Stuart Broad

Stuart Broad was born in 1986, the son of former England opening batsman Chris Broad, beginning his professional cricket career for Leicestershire and appearing in all three international formats before making his Nottinghamshire debut in the 2008 season. A right-arm seam bowler and left-handed batter, Broad appeared 344 times for England between 2007-23, finishing with a combined 847 wickets – placing him seventh on international cricket’s all-time list. Only four players made more than his 167 Test appearances. He featured in four Ashes series victories and was a Twenty20 World Cup winner in 2010. Broad captained England in T20s on 27 occasions, was part of the Test team that rose to the number one Test ranking in 2011 and made it to the top of the Test bowling charts himself in 2016 following a devastating display of six for 17 versus South Africa in Johannesburg. His standout career performance, though, came in 2015 when he claimed astonishing figures of eight for 15 as Australia were dismissed for just 60 at Trent Bridge while he also became the first Englishman to take two Test hat-tricks – against India in 2011 and Sri Lanka in 2014.
