The Oval: Playing his Test innings, speedster Stuart Broad pulled off a stunning victory for the host to level the Ashes 2023 2-2 at The Oval, on Monday, July 31.
37-year-old first hunted down Todd Morphy, who was batting at 18 and was looking good enough for the host but Broad’s outswinger stunned the Aussie and reduced the visitors to 329/9. With 55 more runs required for Australia to win the bilateral 3-1, the onus was on Josh Hazlewood and Alex Carey to guide their side home.
But, Broad brought the best of himself as he finished his Test career with 604 wickets by dismissing Alex Carey 28 (50) on Day 5 of 5th Ashes Test, soon after. As expected, the whole Oval crowd was on feet to acknowledge the brilliance of Stuart Broad. Check the dismissals here.
Despite winning first two games, Australia could not win the Ashes 2023 as England made a remarkable comeback by drawing the 3rd Ashes Test and winning the next two.
However, Australia has retained the Ashes as they won it in previous edition.
