New Delhi. James Anderson and Stuart Broad, two names in English cricket that need no introduction. Both these bowlers are the highest wicket-takers for their team. Both these bowlers have been playing international cricket for their team for a very long time. The long career of both is often discussed. Broad and Andersen have taken the fitness of fast bowlers to a different level and this is the reason why both have not only been able to play professional cricket for such a long time but have also been able to perform wonderfully.
Last Friday, Caribbean Premier League (CPL) franchise Barbados Royals made a funny post about the ‘long’ career of these two cricketers from their official Twitter handle. The post posted pictures of James Anderson and Stuart Broad, who were said to be from the year 2053. In 2053, Anderson will be 70 years old and Broad will be 66 years old.
Barbados Royals wrote in the caption of their post, ‘Year 2053 and these two will still be troubling the batsmen! Legends.’ In the pictures posted with the caption, Broad and Anderson look very old.
