Ashes 2013: ‘Aussie style’ excites me, says Stuart Broad

Ashes 2013: 'Aussie style' excites me, says Stuart Broad

London: Jul 1, 2013

English all-rounder Stuart Broad has claimed that their team would thrive on the aggressive playing style of the Australians, with new coach Darren Lehmann promising to get back to the “Aussie way” of playing the game.

“That Aussie style excites me and I thrive off it,” he was quoted saying by Mirror.

“I love the battle and I think that most of this England team rise to the occasion when it gets a bit fiery.”

Broad will sit out of the warm-up match against Essex to attend to his sore shoulder that he developed during the ICC Champions Trophy 2013 final and expects Australia to respond well with a new coach, adding that they were struggling like a relegation threatened football team.

The England player said that batsmen like Alastair Cook and Jonathan Trott were real fighters who loved facing down quick bowling and were determined to get runs, with Kevin Pietersen getting a hundred every time he was criticized.

“Look at Cooky, he’s a real battler and loves facing down the quick hostile stuff, Trotty is great because if you sledge him it just makes him more determined to get runs.”

“Anytime anyone says anything to Kev, he goes and gets a hundred. If you look through our team it is full of guys who love a battle, Matt Prior couldn’t be more up for a fight if he tried.”

“We’ve got a team who thrive off oppositions that come at us and we stick together. If a team have a go at one of us then they are having a go at all of us and we’ll jump in straight away. I’d expect the Aussies to come out very hard at us and why wouldn’t they,” he added.

“But his Ashes series isn’t going to be about who has the best sledge, it is going to be about who gets the ball in the right areas and who takes their catches.

Broad further said that England was a team, which stuck together and out-skilled the opposition.

“Our aim has to be to outskill the opposition. Of course with it being Australia there will be that added spice, but you’ve got to be able to back it up.”
