England pacer Stuart Broad has announced his retirement from cricket. He will call it quits from the game after the ongoing Ashes series.
“Tomorrow (Sunday) or Monday will be my last game of cricket. It has been a wonderful ride and a huge privilege to wear the Nottinghamshire and England badge as much as I have,” Broad told Sky Sports after Stumps on day three.
“It’s been a wonderful ride, a huge privilege to wear the Nottinghamshire and the England badge as much as I have and I’m loving cricket as much as I ever have.”
“It’s been such a wonderful series to be a part of and I’ve always wanted to finish it on top,” Broad said. “This series feels like one of the most enjoyable and entertaining I’ve been a part of.
“I’ve got a love affair with Ashes cricket and I think I wanted my last bat and bowl to be in the Ashes.”
Broad announced the decision at the end of the third day of the fifth Ashes Test at the Oval on Saturday. He had reached the milestone of taking 600 Test wickets during the fourth Test at Old Trafford in Manchester earlier this month.
The 37-year-old has played 167 Test matches, picking 602 wickets. He has also featured in 121 ODIs and 56 T20Is.
