Broad Stay Extended By Notts

Fast bowler Stuart Broad has signed an extended contract with Nottinghamshire that will keep him at Trent Bridge for a further two years.

The England International will start his 13th season at Trent Bridge this year and has enjoyed huge success with club (and country) since signing for Notts from Leicestershire in 2008.

With 728 wickets in all formats for England he’s the second leading wicket taker in Test Cricket for his country only behind good pal and fellow strike bowler Jimmy Anderson.

Broad, who’s father Chris also famously played for Notts & England has 779 first class wickets taking 147 red ball wickets for Nottinghamshire at an average of 24.00.

On securing his future at the home of cricket for a further couple of years the 33 year old stated “Every time I step out at Trent Bridge, it feels just as special as the first time I walked onto the turf at three or four years old,”

“I love Nottingham being my home, I love playing for the club, and I certainly can’t envisage myself playing for any other county.”

Elsewhere another of Nottinghamshire’s England Internationals Alex Hales has been named in an All-Star World XI to face an Asia XI in a series commemorating the centenary of the birth of the founding father of Bangladesh.

Hales will team up with former Notts batsman Brendan Taylor and a whole host of stars including England’s Jonny Bairstow, Chris Gayle of the West Indies, Faf Du Plesssis of South Africa and more as they take on an Asia side including the likes of Virat Kohli, Tamin Iqbal and Lasith Malinga in a T20 series to be played in Dhaka on 21st & 22nd March.
