Broad hits a spectacular six and Wagner makes a perfect comeback
However, in England’s first innings, Stuart Broad hogged the limelight when he hit a six off Neil Wagner’s bowling. This was purely entertaining and Wagner didn’t expect Broad to have a go at him in the first place.
Nonetheless, there was something else in store for the cricket fans. Neil Wagner took perfect revenge by crashing Broad’s stumps. This was one heck of a spectacular comeback by Wagner. Broad managed to score 10 runs.
