Broad's Resistance Helps To
Secure Draw In New Zealand
Featured News | 26th March 2013
Nottinghamshire's Stuart Broad helped England to cling on for a draw in New Zealand with a remarkable display of defensive batting.
Broad batted for 103 minutes without scoring, a new record in international cricket, as England secured a draw that had seemed unlikely at the start of the final day.
England finished on 315-9 with Matt Prior unbeaten on 110 alongside Monty Panesar at the close.
"I'm not one to celebrate draws but to escape with that is a phenomenal effort," said Prior.
"I think Monty had been sleeping so I had to wake him up first, but he was magnificent.
"My role was to help him with game plans, tell him this is what they're going to do, this is how they're going to try to get you out.
"All our guys have been working so hard in the nets for that exact moment."
England can now look forward to a home series against New Zealand with Trent Bridge set to host the third NatWest Series One Day International on Wednesday 5 June.
