Only the second Englishman to take 400 Test wickets, at the age of 32 Stuart Broad already finds himself described as an all-time great.
From Test debut in 2007, the four-times Ashes winner has remained an England ever-present, winning over 120 Test caps. His spell on the first morning of the 2015 Ashes Test at Trent Bridge has become cricketing folklore. On the same day the county club paid its tribute to the passing of all-conquering captain Clive Rice, the stars aligned to see Nottingham-born Broad run through the tourists, taking 8-15 in an unchanged spell of controlled fast bowling.
