- ‘Joe and I are great friends. It was a privilege playing under him’
- Broad urges England to ride wave of positivity from first Test win
Stuart Broad has said it would have been “pathetic” to fall out with Joe Root over his omission from the Caribbean tour and wants England to ride the wave of their long overdue win at Lord’s when the series moves to his beloved Trent Bridge.
Root’s unbeaten 115 in the five-wicket victory against New Zealand made for a heartening return to the ranks for the former captain, the strains of his final months in the role seemingly melting away to get his successor, Ben Stokes, off to a winning start while the team’s new head coach, Brendon McCullum, looked on approvingly.
