Sunday People – Stuart Broad has warned England management he has no desire to put his feet up until the Ashes after promising there is plenty more to come from him and James Anderson this summer.

Summary

  • Stuart Broad has warned England management he has no desire to put his feet up until the Ashes after promising there is plenty more to come from him and James Anderson this summer.
  • The pair are now numbers one and two on the all time England Test wicket-takers list but good things don’t last forever and there will soon come a time when Broad and Anderson are not terrorising opening batsmen.
  • The records are coming thick and fast with Broad just 16 away from 400 and Anderson eight away from 500 scalps, both of which are possible in the next two games against the Windies.
  • “I will be politely suggesting that I will have sufficient rest in September and October to be available for the next two Tests against West Indies,” said Broad in a pointed response to the idea of resting.
  • And having gone past Sir Ian Botham’s wicket tally at Edgbaston, Broad is keen to emulate his hero in Australia, a place where the legend enjoyed huge success.
