BROAD WANTS RUTH­LESS ENG­LAND TO BE FEARED

7 Days in Dubai - - SPORT -

Stu­art Broad wants Eng­land to strike fear into op­po­si­tion teams as they bid to wrap up the series against Sri Lanka with an­other ruth­less dis­play. Eng­land have al­ready won the series, thanks to com­pre­hen­sive vic­to­ries at Head­in­g­ley and Ch­ester-le-Street, but Broad wants the home side to se­cure their first Test series white­wash since 2011. “That com­fort zone is a very dan­ger­ous place to be in sport,” said the Eng­land fast bowler. “We know that we won the Ashes and lost the last Test match and won in South Africa then lost the last Test match. “We’ve not been very good at stamp­ing our au­thor­ity on series and be­ing ruth­less. We’re very aware that if we want to be the best team in the world then we’ve got to step up and raise our game even if the series is won or lost. “We want to be a ruth­less team, we want to be the team that peo­ple fear play­ing. I think you need a bit of that to be the best team in the world.”
