London: Dec 16, 2013
According to the Guardian, Broad insisted they had come to the ground morning still confident in their ability to reduce the arrears to 2-1, firstly by extending their overnight total of 180 for four somewhere close to Australia’s 385.
Instead they were all out for 251, their highest first-innings total of the series but a tame surrender nonetheless and also suffered the collateral damage to Broad, who has been comfortably their best bowler in the series but was thrown into doubt for the remaining two Tests when he was struck on the top of his right foot, the report said.
Broad said that losing three wickets before the new ball was very disappointing and credited Australia’s attacking approach as the key factor behind the stunning turnaround since they were beaten 3-0 in England, adding that they had been fantastic.
