Stuart Broad was denied from entering Lord’s a few days after his remarkable performance in the Ashes

Stuart Broad

When Stuart Broad took the final two wickets in England’s incredible sixth Ashes Test victory over longtime foe Australia last month, it was a fairytale finale to his cricketing career.

The renowned fast bowler, though, had no idea what to expect on his first day of work as a pundit for Sky Sports’ The Hundred, a professional franchise 100-ball cricket competition.

In actuality, it was an ironic and embarrassing start, to say the least, since Broad was barred from entering Lord’s, the very field where he had produced some incredible spells for England.

Broad has recognized that it’s a different game with a completely different set of rules as he begins his new life in the commentary booth with legends like Nasser Hussain, Michael Atherton, and the rest as part of the Sky Sports crew.

The 37-year-old star was left trapped outside, red-faced and furious, after his attempt to enter Lord’s using his player pass was rejected by gate officials at the iconic cricket ground.

Broad has a press card from Sky Sports, but he was unable to enter since the ECB had previously banned the England player pass.

After the issue was resolved, the former England cricketer was led into the renowned venue’s media booth where he joined former England captain Eoin Morgan on the panel.

With 151 Australian victims from 40 Tests, Broad has the most of any bowler against the Green Caps and was England’s greatest wicket-taker in Ashes history with 604 Test wickets from 167 games.
