English media hails Broad as England`s new `destroyer` after `hurricane` Durham spell
London: The English media has hailed bowler Stuart Broad as England`s destroyer after he bowled a hurricane 43-ball spell against Australia in Durham, in which six wickets fell and the fourth Ashes Test was turned upside down.
According to metro.co.uk, Broad who was once dubbed England`s `enforcer,` now had a more apt nickname of `destroyer`.
The report said that the player`s best spells always seem to come at a time when the chips are down and the team needs him most, giving the example of the first Test against New Zealand at Lord`s this May when the Kiwis were blown away for 68 in 22.3 overs chasing 239, where Broad had taken seven for 44.
Next week, Broad returns to The Oval, the scene of his greatest triumph and surely the last place Australia`s batsmen will want to head next, especially captain Michael Clarke, who has now been dismissed five times by Broad in this series, the report added.
