England captain Eoin Morgan believes that England bowler Stuart Broad still has a lot of fire left in him to stage an improbable comeback into the ODI side. Broad has predominantly been playing red-ball cricket for the most part given the fact that the packed international schedule certainly takes a lot out of cricketers these days.

However, Morgan is convinced that the England pacer can indeed stage a comeback given the fact that England is lacking experience in the bowling department at the moment. This was evident in the first match of the series against India wherein the Indians were able to chase down the hefty score of 350 with a considerable amount of deliveries to spare as well.

This would also be the perfect time for someone like Broad to make a comeback in the grand scheme of thins given the fact that the 2017 edition of the ICC Champions Trophy is right around the corner. This edition will also be played at home, something that would certainly give them an advantage as well.

“Stuart is always in our thoughts. I thought that he charged in at the Big Bash. I watched all his games, and he is working on his variations. It is very difficult for him to go from playing Test cricket to the Big Bash League, but he has made a fist of it, so credit to him. He wants to play more white-ball cricket and he certainly could be an option for the future.”
