Senior English pacer Stuart Broad had a fantastic Ashes this year as he ended up with the second most wickets in the series after Australia’s Pat Cummins while he especially took a liking to David Warner who got out to him 7 times in 10 innings.
The tall right-handed pacer used the new ball to great effect to give England breakthroughs during all games as he seemed a completely different bowler this time around.
New Zealand cricket legend Richard Hadlee, who has been Broad’s mentor throughout his career, has applauded the English fast bowler for the continuous improvement in his performances as he said that Broad is on the verge of greatness.
“I can't take any credit because advice is advice, and you've still got to get out there and adapt and perform. He's absolutely done that. To see him mature and develop and perform the way that he has, he's on the verge of greatness, it’s an extraordinary performance,” said Hadlee.
