Stuart Broad Extends Nottinghamshire Contract by Two Years

English cricketer Stuart Broad has committed to Nottinghamshire CCC for another two years after signing a new contract.

Stuart Broad posted his excitement on Twitter along with a photo of him wearing the county’s crest. The caption read, ‘Delighted to have signed a 2 year extension with Nottinghamshire CCC. Love the club & feel proud to call a ground as amazing as Trent Bridge home. Do you like the new Crest? #NCCC'.

Nottinghamshire has confirmed that the 33-year-old bowler has signed a two-year contract that runs until the end of 2021. This means that he is set to play his 13th and 14th seasons for the county.

NCCC head coach Peter Moores even addressed praises about the ‘brilliant leader’.

‘To reinvent himself, in some ways, despite all his success - is a great example to everyone. His record for Notts when he's with us is outstanding and - knowing Stuart - he'll be as motivated as anyone for us to bounce back from last season by playing successful four-day cricket for the next couple of years', Moores commented.

Back in 2008, Broad had signed for the Notts from Leicestershire. From there, he became a significant asset in winning the trophy for the county in 2010, 2013 and 2017. 

Since then, the pacer has featured in 40 first-class matches for the county where he returned 147 wickets at an average of 24. This includes 17 of the wickets obtained from his seven appearances in 2019.

It was a great 2019 for Broad in Test cricket where he holds 30 wickets at 23 across England's home Tests against Ireland and Australia. He then scored further in South Africa with 14 wickets at 19.42 that is more than any of his countrymen.
