Bio

After limited opportunities at previous ICC Cricket World Cups and concerns with injury, Stuart Broad will hope to be fit and firing when he arrives in Australia and New Zealand.

The quick, now 28 years old, suffered knee problems throughout 2014 which resulted in knee surgery in September and he was ruled out of November’s tour of Sri Lanka. 

In 2007, he played one World Cup match, going wicket-less against West Indies, while in the 2011 tournament he played three games before injury forced him on to the sidelines.

Broad broke into England’s team at the age of 20, making his one-day international debut against Pakistan in August 2006.

The son of former England opening batsman Chris Broad, Stuart was given a call-up to the Test team on the 2007 tour of Sri Lanka.

He played a key role in the 2009 Ashes including 5-37 at The Oval in the decider and was subsequently named one of Wisden’s five cricketers of the year.

His impressive performances continued in 2010, including helping England secure the World Twenty20 in the Caribbean, before a torn abdominal muscle in late 2010 ended Broad’s involvement in an Ashes tour and threatened his World Cup preparations.

He regained fitness in time for the tournament but only managed three games before a side strain forced him out.

Broad has remained an important part of England’s line-up despite various injury problems and the team will hope he stays fit through the Australian ODI series and World Cup.
