Stuart Broad wants to distance himself from England’s Test captaincy, know the reason

London. Senior England fast bowler Stuart Broad has distanced himself from the responsibility of captaining the Test. He has supported the country’s star all-rounder Ben Stokes to take up this job. It is worth noting that Ben Stokes has also been named as Test captain by Michael Vaughan and Nasser Hussain. Joe Root resigned from the Test captaincy of England after the recent defeat in the Test series against the West Indies. Earlier in the Ashes series also Australia had badly defeated England.

As far as Broad is concerned, he already has the experience of captaining England in ODIs and T20 Internationals. However, this fast bowler has emphasized that he is focusing on returning to the England team. Recently, Broad did not find a place in the team along with his partner James Anderson for the Test series on the West Indies tour. England suffered a 1-0 defeat in the Test series against the Windies. After this embarrassing defeat, Joe Root, who captained England in Tests for five years, resigned.

i don’t have england test shirt
Stuart Broad wrote in a column for the Daily Mail on Sunday, “Obviously I know that my name has been touted as a possible successor to England.” I think it is because I have been around international cricket for a long time. Broad further wrote that he wants to return to the team by performing well for his county team Nottinghamshire.

According to Broad, it is not something that I have considered. Because first of all I don’t have a shirt in the England Test team. My focus is to change that over the next few weeks by taking wickets for Nottinghamshire. Talking about Test cricket, Broad has played 152 matches. In which he has taken 537 wickets at an average of 27.81. Apart from this, Broad has also played 121 ODIs and 56 T20 Internationals for England.
