The Broad Family
Former England opening batsman, Chris, began his international career in 1984 for the second test match against the West Indies at Lords. Shortly after, in 1986, he made his One Day International debut against Australia in Perth. In the 1986-87 Ashes series, Chris became the third Englishman to score centuries in three consecutive matches. His career spanned 25 test matches, with 6 centuries, all away from home, including a high score of 162.
In 1987 he was awarded International Cricketer of the year. Chris also played at home for Gloucestershire, Nottinghamshire and Orange Free State. In 2003 Chris became an ICC Test Official, refereeing for both Test matches and One Day Internationals.
Current England Test and One Day International cricketer, Stuart also plays for Nottinghamshire County Cricket Club when at home (his father’s former club) but has also played for Leicestershire County Cricket Club while still attending Oakham School. In 2006 Stuart was voted Young Cricketer of the year by the Cricket Writer’s Club.
Stuart’s highest acclaim to date is being a member of the victorious 2009 and 2011 Ashes squad and winning Man of the Match for the 5th Test at the Oval. Stuart is part of the England Cricket side playing home and abroad in all formats of the game, and is currently a member of the 2015 Ashes team.
