The first match of Ashes 2023 between England vs Australia is over. During this, the Australian team won by 2 wickets in a very exciting match and took a 1-0 lead in the series. England’s star pacer Stuart Broad performed brilliantly in the first Test of the series. But he could not win the team. Meanwhile, after the defeat in the first Test, former England captain Nasser Hussain has made a big statement about Stuart Broad.
Former English captain Nasser Hussain wrote in his column for The Daily Mail that “Stuart Broad has given everything for his country in the game and will continue to give until the day he retires.” His understanding of the game makes him special. He knows very well how to get the big batsmen out. Let us tell you that Broad took three wickets in the first innings of this Test and during this he dismissed veterans like David Warner and Marnus Labuschagne and got both of them back in two consecutive balls. After that Broad returned Test cricket greats Steve Smith and Marnus Labuschagne to the pavilion in the fourth innings.
Nasir Hussain further wrote that “Broad often keeps concentrating on wickets. You can see this thing in them. He has played Ashes series 9 times so far and this is his 9th series and he may retire after this. He has performed brilliantly against Australia in the last 8 Ashes series, which will always be remembered. His age is currently 36 years and he is seen in his old rhythm only. Broad has worked very well on his outswinger, which has made him prey to batsmen like Steve and Labushen.
Both the teams were fined after the first test.
Let us tell you that after the first Ashes Test between England vs Australia, both the teams have been fined 40 percent by the ICC for slow over rate. Andy Pycroft of the ICC Elite Panel of Match Referees timed both the teams after two overs less and only then imposed the penalty. In the first Test of the Ashes, it looked like Australia were on the losing side and the hosts had the upper hand. But the Kangaroos have changed the mood with the passage of time and have won a very exciting match.
