Broad decided to retire after not getting a chance in the first Test
England pacer Stuart Broad was outraged in front of the media for not getting a chance in the XI of the first Test of the series against the West Indies. Broad even decided to retire from cricket at that time.
In an interview with The Mail on Sunday (August 2), Broad said: “I decided to retire after not getting a chance in the first Test. Because I was so broken then. I don’t remember ever being so shocked. Before, when I dropped out, I understood myself, I tried to maintain self-confidence. But this time he could not trust himself.
He added: ‘This time when Ben Stokes told me I wasn’t playing, my body started shaking. I could not speak. My body turned to ice. ‘
Although he did not get a chance in the first Test, Broad got a chance in the second Test. He took 6 wickets in that match. He got a place in the third Test team. The third Test Broad seems to be sharper. The right-arm pacer took 10 wickets in the last Test. Broad touched the milestone of 500 wickets in his Test career with 10 wickets.
