London: At 22, Stuart Broad has become one of the daddies of England bowling attack.
Notts star Broad and Lancashire swinger Jimmy Anderson will take the new ball in the First Test against West Indies at Lord"s on Wednesday.
It means that, after just 15 Tests, Broad is suddenly an old pro in international terms compared to his team-mates, reports The Sun.
Broad said: “It will be good to have that extra responsibility and help a couple of lads settle into Test cricket. I believe I can help them. You"re always looking for responsibility and I"ll enjoy it."
“I"ve played a lot of cricket with Bressie and Onions on 'A" tours. They are both very talented boys and I"m looking forward to seeing what they can do," he added.
“Onions has been bowling fantastically well for Durham and Bressie is a very good cricketer. As long as they relax and enjoy the occasion and don"t get too overawed — that"s where Jimmy and I can give them advice — then I see no reason why they can"t start fantastically well," Broad added.
