World Twenty20 experience makes Stokes a Better Cricketer: Broad
England all-rounder Ben Stokes will learn from his terrible World Twenty20 experience and come back a stronger player, team mate Stuart Broad has said. In 2007, Broad was humiliated when Yuvraj Singh, of India, hit six sixes off his final over in a World Twenty20 game. We might all have forgotten about it given Broad’s subsequent success, but for the fact that Ben Stokes suffered a similar fate in the last over of the World Twenty20 final last month.
“I wouldn’t be the bowler I am now without that experience,” Broad told British media.You’re dead right, people would have been sat there thinking: ‘Why did you go that way?” Broad said.
“But you’ve got to go with what you feel is your strength, so as a player you’ll always have things you are confident in. I prefer a player to get it wrong going for something they believe is their strength than going to something that isn’t.
Don’t be surprised if Stokesy now performs at a really high level because he’ll realise what went wrong and channel it the right way — he has an amazing talent,” he added.
England will kick off their three-match home test series against Sri Lanka at Headingley on Thursday, which will be followed by an ODI series.
