During the final session of play on Day 4 of the first Ashes 2023 Test in Edgbaston, England batter Harry Brook expressed his excitement at witnessing veteran pacer Stuart Broad’s exceptional performance up close.
Broad displayed remarkable skill by making the ball move in both directions, leading to the dismissals of Marnus Labuschagne and Steve Smith, widely regarded as the two most formidable Australian batters. Despite their high rankings as the No. 1 and No. 2 Test batters, Labuschagne and Smith struggled to handle Broad’s unwavering precision and were eventually caught behind while attempting loose drives.
England Cricket shared a video on their Twitter account featuring Harry Brook’s thoughts on Stuart Broad’s spell. Brook described the experience as exhilarating, feeling that Broad had the potential to take a wicket with every delivery, especially when the ball started swinging towards the end. He praised Broad’s performance as truly awe-inspiring and expressed hope that he would continue his remarkable form in the upcoming day.
