London, May 26 (ANI): England are learning to win without Andrew Flintoff and Kevin Pietersen, claims all-rounder Stuart Broad, 22.
He insists that others thrive on the responsibility of performing when the two highest-profile players are missing.
On the eve of today’s third one-dayer against the Windies at Edgbaston, Broad said: “It would be great to win this series without Fred and KP.
“We can’t rely on two players. I thrive on that extra responsibility. I like taking the new ball. I don’t think we rely on Fred too much — we can definitely win the World Twenty20 without him. I’m close to 50 one-dayers and only about 15 have been with Fred,” The Sun quoted Broad, as saying.
Flintoff will miss the World Twenty20, which starts on June 5, following ankle surgery, while Pietersen has a sore Achilles. (ANI)
