Stuart Broad looks to future after 'going from diminishing cricketer to reinvented'

It was quite a summer for Stuart Broad, who had started it fearing he might be put out to seed but ended it a rejuvenated leader of the England attack.
Broad lost his position as an England regular during the winter, and was incensed when he was not picked for the first Test in Barbados in February, a sign that perhaps he was reaching the end of the road at the age of 33.
But missing the Tests in Sri Lanka last November and having to fight to regain his place in the Caribbean rejuvenated Broad who was England’s leading wicket taker in the Ashes with 23 at 26.65 and enjoyed total domination over David Warner, dismissing him seven times.
With James Anderson contributing just four overs to the Ashes series, Broad ended up playing more Tests than expected but it gave him the opportunity to prove he still has a couple of years left as long as he stays fit. Test series in New Zealand and South Africa will suit him over the next five months, although he may well be rested for the final series of the winter in Sri Lanka next March, and there is an outside chance he could chase down Anderson as England’s leading wicket-taker.
Anderson’s future is unknown until he proves he has recovered from a calf injury that is expected to rule him out of the New Zealand tour when the squad is announced next week. Anderson has 575 Test wickets, Broad 467.
