LONDON, July 29: Veteran fast-bowler Stuart Broad helped England to a 2-1 series win over the West Indies, taking 16 wickets in the two Tests he played in the three-match rubber. In the process, he also became the fourth fast bowler to cross 500 Test wickets and his long-time new ball partner James Anderson backed him to even surpass the latter�s record for most wickets in the longest format for England.
�I feel fit, my fitness testing post lockdown was the best it�s ever been,� Broad was quoted as saying by BBC Sport. �I feel excited. I�m really enjoying playing around this group.
�You know what, why not try and follow in Jimmy�s (Anderson) footsteps? He�s been wonderful to play with. I don�t feel like I�m the old outcast and I feel like Jimmy feels exactly the same.� � IANS
