The Aussie bowler was a constant key player in the series
The fourth Test match of the Ashes series starts on September 4 and with Steve Smith coming back to play for Australia, it is the most-anticipated match in the series. England and Australia both have won a Test in this year’s Ashes. One of Australia’s constant players in the series is bowler Stuart Broad. He has picked up 14 wickets in the series so far.
Pat Cummins is the only member of the Australia team that picked up more wickets than Broad in the series. Broad believes that his performance in the Ashes is the best he’s had in four years. ‘At 33 that’s a great place to be because I’m hungry to keep playing. But I also know you can’t look too far ahead in international cricket. I feel I have reinvented myself in the last six or seven weeks on the international stage and that's come from hunger and drive to get better. That's encouraging sign at 33, I'm not tailing off’, said Broad.
The upcoming Test match of this year’s Ashes will be held at Old Trafford in England. Aussie batsman Smith makes a comeback in the series after being rested in the Leeds Test because of injury. Broad comments of Smith’s return. ‘First thing it's great Steve is ok and coming back into Test cricket. But Test cricket is a brutal sport, it's a sport that countries go hell for leather against each other. I'm sure when Steve comes in Jofra (Archer) will be in Rooty's ear wanting the ball, no doubt about that’.
Broad has played in the recent Test matches for Australia but he is not part of the team’s 12-man squad for the Old Trafford Test. The odds are for England (-123.46) to win against Australia (+104) in the upcoming Old Trafford Test. Check out the latest cricket odds at Betwala.
