Broad Becomes England's Leading
Twenty20 Wicket Taker
Featured News | 11th February 2013
Nottinghamshire bowler Stuart Broad is keen to build on the imposing start made by England in New Zealand.
Broad, the nation's leading international wicket taker in Twenty20 cricket, presided over a comprehensive victory against New Zealand at Eden Park and will look to secure a series victory at Hamilton on Tuesday.
England's total of 214-7 was their highest in the format and featured 15 sixes.
"We are often very critical of ourselves and set ourselves high standards, but we have to sit down in that changing room today and say that is fantastic," said Broad.
"We talked at half-time about bowling to the bigger boundaries, bowling to a length and taking pace off the ball and we did that fantastically well."
Broad has taken 52 wickets in 44 Twenty20 internationals, eclipsing Nottinghamshire teammate Graeme Swann who has taken 51 from 39.
