Seamer Stuart Broad, on May 14, missed the launch of the England’s upcoming series against New Zealand after the allegations of a boozy night out with former players Andrew Flintoff and Matt Prior.

Broad, who is an ambassador for England Test sponsors Investec, had to reach the place (not known) for the launch at 9.30am but didn’t return at the hotel he was staying at until 7 am. A receptionist at the hotel caught him drunk early in the morning. 

It has also been learnt that Flintoff tweeted about the trio’s boozy night out before quickly deleting the evidence.

However, Broad has denied the accusations and has cited illness for failing to attend the event. It has been said that the ECB are satisfied with Broad’s explanation. 

An ECB spokesman said: “We are aware Stuart Broad was scheduled to appear at a sponsors’ event, but was unable to, and we were told it was due to illness.”

England are scheduled to play 2 Tests, 5 ODIs and a T20 against New Zealand staring May 21. After that, they will clash with Australia for the Ashes, commencing July 8.
