Broad & Anderson are a good partnership on the field as well as off it

England lost the five-match ODI series to Australia 3-2, but they are still basking in the glory of the Ashes victory over their arch rivals. The main architects of the hosts victory was the fast bowling duo of Stuart Broad and James Anderson and the pair shared an interesting snippet about an off-field incident during the Ashes series.  

Broad single handedly destroyed Australia in the fourth Test with his spell of 8/19 in the first innings while Anderson was the architect of England’s victory in the third Test. The duo have been hunting in pairs for the national side for a long time now, but their friendship off the field go back even longer.

England’s hunt to regain the Ashes urn got off to a perfect start at Cardiff in the first Test before things got out of hand at Lord’s. Australia hit back strongly in the second Test eventually winning the match by a whopping margin of 405 runs. 

Broad shared insight into what he described as his most memorable moment of the Ashes series and it didn’t come on the field. Australia amassed 330/1 at the end of the opening day of the Lord’s Test and with Anderson and Broad heading to the ground ahead of the second day’s play in the former’s car, they came across Anderson’s ad on the back of a bus, which were titled “I feel fantastic”, leaving Broad in laughter and Anderson feeling distraught. 

Broad revealed about the incident in a television show held yesterday on the Ashes triumph and followed it up with a video evidence of the said incident.
