Joe Root and Stuart Broad

Ever before the start of Ashes 2017, English cricketers are having a good time in their dressing room. On Wednesday, Stuart Broad revealed that he wants to be the man who leads England to an Ashes win in Australia and wants the Australian fans to treat him as the villain.

Broad revealed how his teammate and skipper Joe Root made a joke on him at the beginning of the tour. As quoted in ESPNCricinfo, he said, “He stuffed me out of sightThere’s an Aussie Rules player called Nathan Broad who had been involved in some scandal or other. Anyway, Rooty put all the papers lined up together just with the ‘Broad in sexting scandal’ headline showing and sent a picture to me and Neil Fairbrother (the former England batsman, who is now Broad, Root and Ben Stokes’ manager), who has obviously had a tough couple of months.”

Continuing his joke, Stuart described how he reacted to the incident. He said, “I woke up with five different papers saying ‘Broad in scandal’ and thought, ‘Oh no, what have I done?’ But then the papers called him ‘Average Joe’ the next day, so it came back to bite him.”

Root might have done a great job in intimidating Broad but the pacer has had the last laugh as media is talking about Root and not him.
