Srinagar, July 28: After being dropped from first Test against West Indies, seasoned England pacer Stuart Broad went out his anger by questioning the decision and what followed once he was included in team for second Test has those who dropped him into silence.
On Tuesday Broad became second English bowler and seventh overall in World Cricket reach 500 wicket milestone in Test Cricket.
Broad reached to landmark when he had West Indies opener Kraigg Brathwaite plumb lbw for 19 at Old Trafford on the fifth and final day of the third Test, with England pushing for a victory that would see them take the series 2-1.

Broad’s haul of 6-31 in the tourists’ meagre first innings 197. That was in reply to England’s 369, which featured Broad’s 62 batting at No 10.
