England’s decision to go with Anderson, Archer and Wood for the first match, which the West Indies won by four wickets, snapped the 34-year old Broad’s run of 51 consecutive home Tests

England’s Stuart Broad said he considered retiring after being omitted for last month’s series opener against the West Indies at Ageas Bowl in Southampton.

England’s decision to go with James Anderson, Jofra Archer and Mark Wood for the first match, which the West Indies won by four wickets, snapped the 34-year old Broad’s run of 51 consecutive home Tests.

The right-arm quick returned to claim 16 wickets in the next two Tests as England won back-to-back matches to triumph 2-1, with Broad picked as the player of the series.

Playing the series in a bio-secure bubble, to prevent the Covid-19 spread, made dealing with the disappointment a lot more difficult, he said.

Broad, with 501 wickets, is second only to new ball colleague Anderson (589) in the list of most Test wickets by an English bowler.
