What a super all round performance by Broady.. England were dead and buried but he and Bopara managed to win a game they would have lost about an year ago. Great work lads!!!

His father should learn to shut up. Agree with him or not this is not helping his sons career:

Stuart Broad's matchwinning display with bat and ball in the fourth ODI against India at Old Trafford has clearly marked him out as a star of the future, but according to his father - the former England opening batsman and current ICC match referee, Chris - the selectors must avoid getting too carried away too soon.


England's Test squad for the tour of Sri Lanka in December is set to be announced in the coming weeks, but Broad Sr believes that his son, 21, should not be included for a six-week trip that is recognised as one of the most arduous on the international circuit.

"We don't want to get too carried away or look too far ahead," said Chris Broad. "We just want to enjoy the moment. If you start expecting him to get runs and wickets all at the same time, it's a lot to ask of a 21-year-old."

Broad was earmarked for a Test debut against India at Lord's earlier this summer, but was overlooked at the last minute in favour of Chris Tremlett. And his father remains keen that he is not pitched into the highest level too soon, especially with several big-name bowlers working their way back to fitness.

"If you look at the Test bowlers, Harmison, Hoggard and Flintoff are still much ahead of him at the moment," said Broad. "Would you take a young bowler on a tour like that to carry the drinks? I think he's better off playing."

"I believe there's an Academy or A tour to India," he added. "[Stuart] might be better off going on that - and maybe saving him for the Tests in New Zealand early next year where conditions are similar to here."

I think Chris is only sticking up for his son, he doesn't want his very talented son who is showing amazing potential to waste some valuable playing time carrying drinks around the sub continent. Although i believe he should tour - for experience - and he should be given some games over there i also think that his father is right in that we do have some returning bowlers which may mean Stuart is left on the sidelines, and we all saw what happened to Anderson after a year straight of carrying drinks.

Agree or not he should not be commenting either way. I think it ****es Stuart off judging by his cool reactions whenever dad is mentioned. Even at the MOM award when he has won a match for England with bat and ball Athers mentions Chris

Its been mentioned on a couple of threads how Stuart can't seem to do anything without his father coming into the equation somehow.

Hopefully Chris will fade into the background in time and maintain a dignified silence as other previous Test creicket playing fathers have done.

Hmmmm

The quiet, non-confrontational Chris Broad.

Bit of an Oxymoron that one

It's an unusual situation, though. While there have been other fathers and sons who have played for England, I think this is the first time that the father has been so well known to the commentators. Botham, Willis, Gower, Gooch et al have played with Chris Broad. Many of them keep referring to Stuart as "Chris", as do TMS regulars like CMJ. The fact that young Stuart is now playing for England is still a bit of a novelty to them and they just can't help relating everything back to his dad. It's a bit unprofessional, but understandable. I imagine that this will wear off as Stuart becomes more established as an England player.

Funny, I found Chris Broad one of the least likeable and objectionable England cricketers in history, whereas Stuart looks a genuine talent and likeable bloke.

I still remember him refusing to go when he was given out on an away tour (Pakistan I think) and Gooch at the other end had to go down the wicket and tell him whether he agreed with the decision or not he had to go.

It's a case of maybe the son will atone for the sins of the father!

I think Broad is a better batsman than Flintoff, if fit Flintoff should be batting at number 8, or use him as a pinch hitter opening, Broad has a good technique when batting it's better than Flintoffs..

On a serious note, since you have seen him play a decent amount. At Notts he seemed to bowl a decent amount. Has his bowling gone downhill, or did he used to be luckier?

From the Mail -

Stuart Broad has asked his father Chris to keep his opinions about his England future to himself.

After the 21-year-old's man-of-the-match display in the fourth one-day against India at Old Trafford, his father, a former England opener, reacted with caution to calls for his son to be included in the squad for the Test tour to Sri Lanka, saying: "Would you take a young bowler like that to carry the drinks?"

But Stuart yesterday begged to differ, strongly.

"I'd have to disagree with him on that," he said. "Jeez, I want to be on an England tour. My focus is getting on a Test tour and getting in that Test team.

"Every time I get a bat or ball in my hand it's a chance to impress, to take wickets or score runs and push for every cricketer's dream — to play Test cricket. I'm dying to play at the highest standard.

"I've been close on three occasions but it's the hardest thing to drive away from a Test ground on the morning of a game and know you're not picked.

"I want to test myself at that level as soon as possible. I'm not going to say: “Nah — I don't want to go on a Test tour', whatever Dad thinks."

Broad junior was also interviewed by Garry Richardson for his show this morning. He said the same thing, that he would like to be selected for the Sri Lanka tour rather than go on the A tour because he wants to play test cricket a.s.a.p.

Perhaps we should remember that the decision isn't down to Chris or Stuart but the selectors.
