Former Australian skipper Steve Smith and his vice-captain David Warner are all set to make a comeback to the Test arena after serving a 1-year ban for their involvement in the infamous sandpaper saga. English pacer Stuart Broad is looking forward to the return of formerly suspended players as he feels that the English crowd would give them a tough time throughout the high-voltage series.
“The crowd come to see England try and win but have an amazing time with it. Look, Warner and Smith have played in front of many a big crowd and have had to warm to much abuse over their careers. I’m sure the Barmy Army will make them slightly nervous because they are an intimidating unit, but I don’t think it will affect their performances,” he said.
