My partnership with Anderson has improved a lot in last couple of years: Broad
The bowling partnership of James Anderson and Stuart Broad is one of the prime reasons for England’s overwhelming success in tests in last few years.
Opening up on the partnership with Anderson, Broad said that their partnership has improved a lot in the last couple of years with their perfect understanding of each other’s role.
The pair claimed 15 of the 20 Sri Lankan wickets to fall at Headingley where the hosts thumped Sri Lanka by an innings and 88 runs in the first test.
“We’ve actually improved in the last couple of years,” Broad, who turns 30 next month, told British media.
“We’ve always been quite good at communicating, but we’ve taken that to a new level, realising when one of us in on a wicket-taking streak, the other one can apply pressure and not get too greedy, and vice versa.”
The 10 wicket haul in the match helped Anderson to become the sixth highest wicket-taker in the world surpassing India’s Kapil Dev. Praising Anderson, Broad said that Anderson is an outstanding bowler and the duo is experienced enough to assess the conditions quickly.
“Jimmy’s an outstanding swing bowler, as we saw at Headingley when conditions swung. I don’t really swing it – I look to more seam it,” Broad added.
“We feel like we’ve got the experience now to be able to pick up on conditions quickly and not know who’s day it’s going to be.”
The second match of the three-test series begins in Durham on May 27.
