The recently concluded Ashes 2023 series played by the England Cricket Team ended in a thrilling 2-2 draw. In the fifth and final Test match, the host team secured a nail-biting victory by 49 runs. However, the series also marked the end of the illustrious international career of England’s premier fast bowler, Stuart Broad.
Shortly after his retirement, Stuart Broad made a fresh start as a commentator, stepping into the world of cricket analysis and commentary. Dinesh Karthik, the Indian wicketkeeper-batsman and commentator, warmly welcomed Broad to this new role.
Dinesh Karthik had been part of the English commentary panel during the Ashes series. Now, as the Hundred Tournament’s second leg takes place in England, Karthik has joined as an English commentator once again. On this occasion, he shared a special post on his official Twitter handle to welcome Broad. In the post, alongside a picture of them holding microphones, Karthik wrote, “Broadie, welcome to this side. I am confident you’ll do great.”
The shared post shows Broad and Karthik with microphones in hand, both smiling. Even after Stuart Broad’s retirement from cricket, Karthik had previously shared a post appreciating him, saying, “Thank you for this. It’s time for this now.”
Stuart Broad surprised everyone by announcing his retirement from Test cricket on the third day of the Oval Test. Throughout his Test career, he played 167 matches and claimed 604 wickets. Notably, Broad holds the record for the most wickets taken by an England bowler in Ashes history. In the 40 Ashes matches he played between 2009 and 2023, he took a remarkable 153 wickets, securing the top position in this category.
With this new phase as a commentator, cricket enthusiasts can now look forward to experiencing Broad’s insights and analysis on the game he passionately played for years.
