England fast-bowler Stuart Broad has shrugged off the claims by former team-mate Kevin Pietersen that there was a bullying culture in the dressing room during Pietersen’s time with England. 

During an interview with BBC Sport, Broad said:

The ‘bullying’ word hasn’t crossed my mind in eight or nine years of playing international cricket.”

He added: 

You would expect guys to be excited and passionate about playing for their country. Look at Peter Schmeichel (former Manchester United goalkeeper)-when he conceded a goal, he certainly gave Steve Bruce and Gary Pallister. I don’t know if that would be classified as bullying, or just the passion of being disappointed.” 

Meanwhile, Stuart Broad expressed happiness for Jonathan Trott, who has been selected in England Lions squad to tour South Africa after withdrawing from the England’s Ashes squad last year due to stress-related illness

I think if I could choose anyone to bat for my life, it would be Jonathan Trott. It was really sad to see what happened to him in Australia, but credit goes to him, his family and the people around him to get him back up to playing cricket and scoring runs,” Broad said


    While spending good 22 years of my life, I found my passion in India’s unofficial national game, Cricket.
