Stuart Broad to retire after Ashes – wants to end ‘at the top’

England bowler Stuart Broad says he will retire after the conclusion of the fifth Ashes Test at The Oval.

The 37-year-old has taken 602 wickets in 167 Tests, making him the second most successful paceman in Test history behind team-mate James Anderson.

Broad said he made the decision on Friday evening.

“It’s been a wonderful ride, a huge privilege to wear the Nottinghamshire and the England badge as much as I have,” he told Sky Sports.

He has been one of England’s great performers in Ashes cricket, taking a record 151 Test wickets against Australia.

Richard Gould, chief executive of the England and Wales Cricket Board, paid tribute to Broad, calling him “quite simply one of England’s all-time greats”.
