Five Reasons Why England Recaptured the Ashes


3. Stuart Broads Record breaking Spell :

Stuart Broad record breaking spell in Ashes 2015Who saw that? What was that? Was it for real? OHH HELL YEAH!! THAT WAS REAL!! On the morning of the fourth test at Trent Bridge, Stuart Broad was leading the attack as England’s lead bowler Jimmy Anderson was absent due to an injury but such was Broad’s spell that it didn’t let England feel that. Broad produced a scintillating spell of fast bowling and grabbed up 8-15 in only 9.3 overs, Australia got bundled out for a mere 60 runs and could only last 18.3 overs. In the process Broad reached some personal milestones, he reached the 300th wicket of his test career, he got his best ever test bowling figures, these were the best bowling figures at Trent Bridge, he got the fastest five wicket haul  and also these were the third best bowling figures in an Ashes test. I have to rate it as “THE SPELL OF THE DECADE”.
