England World T20 opener win `non-negotiable`, says skipper Broad
London: England Twenty20 captain Stuart Broad has said that a victory in their World T20 tournament-opening match against New Zealand is `non-negotiable`
The skipper, who is confident of overcoming a recent knee problem, said that England tend not to start series `overly well`, but this opening match is a ` non-negotiable`.
According to the BBC, Broad said that he is hopeful adding that his knee has come up well from their team`s warm-up match with India.
Broad, who missed two games of this month`s T20 series in the West Indies, said that his knee getting better has given him a lot of confidence and although, it has been a long winter for him personally, but those 10 days have `freshened him up`.
Despite England losing the warm-up matches against West Indies and India, Broad is encouraged from the 20-run defeat by India and said that although his squad lost, he feels that it had been one of the best `death-bowling` performances for a long time by his team, the report added.
