After 167 Tests and 602 wickets, Broad, the fast bowler from England, announced his retirement from cricket.
On the weekend, right after the thrilling fifth and ultimate Test match against Australia, the 37-year-old batsman took a poignant moment to say his last goodbyes to the iconic Oval ground.
“An incredible ride it has been, both in Nottinghamshire and with England. Wearing the Baggy Green is a tremendous honor,” Broad said to Sky Sports.
Rahul Dravid, the head coach of India, honoured Broad and reflected on his time playing cricket. He mentioned that Anderson’s partnership with Broad will always be remembered and cherished, and it will be something that will be spoken about even after the matches are over during media interactions.
“I feel that Anderson and Broad, who have played together for England, have displayed some fantastic performances. He is a unique sort of player since he has played so many Test matches and taken 600 wickets,” stated Dravid.
“My best wishes to him. Congratulations on an outstanding career. I hope he fulfills everything he desires in the best possible way,” Dravid added.
