- Broad retires from all cricket with final wicket of 2023 series
- Moeen Ali confirms end of Test career for second time
Stuart Broad reflected the emotions in the stands when summing up his own on his last day of cricket: “My lasting memories will be of pure joy and happiness, and that’s exactly how I feel right now.”
Once again Broad provoked an immediate breakthrough by turning the bails at one end – his final tally of 604 Test wickets might have been even more impressive had he only discovered this trick a few years earlier – with Todd Murphy this time the victim. “Amazing that worked twice in the game, just completely freakish,” Broad said.
