Stuart Broad's limited overs career not over - Trevor Bayliss
Stuart Broad's limited overs career not over - Trevor Bayliss

Stuart Broad has been an absolute gem for England in test matches. The tall pacer along with swing sensation James Anderson has entered record books for his fine bowling over the course of the last few years.

However, Broad is still not too satisfied with the way his career is going about these days. The pacer was recently ignored for the limited overs assignment against the visiting Sri Lankan side.

Broad, who made a comeback in the ODI setup against South Africa earlier this year found no place in the team for the ODI series against Sri Lanka. The pacer, however, is quite determined to make it to the 2019 World Cup which we will be played in England itself.

England coach Trevor Bayliss spoke on the matter and said that Broad could well feature in the ICC Champions Trophy squad next year.

“The limited-overs team has been picked on merit but that does not mean that it’s the end of his career,” said Bayliss about Broad.

“There’s bowlers in the team that still haven’t cemented their spot. He’s there or thereabouts. He’s keen to play at home in the 2019 World Cup and we are aware of that. There is no reason why he couldn’t be playing in the Champions Trophy next year.”

Bayliss also opened up about the wicketkeeping role in England’s test squad and hinted that axed wicketkeeper Jos Buttler could soon earn a recall. “Jos will be the wicketkeeper for the limited-overs games,” Bayliss said.

“He has been in the last few white-ball series. “Runs could put him back in the frame for the Test side, but the selectors would like to see him score runs in the four-day game to show us he’s back in form. We know the devastating player he can be. It’s a bit unfortunate we don’t have any games for another couple of weeks, but he will get his opportunity I’m sure.”

“I am a little bit old school,” Bayliss added. “I think the best wicketkeeper should be the wicketkeeper.”Our wicketkeepers – and there are three of them if you include Sam Billings – are young and inexperienced, I suppose. They are probably batters who are wicketkeepers.

“I’ve said to all three of them that I believe the wicketkeeper in the team should be the best we have. Basically just to make sure they continue to work hard. Jonny, Jos and Sam certainly have stepped it up with the practice.”
