West Indies v England: Stuart Broad is desperate for his side to get back to winning ways durng their limited-overs tour
Stuart Broad has urged England to get back to winning ways ahead of their limited-overs tour in West India.
England cricket has undergone an overhaul since their disastrous tour of Australia, with Andy Flower standing down as team director and Kevin Pietersen being axed by the ECB.
It’s time for the guys in that changing room to realise they can be match-winners and can step up now
Broad, who was part of the squad which lost 5-0 Down Under, wants England to step up and make a positive start to the new era ahead of three one-day internationals and three T20s in West Indies.
“When you’ve lost so many games over the last six months, it hurts, so we’ve just got to get back to winning to be honest,” Broad said.
“It’s time for the guys in that changing room to realise they can be match-winners and can step up now.
“We do have to make improvements, that’s obvious. It was heartbreaking to lose 5-0. It’s a winter that was a disaster, but as an England side we have to look forward now.
“We can’t dwell on it now and we must move forward.”
Broad added that England let down former team director Flower during their disastrous tour of Australia.
“There’s no doubt the players let Andy Flower down this winter; the coach can only do so much,” Broad added.
“We let the coaches down this winter and it’s up to the players to respond and perform on the field.”
