English pacemaker Stuart Broad has shut down an Indian fan on Twitter who said the hosts are dependent on the weather to get results in Test matches. England are currently playing India at Lord’s in the second of the 5-match Test series.
After choosing to bowl first, Joe Root’s men failed to break through through a solid opening partnership. Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul. The conditions favored the bowlers, but the openers stood strong and went through an avalanche of test deliveries before scoring.
There was a lack of poison in the English bowling attack except James Anderson. It never really seemed like Rohit or Rahul were really having problems. This provoked some reactions from users on Twitter and one of them said that England depends on the weather. However, Stuart Broad did not intend to put it down and he gave an appropriate answer. He wrote:
“England recently won the Test series against India in 2011, 2014 and 2018. I should have been very happy with the weather all day!”

Stuart Broad has ruled out the entire Test series against India
On the eve of the second Test, England suffered a blow when Stuart Broad was ruled out of the Test series against India. He suffered a muscle tear in his right leg, which was revealed during an MRI scan to which he was sent on Wednesday.
Broad sustained the injury during a warm-up session with the team. He was on course to play his 150th Test match, but he will have to wait until the Ashes to reach the milestone. Broad revealed on his Instagram how the injury happened:
“Things can change so quickly. During the warm-up, I jump a hurdle, end up a little uncomfortable on my right ankle, and then the next step feels like I was hit as hard as a rope on the back of my leg. Everything so innocent.”
“Season over to miss this Indian Test series but now a big focus on Australia. I’m going to take my time, not rush, baby stairs, and be the strongest I can go to. I will watch every ball from my bench in the hope of seeing runs and wickets in the glorious sunshine of the Lord,He revealed.
England have announced that Saqib Mahmood has been named as Broad’s cover for the series.
