Stuart Broad names his three favourite cricketers growing up

Posted On

Due to the Coronavirus outbreak, cricket series and tournaments have been called off, and cricketers are enjoying quality time with families at homes. England players are no different. They have come home and put themselves into self-isolation amid the threat of coronavirus pandemic.


In their free time, they are spending time on social media platforms and engaging with their fans and followers. Recently, former England batsman Kevin Pietersen ran an Instagram live session with Indian opener Rohit Sharma and South African pacer Dale Steyn.

Now, England speedster Stuart Broad has also arrived in the same category, but he did something else. Unlike KP, Broad revealed his three childhood cricketing heroes on Twitter.


‘The Cricketer’ magazine posted a tweet asking their followers to name three favourite cricketers while growing up.

Broad joined the thread and picked Australia’s Glenn McGrath, South Africa’s Shaun Pollock, and West Indies’ Brian Lara as his childhood heroes.

Currently, Broad is sitting at number 13 in the ICC Test rankings. The 33-year-old has played 138 Tests and taken 485 wickets. He has also smashed a hundred and 12 fifties.
