In a bizarre occurrence, a resident of Chesire who is Stuart Broad’s neighbor today claimed that Broad is actually a woman. He said no woman likes being ‘broad’ so that is what must have prompted the decision. Stuart Broad has played in over a 100 tests and ODIs for the Men’s national cricket team of England. This is the second such controversy that has rocked the sporting world after similar allegations were levied on India’s Pinki Pramanik.
Stuart Broad was unavailable for comment. He was spotted in a Kennington mall, ahead of the England team’s match against West Indies tomorrow at the Oval. When reporters followed him for questions, he managed to elude them by apparently hiding in a restroom. It has not been determined yet if he hid in the men’s room or the women’s room.
We tried to contact the officials of ECB, but none of them were willing to issue a statement until further light was thrown on the matter. Broad however found support from Micheal Vaughan, who defends whatever the English team does. “It is the England Men’s cricket team. Since it is anyways not made up of only English cricketers, why should there be a mandate to have only men in the team”, Vaughan reasoned.
The intelligence wing of SportsKeeda decided to take matters in their own hands and carried out their own investigation. They dug up information that Broad has many books related to the American Civil War where about 600 women soldiers had fought, disguised as men. They have also pulled up information that Broad had requested fellow cricketer Monty Panesar to accompany him to watch the Bollywood movie “Dil Bole Hadippa”. Monty however had refused as he was more keen on watching “Patiala House”.
Even P Chidambram, The Home Minister of India backed SportsKeeda’s claim saying, “There was no intelligence failure. There never is”.
It is also believed that Staurt Broad was especially charged up for the test series against India in 2011 (he was the Man of the Series) because Indians (Yuvraj) reminded him of the six ‘sixers’.
