad

Stuart Christopher John Broad, MBE (born 24 June 1986) is an English cricketer who plays Test cricket for the England cricket team and a former ODI and T20 captain.

A right-arm seam bowler and left-handed batsman, Broad began his professional career at Leicestershire; in 2008 he transferred to Nottinghamshire, the county of his birth and the team for which his father played. In August 2006 he was voted the Cricket Writers’ Club Young Cricketer of the Year. In the fourth Test of the 2015 Ashes series Broad took career best figures of 8–15 in the Australian first innings as they were dismissed for just 60. This performance was named as Wisden’s Men’s Test spell of the decade.

Broad was awarded the Man of the Match in the fifth Test of the 2009 Ashes series at the Oval, after figures of 5/37 in the afternoon session of the second day. On 30 July 2011, at the Nottingham Test match against India, he achieved a Test match hat-trick in the process gaining his then best Test figures of 6–46. As a batsman, he holds the second-highest ever Test score made by a number 9—he made 169, his only century in first-class cricket, against Pakistan in August 2010. At the start of the summer in 2012 Broad, returning from injury, produced figures of 7 for 72 in a match haul of 11 wickets against the West Indies. He is England’s second highest wicket taker in Test cricket.

On the morning of the fifth and final day of the third Test of the 2020 series against the West Indies, Broad became the seventh bowler to take 500 wickets in Test cricket, after dismissing Kraigg Brathwaite. Broad was the fourth fast bowler, and second bowler for England after James Anderson, to reach the milestone, who achieved it against the same batsman.

England’s speedster Stuart Broad is widely recognised as one of the finest bowlers of modern-day cricket. Especially, his contribution in the oldest format for England has been quite phenomenal. The Nottingham-born recently etched his name in history books when he became only the seventh bowler to bag 500 wickets in Test cricket. Broad has played

In an ebullient episode, England seamer Stuart Broad received a penalty by his own father and match referee Chris Broad for giving a send-off to Pakistan’s leg-spinner Yasir Shah in the three-match Test series opener at Old Trafford in Manchester.
