But his innings overshadows Trott's which was far more important for the long term - imagine if we'd gone to Australia having suffered two embarrassing defeats in a row to Pakistan ( tempting fate here I know. )
I'm really looking forward to Trott annoying the hell out of the convicts with his obduracy and sheer bloody-mindedness. Did anyone see him still marking out his wicket even after stumps were called last night. Brilliantly obsessive.


Totally agree. We are onto a winner with Trott I'm convinced of it.......a true test batsmen in the Kallis mold (Ooooops again with the comparisons:P)

He does look a bit like him, doesn't he? Even bowls at a similar pace, too!

Anyway, back to Stuart Broad, he's shown that he really is "better than his dad," having just beaten Chris Broad's highest Test score.

Have you forgotten Edgbaston 2005? England 1-0 down in the Ashes and two great knocks plus some vital wickets too.

Fantastic effort from Stuart yesterday so why cloud it with the comparisons?

He reminds me a Sir Geoffrey Boycott.
England played a one-day international against Ireland in Belfast last year and during the warm-up most of the England players were mucking about and signing a few autographs.
My nipper was desperate to get Trott's as he'd only just broken into the team - but despite loads of shouting and cajoling Trott simply scowled at us and insisted on completing his full practice.
He then came over and did some signing - begrudgingly - and then wandered off to prepare for the match.
I remember thinking then that this feller meant business.

The time when Broad has made it is when he is no longre being called the new Flintoff, new Botham, or anything else.

Just Stuart Broad, full stop. When that name along is enough we'll know we have a star.
