Hard for Broad & Anderson to play together in Australia, feels Siddle

"Pakistan could come here and shock the England team if the English side plays as they did in the first Test against West Indies at Southampton", Vaughan is quoted as telling Cricbuzz.

In the recently-concluded #raisethebat series against West Indies, England opted for Anderson in the first Test while Broad got the nod in the second.

England beat West Indies 2-1 in the first global test series since the COVID-19 pandemic suspended the sport in March, winning the third test by 269 runs on Tuesday.

The 34-year-old pacer said he does not set targets but is not completely ruling out the possibility of getting to 600 wickets. "You can't say anything better than that as a player, that he delivers when it's most important".

The lack of 50- over regulars Joe Root, Ben Stokes, Jos Buttler, Chris Woakes and Jofra Archer has actually opened a chance for fringe gamers to stake their claim for a location in Eoin Morgan's side.

"I want to congratulate West Indies for taking the plunge and making the trip to England", Brathwaite said on his final broadcast on BBC Radio for the tour.

"People like Tom Banton, Reece Topley back into that side, what a chance for these men to press their name forward".

Walsh, however, credited the return to the England team after their loss in the first Test.

Broad followed in the footsteps of Anderson to join the elite 500 Test wicket club, a landmark achieved by only by six others in cricket history.

He stated, "County cricket is starting on Saturday, August 1".

"It sums Stuart up, he seems to get on those hot streaks and have a real impact in games and I " m really pleased for him to get to that milestone - 500 Test wickets is a phenomenal achievement.

"I think both of them have spoken about the Ashes".
