In-form Broad not interested in taking `rest`
Edgbaston: Amidst talks that he may be rested for the third Test against the West Indies, young England paceman Stuart Broad has said categorically that he does not want to be rested since he is in the "best nick" of his life.
Both England captain Andrew Strauss and the bowling coach David Saker hinted that pace duo of Broad and James Anderson may be rested for the Edgbaston Test, starting June 7, under the rotation policy for the fast bowlers.
England have already clinched the three-Test series by winning the first two games.
"I don`t personally feel in need of a break. I actually believe I`m in the best nick of my life, so when you feel that way you want to carry on," Broad wrote in his column in `Daily Mail`.
Broad said he was in good rhythm and totally fresh after playing just two Test matches and two first-class games this season.
"It`s worth remembering that I missed the Colombo Test against Sri Lanka through injury, so I haven`t had a massive workload in the last few months," he added.
However, he said he would respect the decision of the team management. England are planning to rest key players ahead of their packed summer schedule, that include tours by Australia and South Africa.
"...If the powers that be do want any of us to sit it out I`m sure we will have to be told rather than volunteer. But it`s their prerogative."
