England managed to win a historic Test series in Pakistan at the end of 2022. England fans were in an ecstatic mood after Ben Stokes and his men pulled off such a series victory. However, Stuart Broad did not play the series as he ruled out himself from the whole away Test series.

Sources claimed that England fast bowler and his partner were expecting a child in mid-November. Broad put his family first and that’s why he was unavailable for selection for the trip. Meanwhile, the under-19 Women’s 20-20 World Cup is going on in South Africa. There, Pakistan women took on Rwanda women on 15 January 2023.

Stuart Broad has taken 809 international wickets so far for England

In that match, Pakistan’s Zaib-un-Nisa ran out Shakila Niyomuhoza at the non-striker hand. In recent times, this mode of dismissal has made headlines. Now, regarding that, the England pacer, Stuart Broad shared a tweet where he said that he will never do such dismissals in context to the sportsmanship in Cricket. Stuart Broad wrote: “Never. I run too far to bowl the ball to even consider it. I like getting people out properly.” Speaking about Broad, he last played for England in a Test against the Proteas at the Oval on 8-12 September 2022. As of now, he has played 336 international matches where Broad has taken 809 wickets so far. 

But, he made a controversy during the Ashes series in 2013. The incident took place during the first Test match. England and Australia locked horns in Trent bridge. In the second innings, Stuart Broad was batting on 37 runs. Then, Ashton Agar was bowling and he produced an edge. Brad Haddin also grabbed that ball. But, the umpire did not give out. Even, replays showed that Broad kicked that. Still, he refused to walk out of the field. For such an action, the English fast bowler was criticized. But, English fans were supporting their player. However, Broad said: “It was an odd one. There was no particular noise because of the noise of Haddin’s gloves. It’s a bit silly when people say it was nicked to slip because actually it was edged to the keeper’s gloves and flew off the gloves to slip.”
