Broad and Anderson should not play together: Vaughan
Stuart Broad and James Anderson are arguably one of the deadliest bowling duos in the world. They both have been perhaps the greatest bowling partnerships in contemporary cricket with Broad picking 467 Test wickets and James Anderson claiming 575 Test wickets, which is the most by any England bowler in history.
Meanwhile, former England captain Michael Vaughan has advised England and Wales Cricket Board, not to play the likes of Stuart Broad and James Anderson together in the game for workload management. If the board might consider Vaughan’s advice, then the fans might not see them bowling together in the future.
“I don’t think it’s right that both of them play now. It might be that Broad plays one series and Anderson plays one series. They are not going to like it, but they are at that stage of their careers where England are going to have to manage the combination very smartly,” the former England skipper was quoted as saying by Times Now.
To add the fact that Broad is 33 years old and Anderson is 37 years old, though he has proved that age is just a number. Anderson has shown some positive intent of playing Tests till he is 40.
Stuart Broad ended up taking 23 wickets at a pretty decent average of 26.65 and was England’s pick of the bowlers in the five-match Ashes series. Joining Archer, he formed a ferocious opening bowling pair and even vice-captain Ben Stokes said that Archer will be an important factor for England winning the Ashes in Australia.
England will now jet off to New Zealand to play five T20Is and two Test matches in late October.
