England paceman Broad sets sights on 2019 Ashes

  • Root praised the pink ball after England finished the first day of the first day-night Test on 348

He had gone past the legendary Sir Ian Botham's tally of 383 wickets.

Windies must rethink their team selection to maximise their chances of rallying after a crushing defeat in the first Test to England, says Michael Holding, yesterday.

By the time the first session came to an end the tourists had only added 101 runs, but England had taken seven wickets - including a full-length beauty from Broad that made a mess of Kemar Roach's (5) stumps.

West Indies, now ranked eighth in Tests, would campaign in the second tier along with the likes of minnows Bangladesh and Zimbabwe. When he is in his zone, he rips apart opposition mercilessly.

"My first cricketing memory watching live cricket was the '92 World Cup", Broad recalled.

The left-armed Vaas was able to seam and swing the ball, possessing a superb late inswinger to the right-handers, his intelligence and variations ensured he could threaten even on flat surfaces at home and overseas.

"I really don't like being left - it feels like the waste of a run-up". Broad was quoted as saying by cricket.co.au.He also heaped pace on compatriot James Anderson, saying, "To be fair, Jimmy is bowling as well as I've seen him bowl".

500 dead pulled from mudslide in Sierra Leone
Sierra Leonean President Ernest Bai Koroma on Tuesday declared seven days of mourning across the country with immediate effect. Two flights have already transported relief items to Sierra Leone and the remaining two will follow on Monday.


Legendary former paceman Curtly Ambrose has labelled West Indies' annihilation at the hands of England in the first Test "embarrassing" and "pathetic". Although he is down the line in limited-overs cricket these days, there is no stopping Broad the Test cricketer.

The 31-year-old, who has 107 caps, bowled Shane Dowrich to claim his 384th dismissal, and finish with five for 81 in the match.

It will, of course, be a lot more hard in Australia than against West Indies but it is unfair to say that Anderson doesn't perform away from home. "I've hopefully, touch wood, got a few more miles in the tank". He even had a brief chat with Ian Botham, his childhood hero, after the Test. I watch the pair and marvel at the subtle changes in seam position, wobble seam, the way they both work on the ball and communicate with each other. And because Beefy [Botham] was such a legend you see images and footage of him performing throughout his career. "He's turned 35 but I don't think I've ever seen him challenge both sides of the bat as consistently as he has done this summer. He'd obviously get fined by the ICC with them now", Broad expressed as revealed by ESPNCricinfo.

There is mutual respect because they know it helps them take wickets to operate as a pair.

Telegraph Sport understands the European Central Bank is now considering holding a floodlit Test every year in order to build up momentum for the concept in this country.

Muttiah Muralitharan, the leading wicket-taker in Test history, 800 all by himself, somewhat dwarfing Chaminda Vaas' impressive haul of 355 and perhaps because of Murali's brilliance and the traditional dominance of spin bowling on sub-continent pitches, the role of Vaas can be overlooked and the partnership is far less heralded than those touched on above.

England still has questions over a new and unproven top order, but that didn't matter one bit.
