The legendary England pacer Stuart Broad has decided to call it time on his cricket career post the conclusion of the Ashes 2023 series. Notably, it was on Friday evening that the pacer reached out to his two teammates and stalwarts of the game James Anderson and Joe Root, respectively, and informed them of his decision. Moreover, it was also claimed that Broad was teary-eyed while communicating his retirement decision.
Notably, last week Broad picked his landmark 600th Test wicket at Old Trafford in Manchester. Following that he became the fifth most wicket-taking bowler in the world. Moreover, he is only the second English bowler after his counterpart James Anderson to have taken 600 wickets.
Meanwhile, reflecting on his decision to bid adieu to his career, Broad said that he has been thinking about it for quite some time. Besides, he also added that he loves playing against the arch-rivals Australia. The lanky pacer also believes that this was the best time to arrive at the conclusion of his long career as he considers 'The Ashes' as the most cherished event of cricket.
