Stuart Broad says England to play aggressive cricket against - ICC World Cup 2011
Stuart Broad, the English fast bowler, is not intimidated by the powerful Indian batting line-up and thinks his team can overwhelm the host team by playing aggressively. Broad believes his side has got the resources to upstage the Indians when they play
them in their second ICC World Cup 2011 match on the 27th of February in
“We'll sit down and discuss how to deal with each of their batsmen, because we know they are one of the most powerful line-ups in the world. We know it is a good time to bat against the new of ball in the sub-continent so we've got to try and make some early
inroads. Otherwise it will become difficult to stop them. We have the tools to curb their aggressive batsmen,” Broad said.
Broad is of the view that the flat pitches in the Subcontinent are an ideal setting for the English batsmen to feel excited at the prospect of facing Indian bowlers. “We will play the way have played our cricket for the last 18 months - try to be fearless,
and if you think a shot's on you take it on. Our batsmen are excited about the opportunity of facing India's bowlers, they are a world-class team but there's no reason we can't express ourselves like we have done against Pak and SA in the summer,” he was reported
as saying.
England has made it to the final of the ICC World Cup on three occasions previously but never won it. The last time they reached the final was in 1992 when they lost to The English pacer believes this is something the team will like to change and
it’s a possibility considering they have been rewriting English cricket for the past 24 months.
The English side has indeed performed exceeding well in the last two years. They won the ICC T20 World Cup and proved they were good enough to win a global limited overs event. The team has won the last two Ashes series and did well to draw the test series
against the South Africans. Broad attributed much of the team’s success to the coach, Andy Flower.
