''''We failed as batters, but bowled at our very best,'''' says England''''s Stuart Broad

''''We failed as batters, but bowled at our very best,'''' says England''''s Stuart Broad Dubai, Feb. 9 : Candidly admitting that England's batsmen did not play Pakistan's spinners well, fast bowler Stuard Broad, however, said that he was very pleased with the way he bowled in the three Test series.

Broad, who grabbed 13 wickets, said: "I don't think I've ever bowled better for England, to be honest. Certainly my line was the best it has ever been."

The Daily Mail further quoted him, as saying: "Ottis Gibson, our old bowling coach, always used to say it's not what the ball does, it's where it does it from, and I was able to get seam movement from around off stump here. I was really happy with that."

Broad further said that his wicket haul for the series was a big reminder that it "means nothing unless you're winning. We beat India 4-0 and I had a bit of success with the ball, so it meant a huge amount that I was able to contribute to a winning cause. I probably bowled better here but it means a huge amount less." Planning pays off

He said: "David Saker, our bowling coach, has been a great addition to the ranks and we were fortunate to go to Potchefstroom in South Africa before Christmas for a training camp that got us up to speed. We set our bowling standards for the trip when we had the ICC XI in trouble in the first warm-up match and continued all the way through." (ANI)
