England bowler Stuart Broad has claimed that he is hopeful that the Barmy Army can be in the stadiums for the 2021/22 Ashes series Down Under and talked up his side’s chances of success.
After his performances over the past two summers, the prospect of Broady in the upcoming Ashes series is something that the Aussie batsman aren’t likely to be looking forward to.
For England fans, on the other hand, it’s a cause for significant excitement and it appears the feeling is mutual as Broady has spoken out today about his hopes of playing in front of the Barmy Army in the series Down Under in 2021/22.
In an interview with ESPNCricinfo, the fast bowler that took his wicket tally in Tests past 500 this summer claimed he was hopeful that England’s travelling support would be there when they take on the Aussies in just over a years time.
He said: “I think Australia have done pretty well with it, haven’t they, so another year down the line we’d be hopeful that we can we can take our trusty support and the Barmy Army with us to Australia, because genuinely I do feel like it’s one of our best chances of doing well there with the quality of players we’re growing.
“It would be awesome to be able to take our home fans to an Ashes series because they’re such special occasions.”
You’ve got to love Broady’s positivity and it’s hard to argue with him at the moment, with wins against the West Indies and Pakistan this summer meaning England have won their last three consecutive Test series.
Taking on the Aussies on their own turf is a different proposition but hopefully, we can be there to roar Broady and co on when they do.
