Sorry Stu on a dou­ble downer

CRICKET

Midweek Sport - - THURSDAY FEBRUARY 14 -

ENG­LAND cap­tain Stu­art Broad blamed him­self TWICE af­ter his team’s 55-run de­feat against New Zealand.

Bren­don McCul­lum was the match-win­ner as the hosts lev­elled the Twenty20 se­ries with one to play, hit­ting 74 from just 38 balls in New Zealand’s 192 for six.

Jos But­tler smashed 54 from only 28 balls but Eng­land tum­bled to 137 all out in re­ply.

Broad, who had bowl­ing fig­ures of none for 53, ad­mit­ted his per­for­mance with the ball was not up to scratch and that he re­gret­ted his de­ci­sion to put New Zealand in.

“I made the wrong de­ci­sion at the toss and we need to get back on track,” said Broad.
