Stuart Broad reveals that while he is really fond of watching old Cricket games, he never watches those games in which he himself participated in because it feels absolutely bizarre to him to watch himself in action.
On asked what is his favourite item on the television apart from Cricket, is it news or is it some soap, Broad says he doesn’t switch to the news channels at all and whatever news he comes to know about, he does it via social networking platforms and not via television.
The items which are generally on his television are all sports items and he rarely switches to anything else. Golf and Soccer are the two sports other than Cricket which he takes keen interest in and follow a lot. More
The fear of burnout ahead of the forthcoming Ashes is already forcing teams to take certain steps.
The Ashes series is set to take place towards the year end but the ECB has denied the request of Nottinghamshire for Stuart Broad. The County cricket side wanted the player to feature in the County Championship games.
Some argue that it was a sensible decision ahead of the longest ever season in English cricket but others say the governing body was abusing its power. England wants to keep the chances of retaining the Ashes so they do not want fatigue to affect either of Broad or Jimmy Anderson.
Ben Stoke is another concern with his participation in international cricket. With as much as 19 games that would run until September, the England talisman is focused on having an incredible year despite the workload. More

The cricketers have been doing their very best to put behind their struggles in their two previous tests in India and the clique which included the likes of Joe Root, James Anderson, Stuart Broad, and Ben Duckett were spotted relaxing in the sunny metropolis
The clique were joined by Louise Webber and Bealey Mitchell, girlfriends of Buttler and Broad respectively.
In particular, Buttler seemed to be making the most of the trip, as he was spotted posing in front of the Burj Al Arab with Webber, and a beer in one hand. More
