• Broad relishes prospect of hostile environment in Australia

Stuart Broad believes the current England team are primed to defend the Ashes this winter after declaring “this is our time” due to the growing experience of the emerging generation coupled with that of himself, Alastair Cook and Jimmy Anderson.

England overwhelm West Indies as Stuart Broad passes Ian Botham’s mark

England, 514-8, beat West Indies, 168 & 137, by an innings and 209 runs
• 19 wickets fall on day three of first Test, England’s inaugural day-night match

The end was swift, cacophonous and melodramatic. On a day when 19 wickets fell, all of them West Indian, England sped to victory by an innings and 209 runs; Stuart Broad became the second-highest wicket-taker among Englishmen, overtaking Sir Ian Botham, as Joe Root’s team earned themselves a couple of days off, during which the pace bowlers will be keen to emphasise that rotation really is not such a good idea. They all want to bowl against these tourists. So from an English perspective there is much to celebrate.

Day-night Test is step into the unknown for England, says Stuart Broad

• West Indies come to Edgbaston with the experience of one such Test
• ‘I just don’t know what to expect,’ says bowler before pink-ball clash

Stuart Broad has described England’s maiden day-night Test match this week as a “step into the unknown” and one that could prove an early leveller against a West Indies side they are otherwise expected to make light work of in preparation for the Ashes.

Steel bands and a fake beach are just two of a number of Caribbean add-ons set to be in place at Edgbaston from 2pm on Thursday as, with a pink Dukes ball in hand and under floodlights in the evening session, the two teams get their three-match Investec series under way and Joe Root’s side look to continue their form from the 3-1 win over South Africa.

Stuart Broad will know his body’s limits, but the physios probably know better | Vic Marks

The England bowler was refused permission to play for Nottinghamshire this weekbut with fast bowlers caution is understandable

The 21st-century revival of England’s Test team has much to do with the advent of central contracts. They were introduced in 2000 to the universal relief of the England players and their coaches; there was some grumpiness around the counties but at least they were spared some significant wages. As has been clear this April, the counties have never been averse to what is effectively a handout.

But there are occasions when the central contract system is a source of exasperation. And this is one of them. Stuart Broad was very keen to play against Durham on Friday; his county, Nottinghamshire, now a second division team, were very keen to have him in the XI. But the director of England cricket, Andrew Strauss, has decreed that Broad must stick to the original ECB plan, which had him missing this game.

Stuart Broad’s request to play against Durham knocked back by ECB

• Andrew Strauss declines player’s bid to delay time off after 48 hours of talks
• Broad forced to take Easter period off after only one game of the season

Stuart Broad will be a frustrated onlooker this weekend after his request to play for Nottinghamshire against Durham – a match for which he was scheduled to be rested – is understood to have been declined by the England and Wales Cricket Board.

As a centrally contracted player, Broad’s availability is dictated by England and his agreed start to the four-day season was to be his county’s opening match at Leicestershire, which ended on Sunday, and then at home against Sussex, starting on 21 April, with the away fixture at Durham in between marked down as time off.
